Hello Grill

Good morning to all of our beloved friends and clients and I would be lying if I did not tell you how much I'm looking forward to the warmer temperatures that are about to come our way this weekend.

Heck, I even went outside to my grill last night to reintroduce myself..." Uh, hello grill, I don't know if you remember me, I'm Mark the half Lebanese fishmonger" my grill responded with a slightly perturbed tone, "Yeah, I remember you, just out of curiosity, where the hell have you been?" I was taken back by this and clearly remember what I said in late fall to the grill "You really don't remember when I said, I probably won't be seeing you for a while with Winter on the way..." but the Grill persisted "Really, All I remember is all the great times you had with me last Summer as I grilled your clams, shrimp and untold whole Branzini" Whoa, this just got weird I thought and quite frankly, a little uncomfortable but I took a deep breath and stated "You know, the propane flows both ways grill, you could have at least waved at me when I was having a cigar outside this past Thanksgiving" thinking that I had successfully flipped the script on the grill.

However, according to my grill I was dead wrong and then she really let me have it by barking out "Really, Really, I've seen at least four of your neighbors grilling Swordfish and Tuna this winter and Bill, your next store neighbor, even treated his grill to a gorgeous ring of Kielbasa you ungrateful *#!@%" Whoa, that stung and without another word I immediately covered the grill and thought it best to let her cool off until spring.

Seriously, I was just trying to keep in touch and it really blew up in my face...it wasn't just me right? Anyway, I sincerely hope you all savor this weekend's respite from the bone chilling cold and I for one, will not be using my grill. That said, I have created some really fantastic recipes, that are not for the grill, which I sincerely hope you will enjoy featuring, Pan Roasted Halibut with a Spicy Pistachio Pesto & Oven-Roasted Zaatar Branzino and Fingerling Potatoes with a Sesame Yogurt Drizzle. Oh and by the way, I did also take the propane tank off the grill as well... childish perhaps but I think I got my point across.
