Enhance the Culinary Romance

Good morning to all of our beloved friends and clients who I sincerely hope are enjoying your "Love Hangover" after yesterday's Valentine's Day celebration.

Please don't worry though, that warm glow of amore will end as soon as your spouse asks you if you remembered to pick up the dry cleaning or that this Sunday you have to celebrate her Uncle Frank's 70th birthday at the In-laws house... "Yeah, I love watching her family "open mouth" eat ice cream cake and complain about how horrible it is getting old." I definitely didn't want to take a little afternoon "couch slumber" on Sunday.

Now for those of you who still need a motivation to enhance the culinary romance, don't forget our Valentine's Day Specials will be running through Saturday (see just below this paragraph.) Now if you're anything like me, I would love to catch up on the Winter Olympic Games this weekend. And I can honestly say with all of the divisiveness these days, it's just plain refreshing to cheer on our American Athletes as they battle on the world's stage. Seriously though, your heart has to go out to these extraordinary individuals for putting it all on the line to achieve greatness. And I could not be more humbled that these brave men and women forge on even when they make a mistake. That not only shows tremendous character but a will to never give up no matter what obstacle abounds . I mean really, when a figure skater falls on the ice, am I the only one who screams out "Oh *#!@", I think not, yet they get right back up and finish that routine. I for one would just have taken off my skates and threw them across the rink while expletives "volcanicly" erupted from my mouth. Heck, I once ran a 5K and about 2 minutes into the run, my socks started to slide down and that's all the excuse I needed to stop, that and I thought I saw someone in my family eating a pineapple cheese Danish on the sidelines... I love those things.

Anyway, I'm just a big fan of the Olympics but the only Medals I pursue are the Golden accolades of my loved ones as they enjoy a meal that I prepared. Should you want to step on the culinary podium yourself then look no further than today's recipes featuring Moroccan Herb Pan Roasted Salmon with Couscous & Panko Crusted Skate Fillet with a Fennel Salad... I can hear our anthem playing already.
