Save Me From My Confectionary Plunge

Good morning to all of our beloved friends and clients and I would be remiss if I did not take a moment to congratulate the Villanova Wildcats on their NCAA Championship Win...GO CATS!

While I did participate in several "Brackets" and did pick Nova to win, sadly my picks early on have put me in the running for "good sport" and not in the "money circle" this year. All fairness to me, I did pick my brackets with a time honored tradition of pulling colored marbles out of a bag to see who would win each game. So regarding my results, I think I fared pretty good.

Now I admit I was a bit distracted while trying to watch the game last night due to the fact that I might have birthed a new chin this weekend resulting from my Easter Feaster bender. Now please don't get me wrong, I am not complaining seeing as though this new addition to my face was completely self-induced as I consumed with the ravenous hunger only seen on "Shark Week." But in my defense, what evil culinary genius would put together a holiday with Salmon, Ham, Lamb and Babka and then top it off with enough seductive sugary treats to make even the most disciplined eater jump into the chocolate river in Willie Wonka's factory. Oh, I dove in hard but unfortunately there were no Oompa Loompas to save me from my confectionary plunge. But enough of that, it's now time to take responsibility for my actions and while I thought hard about "ripping it up" in the gym or even adopting a new "cleansing" diet regimen, those ideas didn't seem to feel right. No, by taking responsibility for my actions I mean owning this hot mess and naming my new chin. And yes, after much thought I came up with the name Leonardo da Chinci. It's good right? I wanted this to be a strong chin with a good future and not some weak chin that requires a goatee to bolster his self-image.

As you probably know, Leonardo means 'brave lion' and I believe Chinci means, extra layer of fat under your original chin. I see great things I the future for this chin whether it's attending a party and overflowing over a scarf or being a titan of industry while letting the turtlenecks of the world that they need to expand your fibers in order to fit into this new era of chin...LONG LIVE LEONARDO DA CHINCI! Well that felt good but just in case Leo starts to become problematic I have created two healthy and easy recipes to kick him off my face if needed. I sincerely hope you will enjoy today's recipes featuring Roasted Dilled Garlic Shad Fillet & Pan Seared Sea Bass with a Salmoriglio Sauce.
