Take Time to Smell the Hummus of Life


Good morning to all of our beloved friends and clients and the Holiday Season is fully upon us, I urge you all to stay as peaceful as you can. What the Hake fillet are you talking about fishman? What I am trying to say is, just try to make a sincere effort not to let the stress of the season turn you into an unbearable Jack@$$ to your family and friends.

Now I am not suggesting you go knees deep in libation to calm your seasonal woes (although this is a valid way to settle your nerves, it doesn't leave you "present" for your loved ones) but instead slow things down a bit and really take time to smell the hummus of life (I was never a big rose fan). But fishmonger, how is this possible when I have dozens of gifts to get not to mention getting my spouse on a ladder to hang the decorations?

Relax and take a deep cleansing breath...no, deeper, and let your kitchen be your sanctuary of love and peaceful vibes. That's right little chef, the calming motion of chopping and sautéing will be your new mantra...say it with me "Chop...breath...Chop...breath...you get the picture. And think what this will do for your family and friends as you calmly gift them with a delicious plate of love and serenity.

Now I know some of you are thinking, if someone ticks me off with a chef knife in my hand, I might be carving up a pan seared spouse heart for dinner. Come on, little chef, lower the heat on that burner of yours and know that we are making fresh seafood, which will get you out of the kitchen in under an hour. Heck, I would be in full homicide mode if you told me I was making Boeuf Bourguignon on a Wednesday night, no I'm talking about a quick sauté or pan sear with some fresh Salmon or Wild Shrimp...cleansing breath out. I know what you are thinking, your Chi is feeling better already but don't take my word for it, check out today's peacefully easy recipes featuring One Skillet Pesto Shrimp and Veggies & Mediterranean Salmon Pan Sear with Artichokes and Capers. And most importantly let's not forget your friendly fishmongers at Metro, who are here to help you through culinary anxiety with suggestions, recipes and gentle hugs if need be.

As always, thank you for spending this time with us and please don't for get to breathe.
