Will You Be My Lobster?

Good morning to all of our beloved friends and clients and as you know this week is all about the Love...Will You Be My Lobster?

Now for those of you who have been blessed with high cheekbones, athletic physiques or are basically just plain hot, you can stop reading this blog entry, this really doesn't pertain to you. Now for the rest of us who are not going to make People Magazines Hottest List, you might want to take note.

I should preface this message by stating, we are all beautiful inside and out and looks should never be taken into consideration when valuing your self-worth. That said, Thursday is Valentine's Day and I can bet you Gisele Bundchen never had a stressful V-Day in her life. I wish I could say the same for this Half-Lebanese Fishmonger whose grade school memories of V-Day still haunt me to this day. Sure, I was a little chubby and maybe I had a cold sore for most of my 3rd Grade career but for the love of Cod, those kids could be cruel. One V-Day in particular still stays with me until this day. I remember the teacher announced it was time to put our Valentines Cards in everyone's heart shaped folders that were tacked on to the bulletin board, I just wrote one out that year to a special little girl named Tracy (last name omitted). I was hoping that in the commotion of grade-schoolers that no one would see me put my card in her "stuffed"envelope but just as I slipped my card in, our met eyes, I smiled trying to cover my cold sore and then it happened...no she didn't smile back, in fact she gave me a look one would have smelling Limburger cheese for the first time. Ow, that hurt but luckily for me we broke for lunch and my loving Mother must have known that her little boy was going to have a rough day because she made me a Baloney Sandwich the size of a baseball mitt and packed not one but two packs of Yodels in my lunch box that day.

What's the point of this story, really none but Tracy if you are out there, I'm doing great...sniff...really I am. I guess the real point is that I didn't catch my gorgeous spouse with good looks but instead won her over by my Little Chef prowess. That's right, I can still see her first glance of romance when she spotted me sautéing some shrimp and garlic and let's not get started when she knew I could roll sushi like a champ. Sure, you get your Lover flowers or chocolates but nothing says "Meow Pussycat" like creating a dish of amorous intentions in your "Love Kitchen" and Metro will have it all, from our V-Day Specials to fresh Tuna, Crab Legs, Lobsters, Shrimp and of course Oysters. And should you want to shoot that arrow right through the heart, don't forget about our Caviar Gift Box Promotion. Please feel free to call to reserve any of these Seafood Love Offering and I hope you enjoy today's recipes featuring Pan Seared Tuna Over a Mediterranean Inspired Salad & "Deviled" Rock Shrimp Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms. Stay Lovely knowing we Love you.
