happy saturday, folks!
i have had a pretty busy day so far and it’s only going to get busier tonight, so i thought i would take a moment (while marshall is napping) to tell you about a special delivery!
first of all, i woke up this morning and fueled with some oat bran toast + organic peanut butter, coffee + almond milk and real simple reading.
once my tank was full, it was off to bikram. i have been going three times a week consistently and loving every single class. a very sweaty 90 minutes later, i was off to the fish market.
our family, like almost every other family around these parts, usually has ham on easter. we decided to go against tradition and have fish this year.
lucky for me, i know people in the fish biz, as i have mentioned before.
aquarius fish is the ONLY place to buy fish if you live in or around salt lake city. it is located on 3rd south and about 350 west, right next to caputo’s and carlucci’s. my friend CJ’s parents own it and CJ, cody and nick run the show. they are my fish friends.
the fish hut—as it is lovingly referred to as—always has the freshest catches, the tastiest sauces and the most flavorful fish fixings.
they know their fish. their shirts even say so.
on thursday, i asked CJ if i could pick up 3 lbs of mahi on saturday for easter dinner (because marshall LOVED it last friday at the ice cream social). he told me they weren’t going to be getting any mahi in before saturday and suggested i snag some ono instead. that was the plan.
when i arrived at the fish hut—as i so lovingly call it—today, CJ had a special surprise for me. he had ordered in some suuuper freshy fresh mahi just for me! if that isn’t love, i don’t know what is.
the best part was that the mahi had just been caught, flown in straight from hawaii and picked up at the airport. if you are living in utah, you don’t get fish fresher than that.
CJ immediately got to work on slicing and dicing my mahi. i had a front row seat on the action and was really impressed with his super speedy knife skills.
in no time at all, i had six fresh, gorgeous mahi filets. no bones, thankyouverymuch. (because i have no idea how to remove fish bones…)
talk about top notch service. with a smile.
thanks so much, CJ!
we will be grilling up this very special delivery for our semi-traditional easter dinner tomorrow. not to worry, we will still have some traditional favorites including deviled eggs and carrot cake!
hope you all are having a fabulous weekend and, if you celebrate, have a happy easter!
Q for the easter celebrators~
what are some of your traditional easter meal staples?
