Super Bowl Appetizers Seafood News Coupon Codes Partner Offers
It has been busy the past week. We had a couple nice calm days and got some storm damage cleaned up or repaired, added additional lighting to the packaging area and replaced all of the outside flood lights with compact flourescent (CFL) bulbs. Inside, we took a look at our inventory and have placed our odd lots and special Christmas Gift items on sale
in our Overstocks & Closeouts Section.

Seafood Acessories - We have been stressing for some time the concept "mise en place" a French culinary term for "put in place" or getting the chopping, dicing, slicing etc. done before the cooking starts.
