And the Walls...... Come Tumblin' Tumblin' Down

The store is really starting to open up and give everyone an idea of the changes that are taking place in our Coral Springs location.  It may be hard to believe but the store is going through a complete transformation and the end result will be quite impressive especially knowing that all this construction is being done while still remaining open for business.  The nights are long but the destination is near.

The walls that make up our catering office are getting ready to come down.

A view from the new side that will be the location of our meat department area.

This area you see will soon be a retail area with shelves on the wall and bring you right into the new and improved meat and seafood departments.  We can hardle contain ourselves!

How Do You Like Our Tile? (Coral Springs Update)

It is amazing at how every part of the store is being either rebuilt, redesigned, replaced, or expanded

The tiles alone are transforming the look of the store. Wait until the other design aspects are executed...

Well sometimes the week is long and it feels like even Wednesday is fighting to come along. So I figured to put a  little funny humor in the mix to help us all get through the first half of the week. We hope you enjoy the following video and please be aware that there is a little profanity.

Coral Springs renovation update...

Hello all! Well for those of you who frequent the Coral Springs location, you are probably noticing the transformation taking place.  We are in the thick of the renovation/expansion and it is only going to get more hectic.  Each week, you should be noticing subtle changes taking place and immediately after Easter, we kick it in a high gear once again.  Here are some photos once again.  We will try to keep you updated as often as we can.

Once complete, the store will have new floors throughout

It is a tedious process but the completed floors will be easy to maintain and durable...

The entire floor will be comprised of 5 colors; this includes work areas that are not visible to the public...
Painting has also begun throughout the store.

Italian & Sicilian Sayings

A while back, we had some posts titled "But it Sounds Much Better in Italian" where we stated Italian proverbs with their English Translation.  We really want to post many more but would like our readers to contribute.  There are so many proverbs from all regions and with their dialect they are truly unique in all their wisdom.  If you have any sayings that you would like to share, simply comment on this post or send an email to and we can compilate them and give credit to our contributors.  In the meantime, I thought these videos could maybe get some of you motivated....

And some Sicilian sayings...

Vegetarian / Meatless Dish: Sicilian Chickpeas & Spinach


There’s been a push by nutritionists for Americans to eat meatless one day a week. Restaurants have hopped on board, with many offering “Meatless Mondays” and a greater number of vegetarian options. The chefs on the Culinary Visions Panel ease the way with a tasty medley of chickpeas and spinach heightened with cumin and smoked paprika.


Serves: 12
3 tbsp. olive oil
6 garlic cloves, chopped
2 lb., 4 oz. fresh spinach leaves
1 lb. (3 cups) cooked chickpeas
1 1/2 tsp. smoked Spanish paprika
1 1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. toasted cumin seeds
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
Grated lemon zest, optional


  1. Heat olive oil in large skillet over med. heat. Add garlic; sauté until beginning to brown. Stir in spinach leaves; cook until wilted.
  2. Combine chickpeas with paprika, salt, toasted cumin and fresh lemon juice.
  3. To serve, stir chickpea mixture into wilted spinach and garlic. Cook until heated through. Garnish with lemon zest, if desired.
