Fish Tuesday….Mediterranean Mahi Mahi

REPOST…Exactly how fast is time moving? In my world, it’s racing! Since it is moving so fast I’ve decided to make my quick-and-easy Mediterranean Mahi Mahi recipe for Fish Tuesday. This recipe pairs fresh (or canned) tomatoes and seasonings with kalamata olives to create a fabulous and flavorful Mediterranean dish. Who has time to labor over the stove now anyway?  We are all desperately trying to eat and live healthier and I love to discover or create quick meals that accomplish that goal. Oh yeah…that’s why I started this blog, for peeps like me who are always on the go but want to eat healthy flavorful food.

Back to how fast time is moving: here’s an interesting article on Time Perception that I stumbled upon researching why time seems to be moving so rapidly. Once I read this article I decided that I need to add ‘learn new things daily – not just do the same old stuff’ to my to do list. Works for me! Let me know why you think time is moving so fast…and suggestions on how you slow it down.
