Well, after long thought (OK, 17 seconds) I've decided the Hinkelgruber family menu should be brought to the web. A couple of things for you to remember: no substitutions (Charlie's not a short-order cook, after all), and change is inevitable - Charlie may not feel like cooking kim chee on a Tuesday! Oh, and there is one request: if you're joining us for dinner, please either call or text the Scary Lady (you know the number - if you don't, you're really not invited).

May Day!

One of my favorite memories of May 1 took place in Denmark.  
As the boys and I were coming back from the "Row Boat Park," a young woman rolled down the hill at the castle.  Literally - rolled down - the hill! Turns out she and her boyfriend were engaging in the age-old socialist custom of drinking heavily on May Day (power to the worker, and all that).  Imagine my surprise, when arriving back at the "buffoonery" all the Americans in the group were gathered on a patio - drinking, well not quite so heavily, but drinking.  (For the record - they had all gone to work that morning and were dismissed at 12:00 noon...)
You know what they say...."When in Rome (or Denmark)...."
