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).

Ahh, bread...the staff of life...

I've said before, I love to bake.  This past week, I baked rolls for Thanksgiving, then made my first brioche. Oh, Julia Child was right - there's nothing like brioche when it comes to bread!  Soft, sweet, crunchy crust - all the textures one could ask for.

I also did something I try to do once a year - I actually cooked a full dinner.  Yes, sports fans, me, Mrs. Hinkelgruber prepared Friday's dinner.  The turkey breast, the potatoes, the sweet potatoes, the vegetables, the pumpkin pie - all of it. (Ok, ok, ok, Mr. Hinkelgruber actually made the mashed potatoes, but those of you who have had  his mashed potatoes knows that no one makes them like he makes them!)

Mr. Hinkelgruber has a birthday this Sunday - and the man-cave (his birthday gift) should be finished by this next weekend.  Oh, how the boys will be pleased!

Oh, and just in case you were wondering:  28 days until Christmas!
