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).

Tank 10 Martini or French 75?!?

Well, the latest trip to Vegas was great fun - if uneventful.  The weather was clear (though chilly and windy), and I learned about a new "hot-spot" to experience happy hour!  Mandarin Oriental - a must see for everyone.  The lobby (as well as the bar) is on the 23rd floor, with a spectacular view of the strip.

Back to the gym for an all out 80-day, hardcore regimen in anticipation of another cruise. (Yep, I said it!)

Cleanliness is next to Godliness...or something like that!

A clean house is wonderful!  And, after each holiday season, my house is cleaner than it will be all year long. This year, especially so, since we've been little-by-little spiffing up the house and we'll be having new interior storm windows installed this week! Next up is new shutters for the front windows and then a couple of major projects:  ceilings and walls in the living, dining, and music rooms. No, no, no - we're not looking to sell out - just decided it's time to fix it up like we've always wanted.

You'll notice this week's menu is somewhat of a rehash of last week's - "stuff" got in the way of last week's meals, but we're back on track for this one.  Oh, and Vegas calls, so next week at this time, I'll be heading for "Sin City"!
