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).

This week, the music room gets a new ceiling and re-finished walls. The house is, by-and-large, a disaster, but the endgame makes it worth it!

I was awakened this morning by what I thought was rain, but turned out to be squatters (read: rodents) in the ceiling of our bedroom. They have one more week to find the bait boxes and feast themselves silly before Mr. Hinkelgruber goes in after them. (I'm rooting for the feasting!) In the meantime, I've got to find a podcast that will drown them out.

For those of you wondering about my "to-do" list, the front windows have been painted and the new shutters are to be installed on the 25th of the month. My goal is to have the ceiling and walls of the music room done within six weeks, but we'll see if my plaster guy has the same goal.

I went to the beach with a group of women friends, and while I did enjoy it, six women in one place is a lot of estrogen. (Regardless of the fact they're all either menopausal or peri-menopausal!) The weather was beautiful four out of five days, and despite the tsunami alarm system going off at the condo (due to high winds and rough bar conditions the one bad weather day) it was quite remarkable for the end of January on our coastline.
This week's menu features some old favorites as well as a few items that are sure to become favorites. My theory? Mr. Hinkelgruber is lonely for some of you to have dinner with us and is coercing you here!
