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).

Mail Call!!!

We're re-positioning our mailbox! I talked to two different mailmen this past month:  the regular one (Jeff) and one of our utility carriers, and both agreed that moving the mailbox to a spot where they didn't have to bend down was a good thing. (Currently, it's in our door.  And frankly, the dog tears up the door as she tries to get at the carrier - not Jeff - but every other carrier who has come to deliver our mail.) So today, Mr. Hinkelgruber, is installing a new slot. It still comes into the house (something very important to me), but now doesn't have to compete with the door opening and the dog going nuts.  (She'll likely still go nuts, but at least not on the door!) And, this means that this summer, I can get a screen door for the front door.  Yahoo!

So, my Tuesdays with Dorie (TWD) hobby yielded a lot of egg whites from one of the recipes during the week, so this Sunday's dessert is chocolate French macarons (well, I'd spell it macaroons, but the website from which I got the recipe spelled it with one 'o', so there) filled with chocolate ganache.  In Mr. Hinkelgruber's words, "Anything with ganache can't be bad," so we'll see.  Oh, and a French macaron has no coconut - just in case all you coconut haters were wondering.
