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).

Spring is on it's way!

I keep a daily push-up log on the family calendar and noticed today that daylight savings time arrives a week from this Sunday. You know what that means?  Well, besides that we'll lose one hour next week, it means that spring is coming! The yard guys came yesterday and applied some sort of fertilizer, so it must be true...spring is coming. At last!

The music room is on its way to being re-done. The ceiling has been over-layed (no longer popcorn) and the walls primed for new texture. No, we're not moving - merely getting the house redone after 25-years. Some people redecorate/paint every three to five years. Not us - for us, decorating is like cars: get what you want and hold on until it either fails or you're finally tired of it. As for our decor, 25-years means it's both failing and we're tired of it (well, I am!).

A new pie recipe this week:  think Almond Joy in-a-pie! We'll see if it's as good as the picture makes it look. Then, I've joined an online group, "Tuesdays With Dorie," that is working its way through the book, Baking With Julia. First recipe:  Rugelach - a cinnamon-roll type pastry filled with nuts and dried fruit.  I'm excited!
