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).

The Cubbies could come back....

The beauty of being retired (well, sort of) is that you have no defined schedule. That means you can have a Friday that allows you to watch Cubbies Baseball at 10:00 am and have your world revolve for that day around that. And that's exactly what this Friday meant to me...Cubbies Baseball, and nothing else! Kerry Wood's retirement was moving, but even he couldn't help them win.

The dining room is being 'resurfaced' Monday, which means the only thing left to our interior redecorating is the painting of the living room, dining room, and hallway. What a relief that will be!?!

The youngest Hinkelgruber graduates from the University next month, and has a job already. One more relief for all of us (him most of all!).

I baked brioche last week, and I think I'll try it again this week - I'm thinking a nice brioche bread for toast sounds terrific.
