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).

Happy Cinco de Mayo! oh, yeah, and Derby Day!

Derby Day and Cinco de Mayo on one day! What's a drinking girl to do? Mix mint juleps and Margaritas, of course! Mr. Hinkelgruber spent an hour looking for the "right" guacamole recipe last night (right being the one that Mrs. Hinkelgruber wanted...) and then Mrs. Hinkelgruber found it in the second place she looked. (No, that wasn't a passive aggressive move on her part, merely blind-a--ed luck!)

Our local farmer's market opens today (I can hardly wait) and the weather forecast says no rain for the next seven days...Hallelujah! Brioche dough for pecan sticky buns will be prepared this week for my baking blog friends and then I have to box up the two built ins in preparation for the rehab of the dining room. What a week!

Oh, by the way... a piece of trivia I failed to share last week... If you're entered in a trivia contest and the question is, "What did the Montgolfier brothers invent?" The answer is not golf clubs (goof-balls), but the hot air balloon.  Mr. Hinkelgruber was the big star of our previously mentioned vacation's trivia contest. That answer got our team into the finals! (Oh, and if the tie-breaker has a biblical theme, "How many people were on Noah's Ark?" The answer is eight. We didn't have any good bible readers on our team!)
