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).

Chewing gum head...

There are few things that make one feel worse than a head cold...you're not really sick, you just feel like crap and if you could put your head on the mantle for about three days, all would be good. For me, the worst part is wanting to sit and do nothing and have no one bother me. Boy, I'm going to make a great old person!

Mr. Hinkelgruber took care of me last evening by going and getting hot and sour soup from a local restaurant for dinner. I truly believe that the cure for the common cold is in hot and sour - as hot as you can stand it, oh, and lots of water. I also believe that a cold runs the following course: 2-days to get it; 2-days to have it; 2-days to get over it. This means that by Wednesday, I'll be completely cured.

I did something this year I've planned to do for the past ten - I wrapped Christmas gifts as I bought them! It's funny how much pressure and stress is gone when the thought of wrapping a full holiday's worth of gifts isn't looming over you. I really should do this every year!

Everything on this week's menu is from a new cookbook we received this week. Instead of subscribing to a certain cooking magazine this year, we decided to see if they'd simply send us the annual compilation of each issue. And, they did! So, every recipe is new and they all come from the 2012 Cook's Country. Mr. Hinkelgruber won't be searching for the recipes in innumerable volumes!
