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).

June is here!

Ok, ok, ok...it's been since Mother's Day. But, June is here and that means that once Rose Festival is over, summer might actually rear its head. Oh, wait, once July 4, has past summer will arrive. (So, we really will have some summertime weather later this week, but I have to bitch about something!)

It's graduation season, and we have a high school graduate to honor (great-niece) and our Australian pseudo-son will graduate from Oregon State. What a great couple of weeks we have coming up. (Coupled with the sad realization that we will again be empty-nestors!)

Happy Mother's Day!

OK, so it's a made up holiday - but I'm a mom and I'll take it! The younger Hinkelgruber son came up to see me (and brought a gift: macaroni necklace - makes a mom proud!), we went to brunch (can't remember when we last went out to breakfast!) and so far, it's been a terrific day.

Yesterday, Mr. Hinkelgruber and I went to wine country to pick up three wine shipments and (this will be no surprise to anyone) came away with waaayyy more wine than we had originally planned!

The weather has been gloriously summer like for this time of year and this is something you will not hear me complaining about!
