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).

It's beginning to look a lot like 2014...

So, lots has happened since I last posted:

  • We saw London, 
  • We saw France, 
  • We saw David with no underpants!
There's really no excuse other than no inspiration for the lack of blog posts, but in breaking with my "no New Year's Resolutions" belief, I've decided to resolve to post at least three times a month in 2014. (That gives me the opportunity to be out of town once a month and let off the hook!)

So, back to the top: we really did see those places, as well as Perugia (oh, the chocolate), Venice (oh, the mussels), Munich (oh, the beer), and Berlin and Stuttgart (oh, the Ritter Sport chocolate)! Honestly, we bought so much chocolate to bring home we had to buy another suit case! Imagine the look on the customs officer's face when I was asked what I had to declare and said, "Just chocolate!" 

The plan is to return to Florence (David's home) in three years. I'll be taking a suitcase with only six changes of underwear so I can bring back leather shoes, boots and purses. Florence is the leather capitol of Italy, perhaps all of Europe. I can hardly wait!
