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).

January…the longest month...

Did you ever notice how January is really the longest month of the year, followed by February as a close second? I think it's the grey days, the cold and threat of colder weather, and even though the days are getting longer, it's really hard to notice them lengthening. But, this year, we're going to try to make these weeks go a little quicker by spending a weekend in Las Vegas! Woohoo! I can hardly wait.

We tried a new place to eat, the Italian Kitchen, right behind Belmont Station Brew Pub. I've heard it said that the real reason you can't get a decent Philly Cheesesteak on the west coast is because you can't get the right bread. All I know is that the Italian Kitchen makes its sandwiches using some of the best bread I've ever eaten! I had a roast beef and Mr. Hinkelgruber had a pork, and they were both outstanding!


  1. We recently found that place, too. Pretty nice and I like the visiting cat. Did you see her?

  2. Didn't see any cat - but I'll look for her next time.
