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).

The concrete guy says he's going to pour on Tuesday, so a week from now, we should at least have some new concrete sidewalks and maybe even two new retaining walls. I only hope the back wall is constructed in time that the sloughing at the alley stops before our yard ends up in the alley.
I think I hear my oven calling - I think this April fool will be baking this week!

How does that adage go, "In the spring a young man's fancy turns to thoughts of love...?" Well, when you're a middle aged woman and man, it turns of thoughts of new concrete! We got an estimate today, and it looks like we're getting two new retaining walls, new stairs, a new back porch, new sidewalks - whew - that's a lot of concrete.
The other thing this woman's thoughts turn to is lemony desserts! This week? Lemon meringue pie! Yum!
