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).

Day two of no rain?!? In December?!?
The drive home was so rainy, daylight was never above a dusk light. We got back into town and the street lights were on - at noon! Oh, well, we had a great respite as a lead-in to the frenzied holiday season.
The holiday decorating is done. If it's artificial, it's here! When I mentioned that I really would like some greenery so that the house would smell a little bit seasonal, Mr. Hinkelgruber said, "I think we could find one of those little pine-tree air-fresheners..." That's a tad too artificial for me.
I'll be taking a knitting class this Tuesday - I'm finally going to learn how those Scandinavians make their stranded, Fair Isle garments. We'll see if I'm not too old to learn!
Oh, and for those of you who read this, we'll be having our annual Christmas Eve bash again this year. Come on over any time after 5:00 pm and bring something you consider finger-food. Oh, and if you want to participate in our version of a gift exchange, 10 lottery scratch-off tickets.
