I actually got everything done I had planned for today, but I'm exhausted now. Made the gratin earlier today, except waited to put the bread crumb topping on until I was ready to put it in oven. I had put some garlic, spices and EVOO on some large cubes of beef yesterday. Today, I braised them in the pressure cooker with some red wine, beef broth, a can of tomatoes, various spices, onion, garlic to make a beef ragu for next week. Worked for a bit, but not much going on as hospital is still pretty quiet due to holidays. Broke down a nearly 10 pound, bone in pork butt that was on sale for .99 cents a pound this week. Got 4 nice pork steaks, close to 3 pounds (going to have slices this week and make bao buns for sammies next week) that went into a 48 hour marinade for Chinese BBQ, a couple pounds of odd sized pieces to make ground pork, a 1.5 pound piece that will make a nice small roast and about 1.25 pounds of pieces that will make nice size chunks for some kind of stew. Tomorrow, I'm going to use some of the coconut vinegar we bought for some dish we made before and make a Goan chicken vindaloo for next week. I figure the vindaloo and ragu can only benefit from a few days of melding and I'll have some easy mostly noncooking evenings.
