The Day Before

Behind, but progress being made. Celery, onions, and parsley for the stuffing has been chopped--now in the fridge. The boned out hindquarter of lamb baked yesterday has been cut into cubes, just under half put in freezer bag in freezer. The slightly more than half is in a pot on the stove, with the good drippings from the baking pan, sliced potatoes, two cans of chipotle-diced-tomatoes, a slug of merlot, some sauteed chopped celery and onion, and some parsley, a bay leaf and peppercorns, in the process of becoming a lamb-potato stew that can be put in freezer containers later. Some laundry has been done; more is in the works.

Now for the baking. Bread and pies. I wanted to make that thing Ruta's mother taught me to make, but I don't know if I'll have time. There are murmurs of anticipation from guests due in tomorrow.
