Lunch: Sautéed baby Swiss chard with pancetta, rice. The Swiss chard was from CSA Week #4. This was very good and my favorite way to make Swiss chard now.

Did the first step of the ever-delicious Tom Collichio beef short ribs. This involved browning the ribs, cooking a mirepoix and marinating the ribs in the red wine and mirepoix overnight.
