Started a batch of braised beef short ribs. It's a two-day process, since they marinate in wine overnight.

It involves browning the short ribs, 9 minutes on the top and bottom sides. This is not exactly a cheap dish to make; there's $ 14.32 in short ribs in the pan! It will make somewhere between 4 and 6 dinners, however. I'll see once I weigh the cooked pieces.

Dinner: Frozen pizza. I know it's kind of weird after cooking all that food. It's one quarter of a DiGiorno frozen supreme pizza, previously baked, re-frozen, vacuum sealed, and baked again today.
