Anna and I proceeded with the various steps, and we had fun talking and laughing while we sauteed little boiling onions.
Here she is sauteing again; this time it is the veggies which were combined with the meat in the roasting pan.
Whew, Anna needed a break during which she called Aunt Margi.
While browning the meat, she stayed at arm's length to avoid the spitting. (Anna looks like there was a large snake in the skillet, and she feared being bitten.)
Anna was a master with the big French chef knife. She cut the meat into cubes with great proficiency. (Look at that concentration.)
