Oh hey, readers! Did I mention I like food?
This is the first step to my grandma's potato dumplings with pork roast and sauerkraut: The roast. It was supposed to be about 2 pounds of bone-in pork neck meat, but acquiring it was somehow challenging while Dittmer's in Mountain View is closed. So we went for the pork butt, at a massive 6 pounds, hah!
It's simmering with approximately a metric ton of cut-up onions (coincidentally a process made famous by Ray Charles with his performance of Crying Time).
Tomorrow, they'll join the star of the stage, the dumplings. Excitement ensues :)
