Great suggestions. Thanks! Actually, while organizing for my prep, I had another thought.
Maybe the best way to do it is to cook everything tonight up to the point of adding the tomatos and simmering (i.e., saute veggies, add and cook the meats, add wine, reduce, add milk, reduce). Then remove from heat, add a little beef stock, cool slightly, and refrigerate until tomorrow. The only thing left to do in the morning will be to add the tomatos and simmer until done.
