Bob, after you pour a glass for Amber, please pour me one too.

I'm making french dips (all day in the slow cooker) out of Tri-Tip! Go figure! But, the store had them at $2.99/lb, cheaper than any other cut of beef. So it'll be fantastic tonight for sure!
With that, I'll make up a nice salad and a cheese plate.
I also made an apple pie.

dw and my boy made turkey meatballs and whole wheat penne.

i wondered why the meatballs were a lot smaller than the usual ones my wife makes, but then i saw my boy staring at me, nearly bursting with great anticipation until i tried the meatballs that he made. dw mixed them up, but he rolled them for her to fry. afterwards, he put them into the sauce to finish.

he also made me tomato soup, which was water added to some plain sauce. i don't think that i've ever enjoyed watery sauce that much in my life!

A BIG salad: romaine lettuce, fresh garden ripe tomatoes and cucumbers and thinly sliced tri-tip steak, with Asian vinaigrette dressing, and some garlic/buttered toasted French bread slices

leftover chili, skillet cornbread, broccoli, and garden salad..........chili should be really tasty after 3 days of melding all the flavors..........used tenderloin for the meat......it's really cheap here (shhhhhh---don't tell anyone here that I said that!!!)

How did you cook your tri-tip? How did you season it? Did you add liquid? What kind? How did it come out?

Tri-tip is expensive and hard to come by on the east coast. I have a couple in the freezer and I am looking for other ways to cook them other then the grill. Your reply will be most appreciated.
