Nice pic, creative! I love minestrone and should make it before it gets too hot here to enjoy it.
Kay...yes, that was a big tri tip, almost 3 lbs. Pot pie is a good idea for leftovers, if I could just make a smallish one. Gosh, cooking for one and still trying to keep in mind the leftovers for a great cut of meat isn't easy. I should have cut it in half and frozen the other half when I bought it, but I didn't.
Steve...holy cow, 5 shrimp/lb are some hefty shrimp. Looking forward to hearing how you made them, and seeing pics of your dinner.
