So after a long day of cleaning out my old apartment, we brought a load of items up to Santa Clarita to drop off at his parent's house and then headed to Rattler's to reward ourselves for our hard work.
It was taste bud heaven. I don't know how I'm suppose to eat my regular lunch after writing this post, it's so unfair. Can't I just make the food on the page come to life? Sigh, back to reality and my regular lunch, but at least I can share the experience with you. My favorite part, besides the tri-rip... and mash potatoes... and delicious rolls, was the grilled vegetables. I hate when you order vegetables as a side and you get a pile of unappetizing steamed broccoli and carrots - how boring, it's no wonder people hardly order vegetables... but these vegetables were pure perfection! Grilled zucchini, green onions, mushrooms, carrots. So good. I can't wait to go back and order the exact same thing.
I hope I have succeeded in my goal of making your mouth water for tri-tip. If you can't make it out to the depths of the Santa Clarita Valley, don't fear, tri-tip cooking help is here! Well not quite here just yet, I'm working on perfecting a tri-tip recipe (and I'm working on getting the bf not to overcook it) and then I will share with you!
peace, love, tri-tip, and happiness!
