The darkness of night is here before you can get the lunch dishes put away. The time right now as I type is 5:12 and it is dark out side. The day has melted into night. Christmas is only a purchase away. Soon we will be saying Thanksgiving just melted into Christmas. The Christmas lights are being strung up as the music is being downloaded. The Thanksgiving turkey is thawing in the fridge. The holidays are here!
But I wanted to hold on to the daylight just a little bit longer. Enjoy the Indian summer with the autumn hue sky glowing its last light. It was 4:00 and time to crank the BBQ. Chipotle Cinnamon Tri-Tip BBQ.
I’ve always use a pkg meat marinade and had no desire to change. I loved my tri-tip just fine. But when I saw this recipe in the Raley’s advertisement, I had to try it.
It all starts with a rub of
1 teaspoon each:
O.K. so I forgot to put the juice of the lime over the top and I forgot to garnish. I know, I cant believe it either. Pick up your jaw and work with me here.
The taste of the meat was delish all the same. I can only imagine the burst of freshness the lime and cilantro would have added. I was so disappointed when I realize I had forgot two important ingredients. But it was after we ate, so it was just to late.
The day has melted into the night.
