Default Trader Joes tri tip

They just built a Trader Joes that's on my way home from work.

I have never really been in one, thought it was yuppie, trendy, whatever.

But I have been slowly checking it out, they do have some different decent stuff there, why I have been going back is because of their charcoal

Well today I discovered their fresh meat dept, honestly I did not think they had one but its pretty interesting.

I saw tri tips. Now I know about the tri tip hype, I used to buy tri tips years ago, but I remember them being a lot bigger, maybe 5-6 lbs, I dont know.

Anyway, I decide to buy one. We are going to our cabin this weekend for a quick trip and I thought it would be cool to make it for the wife and I.

Its small. about 1.5 lbs, $6.99 lb from what I have been reading lately this is the going rate.

When I got it home, I was looking at and it said "product of Australia". Really? that seems so strange to me!!! Cant they just get them in the US?

I am sure its fine and will be great, just shocked the hell out of me

thats all...

thanks
