Fall Spice Rubbed Tri Tip

About two weeks ago I left for Barcelona on a week-long work trip.  When I headed out the days were warm and the light still had the harshness of the summer sun.  In my rushed state I forgot to line up a friend to water my garden, and figured once I had realized about halfway through the trip that it was no use in calling anyone by then – it was all but inevitable that my garden would be shriveled and dead by the time I got back.  Though when I stepped off the airplane back in LA about a week later (after some severely wrecked travel plans and a vow to never give business to Lufthansa again), the day had the distinct feel of fall in LA (yeah, fall in LA has a distinct feel).  When I got home my garden was still alive and I immediately went to the store and bough a butternut squash as well as other fall produce.

Given a week’s time the fall light is becoming softer, but the temps are back in the 80’s and 90’s – which means as much as I want to move on to soups, stews, and all that good stuff, it’s back to the grill with hunks of meat.  I’m looking for a happy medium.  In so doing, this spice rub is distinctively “spice-y,” which for me puts it a little farther along the fall spectrum.  A transitional meal so to speak.  I served it with a butternut squash and leek soup, as well as a very fall salad, complete with granny smith apples and pomegranate seeds.  As much as I am relishing these warm days and September swells, I am looking forward to that early morning chill in the air that let’s me know the season has turned and it’s on to the next one.
