The traditional Anza Days kick-off dinner was served July 2 at the Community Hall and featured to-go meals prepared by Hall board members and willing volunteers. Sponsored by the Anza Community Hall Building Inc., the dinners boasted large portions of slow-cooked tri-tip, baked beans, corn, a roll with a pat of butter, and a juicy slice of watermelon.Jeff Miller was the star of the show, roasting the tender, perfectly cooked tri-tip roasts on a grill outside the Hall. The Friends Uniting Neighbors Group donated the meat.“About a month ago, Dan Robinson asked if I would cook tri-tip for the Anza Days Kickoff Dinner,” Miller said. “I have never cooked a tri-tip before, so I was off to Home Depot to buy a new BBQ with five burners plus a side burner.”[gallery td_select_ga
