After a hard day of exploring the "Oregon Outback," and working lots of stations using the ham radio gear in my truck, when I got back to the motel where I was staying, all I wanted to do is to down a few brewskies, surf the Internet, and relax.  However, radio and exploring make for a huge appetite, but I didn't feel like going to a sit-down restaurant - heck, I didn't even feel like crossing the street - but I was in luck, as Raley's supermarket, along with their fantastic deli, was located next door to the motel.  So it was a simple matter to drag my weary bones next door, and head straight for the deli.

Photo:  Raley's parking lot was surprisingly empty on this late Saturday afternoon, perhaps because the majority of the citizens were attending the rodeo.

The deli wasn't difficult to located, as all I had to do is walk in the door nearest to the motel, look to the right, and behold!  The deli!  It's big and features a glass deli case arranged in the shape of an "L."  Each leg is probably about 40 feet long, so there's plenty of space to hold every variety of deli item under the Winnemucca sun - the place has a seemingly endless selection.  The store even has Raley's famous wok, but I was in the mood for a sandwich, so I headed to the sandwich case and ordered a tri-tip sandwich, paid for it, and headed out the door back to my motel to enjoy my feast.

Photo:  This rodeo attendee looked quite surprised when I snapped this photo of the deli counter, showing a small portion of the vast array of food offered.  On rodeo weekend in Winnemucca, practically everybody dresses western.

Raley's tri tip sandwich features a generous helping of tri tip roast, cut thin and cooked to perfection.  The foundation of the sandwich is a grilled ciabatta roll, and is topped with melted Cheddar cheese, sliced tomatoes and organic spring greens.  Condiments were simple, as the roll was buttered on both sides; nothing else was needed.  At $4.95 it's not cheap, but you get what you pay for, and this sandwich was worth every penny of the asking price.

Photo:  This is what the best tri-tip sandwich I've ever eaten looks like.  You just gotta love it!

The meat was cooked perfectly, the cheese was melted and gooey, the garnishes were snappy fresh, and the roll was fresh and toasted to perfection. It was assembled perfectly, custom made for me, and conveniently sliced in two pieces for easier eating, and easier photography. The sandwich was simply delicious... and it made the perfect dinner for me.
