For our first velntines as the Reeses we stayed in and had a romantic dinner. We also lucked out and found Zoe's favorite lost mouse! So she had a great valentines as well!
We had a pot roast with vegetables and strawberry shortcakes for dessert. Recipes below!
Easy Crock Pot Roast
Salt and Pepper
1 1/2 pound pot roast
6 small red potatoes- quartered
15-20 baby carrots
1 sweet onion- sliced, big chunks
2/3 cups water
Put the veggies into the crockpot. Season the roast with Salt and pepper. Go ahead and shake some salt and pepper on the veggies too. Fresh ground pepper is always best 8)
Next, pour the water into the crockpot. Turn on Low and cook for 6 hours. I would recommend opening the crockpot at about 4 hours and spoon some of the liquid over the meat to keep it tender.
Strawberry Shortcakes- also super easy.
Shortcake shells- availble in your local grocery store
Coolwhip- we got chocolate flavored
Slice up the strawberries, put them in a bowl and sprinkle them with sugar. Toss them and put in the refrigerator for a few hours.
About an hour before dessert time, spoon the berries onto the shortcakes. hold off on the cool whip until you are ready to serve! YUMMY!
