The american dream and status quo is overrated...and sometimes just plain wrong. our lives, our family, our careers, our faith are all now filtered through a new lens-- thank you Jesus. welcome to our crazy. feel free to take some of it with you, we have plenty to go around.

valentine's day! plus a prize!


so for valentine's day....we are hanging out at home, about to watch a movie.  last night we watched a movie...started it too late, and ridge and i couldn't stay awake.


before we started watching a movie last night, i got today's lunch in the crock pot....

roast beef....with potatoes and carrots.  the...THE meal my mom made seemingly every sunday (i know mom, it wasn't every sunday)....THE meal i hated.  THE meal i said i would NEVER make (and rarely do)...but today, that's what we will have.  and it turned out wonderfully; the roast is falling apart- the only way i like it....and the potatoes and carrots are done but not TOOOOOO overdone.  of course, in the picture, everything is still totally raw.

i also made dessert....

and my question for you....for those of you who have NOT already been revealed the ....what kind of pie is this (if you've been told the answer by myself or b-dawg...please don't tell the answer to those around you!!!)?  if you want to play along, comment with your answer or send it to first person to guess correctly....wins either a free pair of earrings OR 15% off a necklace on my website. 

happy valentine's day to you!

Rhubarb would be my guess but since it's already been said, I'll guess strawberry.

I guess strawberry lemonade pie. I have no idea.

your roast looked awesome. I have never tried one but i love them, probably b/c my mom made them every sunday also.

Michelle said...

How about a peach pie.

Strawberry Rhubarb?...if so, I may have to pay you to make one for my dad. It is his favorite! Whatever it was, it looked yummy!
