Tasty Pulled Beef

3-4 lb roast
1 bottle Italian dressing ( I just made mine from a packet)
1 pkg onion soup mix
2-3 cloves garlic, minced

Trim fat off roast, place in crockpot.
Combine dressing and soup mix. Once well combine add minced garlic.
Pour dressing over roast, turning roast to coat with dressing mixture.
Cook on low 8-10 hours. Turning once during cooking time.
Take roast out, and strain juices, reserving juice. ( I even stuck my "juice" in the freezer for a few minutes to get the fat to separate after I strained it) Shred roast with forks and return meat to crockpot. Pour desired amount of juice over meat, I used about a 1 1/2 cups. More or less depending on how juicy you want your meat.

We served it on buns with all the regular condiments. The next day I enjoyed it over rice with tomatoes.

Watermelon Drink

4 cups seedless watermelon cubes
1 cup water
1 Tbsp honey
Lime juice

Put watermelon and water in blender and mix until smooth. Strain into a pitcher; stir in honey and splash of lime juice (to taste). Pour into ice filled glasses and enjoy!

Kind of a fun way to enjoy your watermelon!
