Jeanne's notes for this recipe:
This was one of my mother-in-law's recipes and I just loved it. Of course she didn't even own a crock pot so everything was done "old school". I adapted her recipe to a crock pot version and it turns out similar to hers. Of course nobody can cook like or mothers and mother-in-laws but my husband let this pass. ;)
