this recipe has been in my family for my entire live. It is easy to make, easy to take, and most importantly easy to double, triple and so on. Does well in a crock pot, slow cooker or on the stove top. My grandma used to make a huge batch of this every time a family member moved so we would have food to feed the people helping us move!
