This is another of my slow cooker, made for working gals recipe. You can put everything together (except mixed veggies) in a disposable slow cooker bag the night before, and on your way out the door in the AM, throw filled bag in your slow cooker, cover and cook. When you get home, throw in the frozen mixed veggies, and make a green salad. This was recently entered in the Lea and Perrins contest for the Food Network
