One of my favorite ways to cook is using my slow cookers. I use them all year round. I really like having a meal waiting for me when I've been busy all day. Also the variety of dishes that can be prepared using a slow cooker is endless. They are the best inventions of modern times. This recipe was from an old Better Homes and Garden cookbook with a few minor tweaks. Have fun with it and enjoy.
