I really loved that this was a Crock Pot recipe, so I didn't have to think about it all day, which was great because I had a busy day. I served this with Wheat Rolls (store-bought, I'm not a bread maker-typically) and butter and it was delicious! Perfect for the fall weather I'm pretending we're having.
