February 23, 2011...slow cooker time! Today, Lisa started dinner at 8am and let it cook a glorious 10 hours! Well worth the wait.
Looking at the ingredients, I'm not sure why it's so many calories. I actually didn't even have a full serving (which is 1 2/3 cup) and I was full. This is an excellent meal for a cold day not to mention how great the house smells!
