Crockpot time!

Hubby get’s emails daily from Food Network or my recipes.com with the recipe of the day. Some days he prints them out and I will find a stack of recipes sitting by our printer.  Sometimes the recipes make it out to the kitchen counter or thrown in the drawer next to the cookbooks.  And then some make it quickly to our kitchen dinner table.  This recipe was one of those.  
We love the crockpot recipes because it is so nice to come home and have dinner already for you.  Not to mention how wonderful the house smells.  And this recipe is so easy- no browning of the meat.  Just mix it all together and turn the crock pot on!  Big tip- use the crockpot liners!  Easy cleanup!
