This is one of the first recipes I tried from my BH&G Cookbook almost 15 years ago when we were first married (which should be required reading for everyone. . .), and I still love to make it at least a few times each fall, because it's just one of those down-home-makes-you-feel-good kind of meals. It also is a great way to use up some of the leftovers in your fridge after Thanksgiving, and tastes delicious on a chilly fall night!
There's no special tricks to this recipe, just cook it up and enjoy. We had it a few nights ago served up with a loaf of bread and will enjoy the leftovers tomorrow night. (Anyone else have Thursday-Leftover-Night at their house?)
