Recipe by stanzacp

This is a recipe from the fix-it and forget-it cookbook that I would like to try. It was converted for the crockpot by the author, Phyllis Pellman. It sounds like you could do a lot with it. As written, it is supposed to work best in a 6 quart crockpot. When I make it, I plan on substituting chicken base for the bouillon and adding some celery seed.
