I found this recipe in a McCall's magazine at least 20 years ago. Every one in the family loves it, so easy to make in the crockpot on a chilly fall day. I lost it and was in a panic as our cool fall days are starting and I wanted to make it. Did a search and shocked to find it. I don't put in the butternut squash, simply because the first time I made it, I didn't have any and didn't want to run to the store. But we love squash so might try it that way today.

This is very easy to make and tastes fantastic when finished! Definitely a comfort food! My husband usually lets me decide what to cook, yet he continually requests this one. I dont care for the pear onions as much so I dont use a full 1.5 cups. My children are so-so about it, but I have a feeling they'll grow into it :) It's a new staple at our house! Thanks!
