Slow Cooker Saturday!

Time for Slow Cooker Saturday and I have a yummy one for you all!  This is a recipe I just made for the first time a couple days ago and it was a hit with the whole family.  Now that the weather is starting to cool down my crock pot is going to be my right hand man to get warm soups and stews going around here!  This is a recipe that will not disappoint.
