Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I usually add way more vegetables. Broccoli is good. More carrots etc. The dill pickles are awesome.
I always make a huge batch and freeze it.
This recipe came from Nan Mosely and Rose Balcom when we used to volunteer for the 'Out of the Cold' program in Midland...many moons ago.
