 NOTES : You'll love the aroma of this steaming meal when you walk through
 your door after being away for the afternoon. As the meal finishes cooking,
 toss together a spinach salad with blue cheese crumbles, croutons, and
 Italian salad dressing. bake a batch of brown-and-serve rolls, too, if you
 worked up an extra-hearty appetite while away from home.
