I do NOT like the cold and usually find anything I can for warmth & comfort this time of year...and that includes food!! This is the perfect cozy breakfast perfect for a snow day (yeah I said it...have you seen the predictions for the Nor Ester coming to the east coast!) or just any day that you need to warm your insides!
Plus added bonus * its a #crockpotmeal
