Good morning! I hope that you had a great weekend! I did, for several reasons one of which was that it was the first time since April that we could open the windows. It was heavenly to have the soft breeze scented with freshly mowed grass, the occasional barbecue, and the sounds of crickets and birds waft in and out of the house.

Although summer officially lasts for another week I am already getting ready to “nest” and this week I am going to show you all of the comforts of nesting at home, from food, drinks, throws and more.
This weekend I did experiment with a pumpkin recipe, although I promised myself that I would wait I could not resist. Pumpkin is one of my favorite things to eat and in the Fall much to the annoyance of my husband I try to put it into everything.

I made Pumpkin Tortellini and it was scrumptious; a creamy sauce with a hit of nutmeg and sage, the perfect accompaniment to cheese tortellini. The pumpkin taste is subtle, almost indistinguishable when mixed with the spice and the cheese so if you are not a huge fan of savory of pumpkin dishes you should try this recipe because you just might like it or frankly not even know it is there.
In addition to pumpkin tortellini I find comfort on a cool day in chili’s, soups, pasta’s and more. After all doesn’t a warm meal on a cool day make everyone smile?
