This last week has been kind crazy! Our lawn mower decided to break in the middle of mowing the lawn. The next day I decided to do a load of wash and our washer was making the worst sound imaginable. Then no joke, the next day I took the kids to the library and couldn't get the car to start until the twenty something time of trying.

I was making dinner and walked into the family room and found Eve like this. I thought it was super cute!

I was just typing this up for a friend. This is one of our favorite recipes and really is easy. Enjoy!
1 package fresh tortellini – it tastes best if it has Italian sausage with chicken in it. We are on a budget so I use frozen tortellini with cheese in it and I think it tastes just as good. **One package of tortellini serves about four people
½ lb. honey ham from the deli
1 cup whipping cream
3 oz. butter (6 tablespoons)
pinch of grated nutmeg
¾ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese – I like Locatelli or Romano cheese
salt and freshly ground pepper
Combine the ham, cream, butter, nutmeg and half the Parmesan cheese in a saucepan and heat slowly. Do NOT boil or the sauce will curdle, season with salt and pepper.
Bring a large pot of salted water (1 tablespoon salt) to boil and cook the tortellini in it until done. Drain. Serve topped with the ham sauce and the remaining Parmesan cheese.
If you use more than one package of tortellini, you will need to double the recipe for the sauce.

The fourth was a relaxing day for us. Ryan studied for boards in the morning and part of the afternoon. I mowed the lawn for the first time without a self propelled mower! It was a workout! Hopefully I can do it more often! In the afternoon we went on a bike ride as a family which was soooo fun! I love to ride bikes! In the evening we went to the Lowes down the street from us and parked there. It was perfect to see the fireworks. We loaded up the bed of Ryan's truck with blankets and pillows. It was so fun! I love the fourth! I like to pick out my favorite fireworks while I watch them. My favorites are the gold ones that look like glitter almost. What are your favorites?
