There's no place like home.

There's no place like home.
Home is where my husband and I reside; wherever that may be.

Fall cooking and good eating.

I am a soup person.  That's not to say that I am soupy (I don't cry remember) or that it is all I eat, I like everything.  I am a soup person because making and consuming soups of all kinds is to me the most loving and comforting thing I can do to feed my family.  When the kids were little my son, Adam, (who is not a soup person) once asked me, "When can we have a normal meal?" Adam is definitely a meat and potatoes man.

Last week a friend shared a recipe that she had found online.  When I saw it I knew that both Doug and I would be adding it to our list of favorites.

Unfortunately I printed the recipe without the name but here it is.

Ingredients:
1 (19oz) bag of frozen cheese tortellini
1 small bag of fresh spinach
2 (14.5 oz) cans of Italian style diced tomatoes, drained
1 block (8oz) of cream cheese (softened)
1 lb of ground sausage (I used some leftover cooked chicken)
3-4 cups of chicken broth (start with 3, add 1 more if it looks like it needs it)

Brown the sausage and put all ingredients in crockpot, chunking up the cream cheese.
Cook on low for 4-6 hours.

Serves 4-6
Keep an eye on your tortellini, it may get done sooner.
If still soupy, leave lid off for the last half hour or so of cooking.
For a Friday version omit the sausage and use vegetable broth.
