Good Sunday morning, ladies! Welcome to Sunday Mornings at Home.
Sunday Mornings at Home is a weekly lifestyle post featuring different information every week.
Today, we are going in my kitchen for a recipe review…we are going to go in my closet for warm home wear…and we are going to meet a reader in her favorite coat.
I also want to discuss something that came up last week.
So, I hope you have a warm beverage…a cozy spot…with a soft blanket…and are ready to read Sunday mornings at home.
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME: IN THE KITCHEN
This is not just a bowl of plain pasta…though it looks that way!
Allow me to tell you about Mr. B’s favorite foods…pasta, pasta, and pasta.
Because he is a trail runner, he is often able to eat carbs….much more often than I am.
Typically, at home, I cook with Barilla Protein Pasta which has more protein than others.
But, I have been looking for simple pasta recipes that are not as heavy…so he has lighter options.
That was when I happened upon Ina Garten’s Lemon Capellini.
Three ingredients…that is it! So, why not give it a try??
The hardest part of the recipe is taking the time to obtain the Lemon Zest…you do the entire lemon.
But, it is really good…very refreshing and flavorful.
Now, I thought it was better with the addition of fresh grated parmesan on the top of the dishes.
This is easy to have on hand when he says…I want pasta…again, that is often…sigh…the rewards of running.
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME: IN THE CLOSET
First of all, something new! I recently found this gold crossbody at Patricia Nash’s clearance sale.
It is sold out now, but I love this little bag. I new favorite. You can check out more from Patricia Nash Designs at this link.
The day I picked up this bag was a flash sale and it was marked down into the 60s…probably why it moved so quickly.
I have been asked to keep closet diving…here is something I wear at home when the weather is cold.
It is a comfy, oversized, Bryn Walker sweater in green. Just go to Dillard’s and search Bryn Walker for similar looks.
These houndstooth leggings from JJILL in the past are also very warm and comfy. I think these new Fit Breathe Cotton Leggings at JJILL are fun too.
One day I needed to run to the post office, so I put over this my navy peacoat and Love’s Pure Light Scarf.
I felt comfortable to run in and out of the post office, but I would not wear this outfit out of the house for anything else…maybe to fill the car with gas!
Now, meet Sandra, from our blog community.
After my trench coat post this past week, Sandra sent a picture wearing her favorite trench….
She and her husband were visiting Bejing here and she wore her London Fog black trench purchased in 2000.
She says this is still a go to coat for her, and I believe she found it at Dillard’s and recommends their petite department.
I am sorry this picture could not be enlarged…it would have been too blurry.
Thanks for sharing Sandra!
Remember, I would love for you to send home decor, holiday decor, recipes, clothing shots, display shots….all from your world. The audience loves it.
Just send your images to firstname.lastname@example.org.
FASHION NEWS: ON February 14, Apple TV+ will feature a documentary called THE NEW LOOK, the creations of fashion designers are their survival during WWII.
SUNDAY MORNINGS AT HOME: CLARIFICATION ON MY JOY
Yes, my Joy ornaments are packed away again waiting for next year’s Season of Joy.
But, I assure you that my own personal joy is stronger than ever.
Someone questioned that last week…just based on the fact that I was not wearing colorful accessories in recent pictures.
My joy comes first from my relationship with the Lord. And, joy is still one of my style adjectives that I express in many different ways with my clothing.
It might surprise you to learn that I have been more joyful lately than I was at the end of last summer.
I think it is because, I have been forced to sit down longer…have more time for pondering and planning…and move slower with more purpose.
Two foot surgeries will do that. Yes, I am very ready to see the doctor at the end of next week and hopefully hear that the boot can come off.
But, I am grateful that I have had this time to think more…enjoy more time at home…rest…and be thankful for all that I have.
This is helping me to be stronger and I believe helping me to do more for you. And experience more JOY.
No one need be concerned about my joy. I hope you all are experiencing your own joy at high levels going into a new month this week.
Anything you would like to ask about in this edition of Sunday mornings at home? I always love to hear what you are pondering as well.
Make sure this week that you……
STAY STRONG & KEEP SMILING!!

I was encouraged to explain more about my SHOPPING LINKS page and how to use it. (In fact I just added a few new brands to the list)
I am an affiliate for many different brands and when you click on those brands and shop, then I receive a small commission.
This is such an important income for me and my family.
I have tried to include the brands most shopped by this audience, but sometimes I miss one of your favorites.
If you will tell me what you are shopping, then I can tell you if I am affiliate for them and give you that link…if it is not already on the page.
And remember to send your recipes, home decor or street style from where you are with pictures to email@example.com.
Send to email and do not try to put in comments! YOU are the best.
