PARTY CLOSED........until next time! 


Hello sweet ladies!!!!!!!!!!


Okay.......this is a little update later in the day on Saturday......I will explain why I am back here.  While I was putting up the post today.....I grabbed the wrong cookbook for the giveaway...........and took the picture and then put up a different Butterscotch Bar recipe then what I had made....(it looked different from the one I had made at the college, but just thought I was tired)......yup....leave it to me. The real cookbook was suppose to be......... 



Gooseberry Patches 10th Anniversary Edition

All I can say is LIFE happens here on our farm!!!!!!!! We will have two winners....

Either...

Meals in Minutes
or
Rush-Hour Recipes.

1st winner 
will receive the cookbook of her choice and the apron.

2nd winner 
will receive the remaining cookbook.

I am so so sorry for the mix up.....but it has made the party a little more exciting!!!!!!! Right? 

March 31 thru April 11th
sign up over at noon (central time)

It's time............for a 

Prairie Flower Farm
&
Gooseberry Patch Party!!!!!!!!  

It is time for another

One of my favorite things to do!!!!!

I am so excited to tell you what Gooseberry Patch has been up to. Of course it is another cookbook that is full of lots of wonderful fast recipes and those helpful little hints at the bottom of each page. I just love to read those!

A toasty touch for soups! butter bread slices and cut into shapes using mini cookie cutters. Heat on a baking sheet at 425 degrees until crisp and then garnish filled soup bowls before serving.


The Gooseberry Patch Cookbook is called........
(go here to buy, if you would like)
the cover is beautiful don't cha think?

The contents.........

5 Ingredients Favorites
One Dish Dinners
Slow Cookers to the Rescue
Soup's On
Make-A-Meal Sides
Speedy Potluck & Party Foods

The first recipe I made was for the college kids. 
Old-Fashioned Butterscotch Bars........EASY!

Old-Fashioned Butterscotch Bars
1/2 c. butter melted and slightly cooled
2 c. self-rising flour
1-3/4 c. brown sugar, packed
2 eggs, beaten
1 tea. vanilla extract
1 c. chopped pecans
Garnish: powdered sugar

In a large bowl, combine melted butter, flour, brown sugar and eggs; mix well. Stir in vanilla and pecans. Spread in a 13"x9" baking pan sprayed with non-stick vegetable spray.Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center tests clean. Cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar and cut into bars. Makes about 2 dozen.......you have to have a glass of milk with these.......they are delicious!!!!!

I didn't put in the pecans, so many kids are alergic to nuts at the school.

This recipe is a must try.......you will like......make some up for a shut in.......that would make their day!

Now you know I love to have these parties and I love to also have a little giveaway to go with the Recipe books. I have been stitchin' on a new little apron for the celebration. You can wear it in your kitchen, garden, a sewing apron, as you are working on your crafts or any way you would like.


My little Prairie Flower Girl with a Girlie! 



The apron has 4 different size pockets you will find useful.  I will have a pattern later, just not enough time in my day!

  23. Hmmmmmm, what do I do in my spare time. I don't have any, since I fill my time with a parttime job I enjoy, volunteer works of all types and lots and lots of time with my grandchildren. I do love painting (folkart) and crochet. I have been a follower of your blog for a couple of years and find it uplifting, informative, and enjoyable. I left you a fb note and one for Gooseberry Patch too. Thanks for the giveaway, sign me up please! Blessings on your day. I have a trying day coming up April 4th, keep me in your prayers.

  40. I love to take pictures and cook! So this party/giveaway is perfect for me! Love the apron, I am a big apron wearer. And not many of my friends wear them or have them so they all think it's something for "older" people. Guess I'm "older" at heart then because I adore aprons. Thanks for offering the giveaway!

    Then on to Facebook to say hi.

  47. Hello Sweet ladies.........look at all you precious ladies!!!!!!!!! I have a funny to tell you..........this morning I was up very very early so I could finish up the apron, get the pic's taken and the post up before 1 today. Anyway I had the wrong cookbook next to me........yup, I grabbed it......took it outside to take a picture with the apron.......WRONG COOKBOOK! I was suppose to have one called Meals in Minutes. Sooooo this is what I am doing. I am giving both of the cookbooks away. The first winner will receive the cookbook of her choice with the apron. The second lady will receive the cookbook that the first winner didn't choose. Oh man.......can life be hard or what. At least it made the party a little more exciting!!!!!!!

    Thank you so much for all who have come and signed up for the party!!!!!! You are so so sweet!!!!!!! Hugs to your day! Linda

  56. Linda,
    You have added such joy to my life since I discovered your blog and subscribed! Just thought you'd like to know that!

    I just love to cook, and every other week I cook for a group of 25...always looking for easy inexpensive recipes, and the gang always loves comfort food (don't we all).

    The apron reminds me of my beloved mum...she ALWAYS wore an apron, and as a young teen I enjoyed making them for her. When I grew up and got married I didn't wear an apron (although I certainly should!) and yours makes me want to wear them again. So pretty and feminine!

    I'm heading over to the Gooseberry Patch facebook page now! Stay blessed!

  118. Hi Linda --

    I am so tickled to enter another of your parties. You have made it so special by stitching the apron too. You are such an inspiration to me for all that you accomplish and how you encourage others.

    In my spare time (there isn't much) I love to embroider, crochet, sew, and do counted cross stitch. I will often do these crafts for gifts. Gives me a way to enjoy my favorite crafts and produce a cherished gift at the same time.

    Thanks again for the party. Have a splendid day!

  125. Hi Linda! You always have the "best" parties! I love Gooseberry Patch, cookbooks and aprons - so this is the best of both worlds! Hmm, something about myself - I am blessed to work as a secretary for my church. In August I will be married to my high school sweetheart for 27 years. I hope you are having sunshiney weather today like we are in Lancaster, PA. :-)
    Blessings,

  169. It is still chilly here in the Northeast corner of Pa...but the daffodils never fail to bring a smile. I had an all white duck when I was a little girl. I read to him and he would do his low quackle and pick at my shoelaces. I'm an avid reader to this day..but to noone but myself. :-)
