Gooseberry Patch/Prairie Flower Farm Party!!!!!

Hello Sweet Ladies,

Notice my little chicks on the left side of this picture.....their Momma hatched them this last week....just for me! Sweetness!

IT IS TIME FOR A 

Gooseberry Patch & Prairie Flower Farm Giveaway Party

July 24th - August 4th

Another Review for Gooseberry Patch........now you know me......it is one of my favorite things to do! Especially when I get to show you something new from Gooseberry Patch, they are the sweetest! Are they not some of our favorite ladies? Plus "YOU" also make our parties sooooo much fun!

Okay......now let's begin. I have really enjoyed going through 

the "New Gooseberry Patch101 Breakfast & Brunch Recipes Cookbook. Looking at their wonderful recipes......and so many are healthy for you!
Beautiful pictures too. I will show you this next week and a half different recipes I am trying so you can try them also. 


This morning I made this for my sweet man........he said it was Real Good! We have so many farm fresh eggs here on the farm, so I thought it would be nice to start out with an egg recipe! Very easy to do.

Farmers' Market Omelet
2 t. olive oil
1 slice bacon, diced
2 T. onion, chopped
2 T. zucchini, diced
5 cherry tomatoes, quartered
1/2 t. fresh thyme, minced
3 eggs, beaten
1/4 c fontina cheese, shredded

Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon and onion; cook and stir until bacon is crisp and onion is tenter. Add zucchini, tomatoes and thyme. Allow to cook until zucchini is soft and juice from tomatoes has slightly evaporated. Lower heat to medium and stir in eggs. Cook, lifting edges to allow uncooked egg to flow underneath. When eggs are almost fully cooked, sprinkle with cheese and fold over. Serves one. 

I had some bananas and pineapple, so I made up this drink. Very good. I put ice in the drink when I blended it and made it kind of slushy. 

Feel-Good Shake
2 bananas, sliced
2 c. milk
2 c. none-fat vanilla yogurt
1 cup. pineapple juice ( I used the pineapple also)
1 T. honey
Process all ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Pour into a tall glass. Serve immediately. Makes one serving.

If you want to buy the 
Gooseberry Patch 101 Breakfast & Brunch Recipes  Cookbook now, you can go HERE......

I always like to add a little something to go with the drawing, so I made what I call my

Farmgirl Lunch or Craft Bag 

I have had so much fun making it so that it has my touches. It is not my design, but I do have permission to make it. If you would like to make one for yourself, go to my PINTERST TUTORIALS
for the pattern. I made it a little different then Ayumi, (the designer) made hers. I can help you, if you want to make it like mine. Just email me at prairie flower farm at g mail dot com 
This will go with the cookbook.

Then I thought..........I had been working on a new pattern and if I had time I should throw a second prize in. I finished it this morning!

Farmgirl Chick Tea Towel

I will be having a pattern for $3.00 and a kit available with everything you would need to make the tea towel. If you might be interested, I will have it up tomorrow. I kind of ran out of time today! Smile. I did a fun technique with the scallop.......really easy and fun! I could see curtains made this way!

So this is my first review.....I hope you have enjoyed the party so far.......I will be doing some other fun things throughout this next week and a half.....stay with!!!!! 

So... First prize is the 
The beautiful New Gooseberry Patch 101 Breakfast & Brunch Recipes 
&
Farmgirl Lunch/Craft Bag 

Second Prize is the
Farmgirl Chick Tea Towel

  30. Good day Linda, I love the bag and the tea towel! They are super sweet!
    1. I would have to say I don't have a favorite part about your blog because what I love about it most is all the things I can look forward to seeing here and the comfort in the Lord I know will be here to encourage me. :) You are awesome!
    2. I am a faithful follower :)
    3. I left you a comment on facebook.
    4. I left Gooseberry a comment as well.

    My poor hen that I had thought got pecked on by another chicken actually had got tangled up with a racoon. I am happy to report that even with a hole in the back of her neck :( my husband and I have been able to nurse her back to good health the last couple weeks. I'm saddened though that when we let her out in the yard with the other hens, they were mean to her. I guess it will take time to get to know eachother again.

    Hope all is great on your farm! Have a blessed day!

  34. The lord first (always first) and def the recipes second. I use to work 50 hour weeks and got hurt Had a surgery go bad and now disabled. It took me many hours of rehabilitation to get me back on my feet and walking the little I can. So now my new love is baking and cooking. I sit in a office chair in my kitchen and roll all over and bake whatever I want.

  35. Hi! Left a message on Facebook and leaving a message here! The bag is adorable! I love it! I don't have my own kitchen just now, though I would certainly love the tea towel for my future kitchen. I'll be moving in the next few weeks. :-)

  43. First off, I love the friendship that you so willingly extend to people that you have never met. I love being able to see God work through you, from your work you do at the college, the joy you get out of His creation and through the teaching of His principles to your sweet family. I love hearing about all of your sweet "chicks". Being a first time Mom of 16 chickens has been surprisingly fun. I appreciate your love of home and family. I like the "homey" feel of your blog and facebook page. I could go on and on and on!!!! Thanks so much for sharing.

  64. I just love to read your blog. I try to every morning just to see what is happening on your farm. I think you are the reason that we now have 6 chickens - yours are so personable. I would love to win either prize but I'll be happy for whom ever does. It's hard for me to say which is my favorite part of your blog that I love, but I do love recipes and crafts, but also the pictures of the animals are wonderful. This is the closest that I get to a farm. Have a wonderful week.

  87. Oh, Linda, what a nice party and giveaway! Of course I would love to win that book and the bag as well. You are such a talented designer and artist.

    It's hard to say what I love most about your blog. Probably your sweet Christian testimony would be at the very top of the list, because it's surely your walk with God that makes the rest of your blog the blessing that it is. Thanks for being willing to serve the Lord in this way by sharing your life and testimony with so many ladies! You probably won't know until you get to heaven how many ladies you encouraged and pointed to the Lord.

You & all the ladies are understanding, give comfort when we need it, pray together, care about each other even though we don't even know one another and reading blog posts leaves me with a good feeling inside knowing that someone is praying for what I requested. GOD is living inside each & every one of us and I think HE is using your blog as a tool. Love to you all and God Bless. MaryJane...ciao4now64 at yahoo dot com.

  109. Love your blog and follow you on facebook. I grew up on a farm but now only dream of it. Thats what I like best about your blog is getting to visualize that dream. I live on nearly a half acre which is more than most and do my best to "pretend" I live on a farm. I have a small garden and hope to have a bigger one next year. We are allowed three chickens ( no roosters) so as soon as I can build a coop I plan on getting hens too. Thanks so much for your inspiration and uplifting notes they are very appreciated!

    I love everything about your blog, but I especially like your honesty. I love the way you encourage us in the Lord. It's a comfort to know that other sisters in Christ have hard days too. It helps me to have the right perspective on things. I love the crafts and sewing projects you share with us. You are a blessing to me, and you constantly point me to the goodness of God. Thank you for another fun party.

  171. In my life, I like to put God 1st, Family & Friends 2nd, Country 3rd, and with God 1st he will put everything else in order to our liking. That is how great my God's love is :)
    Also that is what I like about your blog, God, Family & Friends,and the way our sisters in the Lord have come together with prayer for each other and our country thru your blog. I do support missions alot but am so grateful we have somewhere to meet each other right here in America thru your blog.
    A little about myself; I love to quilt and sew.
    I have a little farm in WV and love my farm animals. I also garden and love canning and doing for my family. I could go on and on.
    I also love love love your pictures. I take pictures of my hens and their egggs because I think they are beautiful.

  174. Oh Linda, how can I pick one thing I love about Prairie Flower Farm? Seriously. I enjoy everything about it, but most that it comes from your heart. And you are so real. You are like a girlfriend I can go to when I need encouragement, have a question about gardening, want to try a new recipe, or just a smile. God is using you in amazing ways and I am glad to walk this journey with you - even though we've never met. Blessings!
