Hello sweet ladies!
Well.......I have been waiting for some time to show you another one of the new Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks! It is time for another.
I can't wait to tell you about the cookbook.......you are going to like it.... a lot!!!! It is so easy to use. Weeknight Dinners has enough meals for the whole week! Most of the sections have at least 40 recipes in each. Plus all the sweet little illustrations at the bottom.....it never disappoints me with the helpful hints!!!!
Tuesday is Tex-Mex Night
Wednesday is Italian Night
Comfort Food Thursday
Just for Fun Friday
Click on picture.....you can see the sign better!
One winner will receive the Weeknight Dinner's Cookbook and this Wooden Sign!
As many of you know I always like to add a little something else with the cookbook to go with the party. I made up this sign that reads, "May all who enter as guests leave as friends". It says exactly what I feel every time I open up a new Gooseberry Patch Cookbook......go here if you would like to see what they have available!
When I opened up the Weekday Dinners, the part I liked the most was all the interesting new recipes! It is broken up for every day of the week. That makes life a little simpler..... makes it easy to plan your weekly meals also. Each section has at least 40 easy recipes to choose from. You could even let the children help pick out a meal for each day of the week. Then write it on your calendar! Would make a Momma's life much easier!
Since I serve at a college.... in the pizza area, I looked in the cookbook to see if there was any thing I could try on all the kids at the college! I found one called Grandma's Sicilian Pizza submitted by Nancy Julian Alamogordo, NM. I made it up and the kids loved it! Here is the recipe.
Grandma's Sicilian Pizza.
14-1/2 oz. can stewed tomatoes
2 t. garlic, chopped
1 t. dried oregano
1 t. dried basil
2 c. shredded pizza-blend cheese
Garnish: chopped salami, olives, onions, green peppers, green chilies, other toppings
I used fresh grated parmesan on the top of the pizza.
Prepare Pizza Dough; let rise while preparing the sauce. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine undrained tomatoes, garlic and herbs. Bring to boil; cook about 15 minutes, breaking up tomatoes with a spoon. Place Pizza Dough in the center of a greased 15:x10" jelly-roll pan; spread dough out to edges of pan. Spread sauce over dough; add cheese and desired toppings. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes, until edges are lightly golden. Serves 4 to 6.
1-1/3 c. warm water
1 env. active dry yeast
4 c. all-purpose flour
2 T. olive oil
1 t. salt
Heat water until very warm, about 110 to 115 degrees: pour into a large bowl. Add yeast; stir until dissolved. Add flour, olive oil and salt; mix well and let rise about 15 minutes.
Spread sauce over top of dough. Sprinkle cheese on top of sauce.
Add toppings. I sprinkled grated parmesan cheese on the top. Pure Nummmmmnest!
There is another Pesto Chicken Pizza, that I will try this next Wednesday, found in the Wednesday is Italian Night section!
Many of you already feel like Gooseberry Patch is a part of your family. They have been a part of mine for a long time.....loved their catalogs and would never throw one away...ever!!!! If you would ask me how I feel about them.... it would be that they provide in many homes across the world......"HOSPITALITY"! After each cookbook is bought and used in each Home......hospitality just happens naturally! For women that is a sweet thing! Nothing like loving on your family or bringing people inside your home to encourage and bless them. That is happening today. We are having 5 baseball players for dinner. Asked them to church and dinner afterwards. I made up a huge pot of Chicken Tortilla Soup from the Tuesday is Tex-Mex Night section! Oh my is it nummy! I will share the recipe with this next week! It is so so easy to make up!
Well....... I bet you are ready to start the party! Here we go!
