Gooseberry Patch Giveaway!!! Featuring GARFIELD!

*This giveaway is now closed.*

Garfield Party Are you ready to have some fun? Cause I am!

I am SO very excited to be having this giveaway. Why? Because this giveaway contains 3 of my favorite things. Gooseberry Patch, Cooking and GARFIELD!!!

Garfield Cookbook

Hi my name is Kim and I’ve loved Garfield since high school. (Which is a very long time!) Phew, confession is good.

When I heard that Gooseberry Patch was pairing up with Garfield to create a new cookbook I was virtually first in line, waving my hand frantically from my computer, asking to review the new cookbook. As you can see they obliged the slightly obsessed woman that sits here today. But enough about me, let’s talk about the cookbook.

I’ve got little green tabs sticking out all over this cookbook for recipes that I want to try. I’ve already tried 3 of them and they were a hit with the whole family.

Here’s the first one.

Crust-less Breakfast Pie

I believe Garfield was trying to get a taste before it went in the oven.

Before I reveal the next recipe let me show you a few pages from the inside of the cookbook.

Isn’t it fun? Garfield makes his appearance on almost every page.

I LOVE THAT!

Turning each page made me smile….and hungry!

Bachelor-Style Skillet Lasagna

This recipe was quick, easy and delicious. Quite the perfect combination don’t you think? Not to mention it is one of Garfield’s favorite foods.

I also made this one.

Banana-Berry Smoothie, but you’ll have to get the Gooseberry Patch Garfield Recipes with Cattitude cookbook to see that recipe. *wink* It’s on page 99. And yes, those are my vintage Garfield mugs.

If you’re not convinced enough to want this cookbook, then how about a looksie at the table of contents?

BREAKFAST IS SERVED…TIME TO GET UP

FIRST LUNCH, THEN A CATNAP

SNACK ATTACK!

LOTSA LASAGNA PASTA & PIZZA

IT’S DINNER TIME……NOW!!!

DINNER IS OVER….WHAT’S FOR DESSERT?

So is your mouth watering yet? Are ya hankerin’ to get your hands on it? Well if you are then this is what you have to do. I’m using the rafflecopter because I think it makes things easier on you to do it all in one area. I’m all about saving you time. *smile*

If you don’t happen to win or you can’t wait that long, you can always buy it below.

P.S.If you “liked” my FB page I’ll be sharing other giveaways for this cookbook as they become available.

GOOD LUCK!

Kim

  5. It's going to be the Garfield cookbook :) I will be getting one for myself and my son - we were Garfield Fans together :) along with our Siamese cat - it was the only cartoon/tv show she would watch AND "do not disturb" her when she was watching - you'd get a swat for your trouble (I have a pic of her watching :)

  20. I cannot believe there is a Gooseberry Patch Garfield cookbook. My daughter has been collecting Garfield since about the age of 5. She saw him on suctioned cupped to a window and was hooked from that point on. We often search antique stores for anything Garfield. She too has a glass coffee cup. It's amazing how many unique items are out there of Garfield. This cookbook will definitely have to be added to her collection! Thanks for the opportunity to win...and I'm not going to say a word, as she'll get it one way or another as a surprise!
