I love to give things away, especially around Thanksgiving and the Christmas Holiday season. It makes me feel good to put a smile on someone’s face. You all know I like to sit on my back porch and partake in the enjoyment of Community Coffee each morning. My friends at Community Coffee sent me one of their holiday blends, Bread Pudding, to sample. The timing was perfect, as my next door neighbor just delivered a fresh bread pudding she made using the Mexican vanilla I brought her from our recent cruise. That little treat, along with the medium-dark roast Bread Pudding blend from Community Coffee hit the spot!
Community Coffee also shared with me the many discount codes and specials they are offering for all of you who are missing that little slice of Louisiana. The Christmas season here is like no other, and I will admit that this year we’re going all out like no other in my household. I plan on checking out the lights in downtown Baton Rouge, enjoy a Papa Noel deal at a New Orleans hotel (complete with a drive through City Park), and even make my way down to Lutcher to see the bonfires being built along the levee. The bonfires are unique to this area and is something one should see at least once in their lifetime. Bonfires are constructed along the Mississippi River levee and they aren’t your normal bonfire either. These are works of art that are lit on Christmas Eve to light the way for Papa Noel.
One item visitors should bring along on any of these outings is a fresh brewed thermos of Community Coffee. To celebrate this season of giving, Community Coffee is providing my readers (you) the chance to sample all of the holiday blends in your own, limited edition holiday tumbler. Just leave a comment with a holiday tradition that makes the holiday season special for you and your family. Once winner will be randomly chosen and I’ll contact you by email to find out where to send this comforting gift. Contest ends at 11:59pm CST this Cyber Monday, November 30, 2009.

Winner Update: Congrats to Cindy Merrill who commented “For the holidays I usually request venison from hunters ( the older the animal, the better) because Venison Mincemeat pies are delicious. I’m not lucky thus far, no hunter has offered me any.”
Cindy, when I was a little girl, my parents would bring me to Simpson, LA to visit my aunt Bonnie. She and her husband are big deer hunters. For breakfast she would make her big fluffy homemeade biscuits and serve them with fried backstrap and some fresh brewed Community Coffee. I hope you get some venison soon and enjoy the holidays with your prize.
