Happy Beef Giving
Wow, time seems to go a little faster every year! It wasn’t even a full 24 hours after Halloween this year before I saw my first Christmas lights. Maybe we are just ready to be in celebration mode….after all, the elections went well- right? But, in the words of my favorite ventriloquist character Maclovio, “Wait….I’m not ready!” I’m not ready for fighting through crowds, standing in long lines while watching somebody’s child slobber all over the 5 Hour Power I was just about to buy to help me through the travesty of holiday shopping.
Then, is what you are buying the person really going to mean that much to them? Will they remember the heated hand warmers came from you because you thought they’d by nifty while duck hunting this season? Or, will they just end up as some trinket in a junk drawer never to be used? Seriously, I will never be caught using that shake weight, or hideous man bag that someone once bought me as Christmas gifts. Yes, it’s nice to be thought of, but this year if you are going to go to the effort of purchasing a Christmas gift then why not make it special?
What says “special” in a world where we already have too much stuff? Really, if you’re anything like me if you don’t start making some room you might have to consider opening your place up to an episode of American Pickers before the county steps in. (Mike and Frank….if you are reading this I have some great oil cans I’d be willing to part with for letting me use one of your Indian motorcycles to take Danielle out on a ride!) I find the most special moments for me are often times gathered around with family and friends sharing meal. What’s the perfect way to help someone create that special occasion memory, or tell them just how much you appreciate them being in your life? Why, a holiday delivery of nutritious, amazingly tender, and nutritious Certified Hereford Beef would surely let somebody know just how much they mean to you and how much you care. This holiday season make an order through our friends at L&C Meats for a holiday gift box of Hereford beef that is sure to be the most cherished gift of the year for anyone.
Hereford Beef is the perfect gift for anybody. Take for example the business person by day and cave man by night persona like myself. For me, (and I’m dropping a hint here to any friends) the holiday box of rib-eyes are perfect for celebrating (surviving) those long days at the office. Nothing says winner like grilling your own rib-eye, pouring a tall cool frosty beverage, and saying goodbye to the day with every flavorful bite (a meal so good that I actually turn off ESPN just to let the atmosphere of that steak take over).
Not shopping for the cave man? No worries- try L&C’s strip steaks for those yoga/crossfit, has to be “natural and lean” or nothing connoisseur’s. They will appreciate you recognizing their commitment and embrace the thought of you caring as they make their strip steak salads and 21 meals for the week on Sunday evening.
But wait LB, I am shopping for a vegan! Have no fear! We have the perfect solution for that person, too! Remember we’re all sinners, and we can all use a little guidance back to the path from time to time. If you follow this blog you know the benefits of beef in a nutritious healthy lifestyle. Believe it or not, more and more vegans are giving up their non-animal protein ways and returning to the meat eaters we are meant to be. However, you have to broach this subject delicately as it’s something they have to come to on their own. I have seen Dr. Pepper and Candy Crush addicts accept intervention easier than vegans opening up about their no meat choice, so tread easier than a wiley-eyed green broke colt riding past their first rattlesnake, or things could go south faster than Wendy Davis’s bid for Texas Governor. You have to know your target audience, but I’d suggest Googling, “Why I started eating meat again.” The search will find you an example of every type of vegan that’s converted back to meat, and why they made the difficult decision. I will let you guess which one is my favorite. But, I’d print out the article you choose and mail with your Christmas card. Then when the L&C Christmas package shows up have the card read, “Just in case you were thinking about changing.” Be sure and let us know of any success stories!
Do not get caught up in the commercialism and forget the spirit of the holiday season. Remember, it’s about being around the ones that we love, being thankful for them and our blessings, and enjoying each other’s company. Life is too short, so make an impression and a memory that you and others will cherish. Certified Hereford Beef and L&C Meats are happy to help you make this year’s holidays a success. But, whatever you choose for your celebrations remember to tell the ones you love that you love them, never miss an opportunity to catch up with friends, and be thankful for the blessings in your life.
