December has arrived … our days are numbered (for holiday shopping that is)

Ferrisburgh Vermont Retail Store .... come visit!!

Well, December has arrived but so far the snow in Vermont has not.  I know, I know, some Vermonters think that is a good thing (are they true Vermonters, I ask)   But if it is going to be cold, I much prefer to see the white stuff in abundance.

One thing has arrived, however, and that the gift giving season.  Again, for some, the chaos of the season is overwhelming. But I always think it is a wonderful time of year to say thank you to those you appreciate, love, admire, value and enjoy.  Gifts from the heart, no matter what size, are treasured.  As we all know, “It is the thought that counts”.  So I offer up some suggestions of holiday cheer … from a pint of maple syrup to a gift of a  bacon, sausage and pancake breakfast; from a brick of cheddar cheese to a snack basket full of summer sausage, crackers, and mustards;  from a  small spiral petit ham to a full on bone-in maple-glazed, cob-smoked spiral ham for an amazing holiday meal.  Receiving a gift from Dakin Farm is always a special occasion.  From the moment the package arrives until the food is enjoyed the quality and good taste is evident.  It’s a gift that provides a warm holiday message of home, family, and tradition.  That you can count on!  And you won’t have to worry that your gift will be re-gifted since chances are it will be devoured with in a few day’s time.

Just throwing out another thing that arrives in December.  Yes, for the college student that is EXAMS.  So another thought … a Dakin Farm Care Package … perhaps some pepperoni, cheese, and crackers for that midnight snack attack.  Or perhaps Dakin Farm’s Mac ‘n Cheese for a “no brainer” meal while hitting the books.  Just say’n … should you choose to send a Dakin Farm care package … be prepared to be “THE FAVORITE”  Mom, Dad, Aunt, Uncle, Grandparent, Friend … EVER!!  (well, until the word gets out and someone trys to upstage you)

So as you contemplate the “who” and the “what” of the holidays, think of Dakin Farm.  Send a Taste of Vermont … and then, come visit … and bring the snow with you!  Ho Ho Ho.

    Tonight I toasted pecans in a pan and then drizzled a little maple syrup over them and let them caramelize.
