#ad Community Coffee has compensated me for this post. But all opinions are mine. Recipes and images are compliments of the Blogs listed.
Hotdogs. Hamburgers. Potato Salad. Cole Slaw.
All fabulous foods which have a place on every American table
when we are celebrating our patriotism. But let’s face it – the
real food which makes our hearts and stomachs explode with
anticipation are the desserts. Those fabulously, sweet concoctions
which are generally served after the main meal. Well I say – let’s
embrace that good ole’ American spirit and start a new revolution.
Eat Dessert First. 😀 You will want to eat these first so you have
plenty of room for seconds.
10 Great Patriotic Desserts
As a military family, we love to celebrate all of the Patriotic-based
holidays. We love to have family and friends over for cookouts and
outdoor dinner parties. One of my fave things to do is to create a
Dessert Bar with lots of selections of sweets – from a basic fruit salad to
a red, white and blue cheesecake to homemade cherry hand pies.
This post could not be shared at a better time since May is…
I am proud to be working with Community Coffee in an effort to
give back to our Military members. During the month of May, if
you purchase four bags or boxes of Community Coffee, they will in
turn match that purchase and send a package of eight bags or boxes
of coffee, plus a “Military Match” mug to a service member serving
overseas or within the States.
Also, you can nominate your special Military Member for a special
prize. The #MilitaryMatch contest offers a chance for you to submit
a photo of your favorite active duty military coffee-lover via Instagram
or Twitter with the #MilitaryMatch hashtag and a note on why you
are nominating this individual. The entry will serve as their nomination
of this person to receive 1 Military Match package. The contest runs
through all of May, with the winner being selected on May 31st.
Do you have a special Military Member in mind? Thank you to
Community Coffee for Giving Back to our Troops.
