Mimi Avocado and Friends’ Ultimate Summer Ice Cream Giveaway!

| 35 Comments

Maple CreemieIt’s summertime and guess where I am?   Vermont!  Today is one of the most perfect summer days I have seen in a long time…so my mother, daughter, and I drove out to the Bragg Farm in East Montpelier to get a Maple Creemee.   If you are ever traveling in Vermont, be sure to sample the maple soft serve ice cream (in local vernacular it’s called a “creemee”).   It wouldn’t be summer in Vermont without maple creemees! Birthday-Dinner-Collage-2014 Last night we celebrated my birthday (which doesn’t officially happen until later this week).  It was very special to have 2 of my siblings,  my sister’s  husband, one niece, one daughter AND my mother here …plus our wonderful neighbors and their grandson.  It was a real old-fashioned 4th of July party with fireworks in the yard.   In Vermont we can buy and shoot off fireworks  (with a permit) and there were beautiful bursts of color appearing on the distant hillsides as other families enjoyed their celebrations…plus millions of fireflies out in the field! Fireworks-Collage I was so happy when some of my San Diego food blogging friends asked if I would like to participate in a giveaway …it’s the perfect way to celebrate a BIG BIRTHDAY (any guesses?)  by giving a gorgeous Kitchenaid Mixer to one of you.   Scroll down for the details…I hope you enter!   I would LOVE it if one of my readers could win this beautiful prize package!   Click on the link at the bottom of this post:  “a rafflecopter giveaway” to enter !   What kinds of ice cream will you make if you win?   How about making your own maple creemee?  I’d love to try that! Kitchenaid-Giveaway-Graphic I’m excited to be partnering with other San Diego Food Bloggers to offer this wonderful summer giveaway to our readers. Win a 5-quart chrome finish KitchenAid mixer with the specialty ice cream attachment, and a copy of the ultimate ice cream book, David Lebovitz’s The Perfect Scoop: Ice Creams, Sorbets, Granitas, and Sweet Accompaniments.
