The Way Texans Do Christmas

December 4, 2009 at 8:15 am 59 comments

(Christmas is rapidly approaching and so is my Blogiversary (January 5). In honor of these two wonderful dates, I’ll be hosting WEEKLY giveaways throughout December and the majority of January. Each Friday I’ll post the new giveaway. You’ll have until the following Wednesday to enter and then I’ll announce the winner on Friday with the next giveaway. I hope you enjoy these fantastic products and keep them in mind for your Christmas shopping or List of Things I Really Want to Give Chelsea!)


Christmas shopping can be hard.

Some people are just too hard to shop for.

They have everything.

Seriously, everything.

But suppose you know a person like this who has everything.

And suppose this person is someone big.

Someone strong.

Someone who likes to workout.

And eat.

If you know someone like this who has everything and likes to eat, like really ENJOYS eating…

like my brother…

then do not fret!

Just go to this little site here. (<- That’s a link.) Click there to find a great Christmas gift for your big, strong brother who likes to eat. You can buy him a ribeye. A big 22 oz ribeye that even he can’t handle. And he’ll love you forever and you’ll do a happy dance because you’ve pleased the beast but spent less than $20!

Or spend $49 and get a whole lot more! (Which is what I plan to do. I can’t publish this post without giving my brother his very own cooler of meat for Christmas. That would be cruel.)

They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach… and I agree. BUT why is that exclusive to men?? There are a lot of people who are reached through their stomachs. Your aunt, your cousin, your neighbor, your fellow blogger named Chelsea, your coworker’s cousin, your pastor’s wife’s childhood friend. I understand this. Do you understand this? Green Grass Meats understands this. They love you and they want you to love them back. So they’d like to give you a Christmas gift!

The Goods:
Family Night
2 Tenderloin Filets
2 T-Bones
1 Brisket
1 lb. Stew Meat
1 lb. Ground Beef

Now the good (Texan) folks at Green Grass tell me this is a $49 value. Not true. It is $49 if you buy the Family Night package, but if you were to buy each of those things individually, you’d realize that it is actually a $104.93 value! I know, the majority of us are poor and could never afford a $19.99 filet… but you get TWO in this Family Night.. Plus so many other goods.

So here’s how you win. The contest begins…. now! It closes on Wednesday, December 9 at midnight. I’ll announce the winner next Friday. I’ll hook you up with the friendly people at GGM and they’ll mail you your delicious prize in a nicely packed cooler with dry ice. I got some of my own goods a few months ago and they stayed frozen, even in this Texas heat! There are many, many ways to enter so listen carefully. (For each entry, leave a new comment.)

1 entry – Just leave a regular ol’ comment. Tell me how excited you are about this giveaway. Or tell me about someone who has everything. Or just tell me you love me.

1 entry – Blog about this giveaway. (Leave me the link to that post.)

1 entry – Tweet about this giveaway. (Leave me the link… I don’t tweet but apparently I can still read yours… or something.)

1 entry – For the non-Tweeters, you can Facebook it. I suppose you can Facebook it even if you are a Tweeter.

1 entry – Add my button to your side bar. Make sure that it links back to my blog. (Sorry, the code doesn’t work so you have to save it as a jpg and add my URL when you upload it. The jpg can be found on my sidebar… or right here, for your convenience!)

See that! FIVE ways to enter! Good luck!

    I love you and I love meat. Therefore, this might be your finest blog post ever!

    (Yay giveaways!)

  • 2. Lyndsey  |  December 4, 2009 at 9:43 am

    I love you! And I am pretty sure I could love green grass meat. And I LOOOOOVE larua’s nursery.

  • 3. Ginger  |  December 4, 2009 at 9:59 am

    Who wouldn’t love free meat for the holidays!? Seriously, that looks like a great deal, and it’s awesome of you to hook someone up like that!!

    And see, if you had a Twitter, I could Tweet at you, which would link to your blog, and would drive more hits! That’s actually why I have Twitter; it’s like an encouraged form of stalking! I will still tweet your giveaway though!

  • 4. Kaitlynn  |  December 4, 2009 at 10:04 am

    mmmmmm meat…… I’m a Nebraska girl so I love me some steaks… My niece is 10 and her favorite food is steak. I thought that was strange, aren’t 10 year olds supposed to say “pizza” or “ice cream” or something?

  • 5. Kaitlynn  |  December 4, 2009 at 10:06 am

    My family (aka my husband and I) also have this saying where we say “MORE MEAT!” in this really weird voice. Apparently we’re obsessed with meat.

  • 6. Kaitlynn  |  December 4, 2009 at 10:07 am

    Ok this is my last comment….
    I don’t have twitter or a blog, so a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do!

  • 7. Alyssa  |  December 4, 2009 at 11:37 am

    Great giveaway! You’re right, hubs and I would love that-he can really put it away. I’ll have to blog about and I’ll leave you a post then. Thanks for sharing this with all of us.

  • 8. Lindsay  |  December 4, 2009 at 11:44 am

    You know what’s funny? In the picture of Justin flexing, you can still see the wrapper for his Sonic Burger.

  • 9. lauren  |  December 4, 2009 at 11:46 am

    We love meat in our house! I love this giveaway!! 🙂

  • 10. mom  |  December 4, 2009 at 12:04 pm

    I KNOW I can’t win cause I”m your mom and that wouldn’t “be fair” but I STILL love you! 🙂

  • 11. Molly  |  December 4, 2009 at 12:06 pm

    I’m not entering because I’ve already won a giveaway (which I will blog about next week!) but I just wanted to tell you how jealous John’s gonna be that you’re having legit giveaways now. He’s totally blog jealous of you.

    aaaaand that story of Stephen asking about “John” is hilarious.

  • 12. Samantha  |  December 4, 2009 at 12:07 pm

    My husband would go crazy about this because he has everything and he loves meat. What could be more perfect? 🙂

  • 13. HoustonGurly  |  December 4, 2009 at 12:22 pm

    What a nice and super useful giveaway! My freezer is pretty full, but my big, strong hubby will always go for more beef!

  • 14. Lenae  |  December 4, 2009 at 12:24 pm

    We’re meatatarians, so… yes, please 🙂

  • 15. TiphanyB  |  December 4, 2009 at 1:09 pm

    I would love to win meat from Green Grass Meats and am amazed you can purchase all of that for only $49.99! I’m wishing I had someone to send it to!

  • 16. TiphanyB  |  December 4, 2009 at 1:26 pm

  • 18. timlinzrowland  |  December 4, 2009 at 1:39 pm

    I would like to have this for my dad who has everything and loves to grill. PERFECT!

  • 19. Kate  |  December 4, 2009 at 1:39 pm

    Yum…meat 🙂 I actually started reading your blog a few months ago…then I guess I got busy and forgot about it. But now I’ve found it again, yay! It’s fun taking a break from my day to read the stories from your life. It’s entertaining and I feel like we have a lot in common. So thanks for sharing!

  • 20. Eric  |  December 4, 2009 at 1:51 pm

    Mmmmmm meat! This would be perfect to grill on my brand new huge gas grill! Seriously you and Stephen need to come over and see it. It’s beautiful.

  • 21. Taryn E  |  December 4, 2009 at 1:52 pm

    mmm…meat. specifically, brisket 🙂 You have no idea how much this Texas girl misses brisket here in south florida. They THINK they know what brisket it, but they are sorely mistaken.

    Your blog always brings a smile to my face! 🙂

  • 22. Southern Gal  |  December 4, 2009 at 2:00 pm

    You know I love you Chelsea!

    And my men (husband, 18yo and 7yo) will love ME if I win this one!!

  • 23. Darla  |  December 4, 2009 at 2:43 pm

    I love you Chelsea! And giveaways! And food!

  • 24. Pippy  |  December 4, 2009 at 2:45 pm

    What a cool giveaway!

  • 25. Darla  |  December 4, 2009 at 2:46 pm

    I “tweeted” about it, but don’t know how to link. Surprised? Oh BFK please tell me how to do this! But, I copied and pasted what I “tweeted”.


    Win free food at Chelsea’s blog!

  • 26. abby  |  December 4, 2009 at 2:48 pm

    This is pretty much a frickin awesome giveaway and I really hope I win!

  • 27. Christine  |  December 4, 2009 at 5:36 pm

    The Brinkmans love meat! Hope we win!

  • 28. Laura  |  December 4, 2009 at 5:53 pm

    This blog is hilarious! A few words from myself: MEAT is awesome, MEAT is delight, I sure would love to open my freezer and have that MEAT for dinner tonight!!! In fact, I just might have to go buy a deep freezer now according to my wonderful husband so we make sure we safely store this MEAT! (that’s one thing he doesn’t have yet).

    P.S. Justin really loved that Sonic Burger. He wants another one right now.

  • 29. Pamela  |  December 4, 2009 at 6:54 pm

    Actually that would be a great gift for my ‘have- nothing-but-student-loans’ son.

  • 30. Tiffany  |  December 4, 2009 at 6:57 pm

    who doesn’t love free food, count us in 🙂

  • 31. trek  |  December 4, 2009 at 7:01 pm

    Beef – it’s what’s for dinner!

  • 32. Kristin  |  December 4, 2009 at 10:44 pm

    I’m not a big dude but I would be in love with anyone who gave me a cooler full of good steaks!

  • 33. Angie  |  December 4, 2009 at 10:46 pm

    Oooh, that would be an amazing prize!! Thanks for a great giveaway (and for giving me an idea for what to get a few people on my list!!)

  • 37. Kathy  |  December 5, 2009 at 6:33 pm

    You are some bigtime blogger girl…….Giveaways! You are almost famous I bet : ) I will be able to say I knew her when she was just a tiny sprout and when things get really crazy your mom & I can go with you for all your big interview and talk show appearances, just tagging along as a couple of old wanna be bloggers. I can see it now. But seriously there’s nothing like a nice tender steak…ymmmmmmm. Also my brain works better when I get lots o protein!

  • 38. Kathleen  |  December 6, 2009 at 9:12 am

    Yum, I can get behind some free meat!

  • 39. Debbie  |  December 6, 2009 at 6:22 pm

  • 40. Alyssa  |  December 6, 2009 at 7:35 pm

    Okay, I swear I already posted the link to my post about this but I’m not seeing it…I must be losing my mind! Here it is:

  • 41. Kyla Roma  |  December 6, 2009 at 10:58 pm

  • 44. kelly  |  December 7, 2009 at 11:59 am

    i would say i should win this so i can cook for john when he gets home from baton rouge, but really it would be better for him to cook for me. i couldn’t do these steaks justice 🙂

  • 45. thatmarriedcouple  |  December 7, 2009 at 12:23 pm

    I love meat!

  • 46. Kristen  |  December 7, 2009 at 12:28 pm

    A true Maxwell… I also love meat.

  • 47. kimberly reisinger  |  December 7, 2009 at 12:59 pm

    My husband is a real carnivore…he buys all the steak, brisket, etc. for our house. So free meat would be a dream come true for him.

  • 48. rachel  |  December 7, 2009 at 1:37 pm

    does anyone else have the insatiable need to enter EVERY SINGLE GIVEAWAY they come across?

    i mean, i don’t.

    just wondering about the rest of ya’ll.

  • 49. Dottie  |  December 7, 2009 at 9:48 pm

    Hey Chelsea! Fun Blog!

  • 50. Rachel  |  December 7, 2009 at 10:08 pm

    We have a whole cow in our deep freeze… and yet I’m sure Andrew would appreciate even more meat if I won. 🙂

  • 51. Steph  |  December 7, 2009 at 11:14 pm

    Richie would love it if we won!! (ok – I would be pretty happy too)

  • 52. fritz  |  December 8, 2009 at 10:44 am

    i have a thirteen year old, who eats like it is his job, i could have him tested for tape worm, but i don’t think it is necessary…

  • 53. Lauren From Texas  |  December 8, 2009 at 4:16 pm

    I commented, tweeted, and facebooked!

    This is my comment.

    Here’s my tweet:

    And go look at my facebook. 🙂

    That’ll be three entries, please! I wanted to blog about it but I forgot to stick it in my last entry. I suck.


  • 54. jenferlouise  |  December 8, 2009 at 6:10 pm

    Okay, so I tweeted and Facebooked and added your button to my blog.

  • 55. dottiedags  |  December 8, 2009 at 6:21 pm

    So I love steak and Lauren swears I will also love you. 🙂

  • 56. dottiedags  |  December 8, 2009 at 6:29 pm

    And I am not hip to the game to leave you a fancy smarty pants comment with the actual tweet like Lauren so this is my best shot at showing you I retweeted. It should also be brought to your attention that retweeted sounds…..dirty.

  • 57. Jen Lynn  |  December 8, 2009 at 10:04 pm

    Ok all I’m saying is that A) I love me some Chelsea B) I love me some meat…especially free meat C) Rachel Lynne is married to a farmer so I better beat her out for this one 😉

  • 58.  |  July 5, 2013 at 12:10 pm

    I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.
