My husband the Veteran

Happy Veterans Day!

Unless you live under a rock, you know that today is Veterans Day. Yes another day for the kids to hang out with you! 🙂 This federal holiday was set aside to salute and celebrate  men and women who have served or are serving in the military.  But did you know that its when the fighting of World War I officially ended in the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, in 1918.

My husband is a veteran. We had all day to come up with ways to thank him for his service to protect, and serve our country. We had many ideas but ended up with burnt cabbage, veggie loaf, Mac & Cheese with green tea. For dessert he had Cassies Cake pops, she made him a mango rum and classic yellow with french vanilla frosting.

He said that he didn’t want to go into any restaurant because, we wanted to save money & he would take everyone. But for those who did enjoy the numerous establishments that were offering free meals/other deals. Lucky you!

Online, I seen these:
