Veteran’s Day 2022 Freebies

Veteran’s Day is next week, and this year there are some pretty cool.

Some of these offers require proof of service either via a Military ID Card (active duty or retired) or a DD214.

Since I’m in So Cal, I choose to post offers that are available in my area, however, there are tons more offers available if you live elsewhere in the US. I suggest googling, “Veteran’s Day 2022 and your location”.

As always, contact the local restaurant/store before heading out to confirm that your local locations are participating.

Non-food freebies

  • Grace For Vets – Free Car Wash
  • Great Clips – Free Haircut or Haircut Card
  • Sports Clips – Free haircuts for active-duty military and veterans
  • National Parks All U.S. National Parks will be offering free admission to the public on Veteran’s Day.
  • SeaWorld Parks offer free admission to the active and retired military (plus up to 3 dependents) through their Waves of Honor program.
  •  True REST Float Spa: On Nov. 11, True REST Float Spa will close every location to the public and invite retired military to float for 60-minutes, free of charge. True REST Float Spa recommends veterans who would like to float on Nov. 11 make an appointment soon by visiting TrueRest.com/free-floats-for-military-veterans. Individuals must bring a form of military identification to their appointment, such as a D.D. Form 214. True REST has a total of 37 open locations across 22 states, with some locations having up to six float pods equipped with showers, changing rooms, an oxygen bar and an oasis room to elevate the spa-like experience.

11/7/2022 Weekly Meal Plan

0a5e9dab796cea8a07eabe4eb4795b9e.jpgThankfully I was able to spend a few hours yesterday doing meal prep for this week, and I’ll be doing produce prep when our  Yasukochi Family Farms CSA box arrives, which will be delivered this afternoon.

I went to the grocery store on Friday night and picked up some meat and black bean burgers, which I haven’t bought in a while, due to rising costs, but there were a few meals I wanted to make that we haven’t had in a while.

Most of the meal prep used ingredients that we already had on-hand.

We’ve been trying a lot of new foods lately, thanks to the really great freebies from Social Nature lately too. It’s fun to try new foods.

For those of you that are new to meal planning, I’ve got an easy 101 style post here with super easy tips and steps. After you get that down, here is info about batch or freezer cooking.

I’ve gotten a pretty good inventory of the pantry, freezer, and fridge done (I try to update it after every shopping trip), so I’m able to plan meals and use up what we’ve got with little waste.

I only post our dinner plans for the week, because our other meals are usually the same each day.

Breakfast: Coffee with 1/2 and 1/2  for me, and pancakes or something along those lines for the kids. They are also into fruit and bagels for breakfast. Lately, the big kid has been digging protein shakes in the morning. This is his favorite kind. 

Lunch: I have a plastic tote in the cupboard full of self-serve snacks. I buy treats and snacks in bulk and fill up snack-sized zip-top bags. The big kid brings his lunch from home every day and the littlest buys her lunch at school about half the time. In California, all public schools provide breakfast and lunch for free.

Dinner: This week is packed as far as appointments, so I’m leaning on stuff that’s easy and tasty. I prepped fruits and veg over the weekend and made up the last Dream Dinner and portioned it into lunch-sized servings.

  • Monday:  Veggie Tortellini Soup (The recipe will be posted this week), Cheese Toast, green salad

  • Tuesday: Black Bean Burger enchiladas, roasted veggies

  • Wednesday: Nuggets, fruit, crackers, and cheese (the typical Wednesday night dinner)

  • Thursday:  Roasted Veggies, Meatballs, Rice or Noodles

  • Friday: Takeout night!
  • Saturday:    Crockpot chili, biscuits
  • Sunday:  Leftovers
