Veteran's Day Celebration 2018

The kids had a day off from school during Veteran's day. Unfortunately, our own veteran (my husband)  had to go to work.  The company he works for does not give that day off to  veterans so he had no choice but to go.  Well, he can report off but since it was  the week where he had to do reports that  needs to be done, he went to work.
Anyway, to make it a bit special for him, we made him  a meal we could all share and enjoy at dinner time.  We made  a rolled up steak, mashed potatoes, cream corn and for dessert, we made his favorite fruit salad.
  I chose the rolled up steak to make but putting flavor  in the middle is  a challenge when the meat is  frozen.  Gladly, I have the Stainless Steel Marinade Meat Injector from  Cavetools.  This high grade stainless steel will never clog, bend, or break .  It includes 3 professional marinade needles for injecting flavor into chicken, turkey, beef, pork, brisket and any other foods.
This would be perfect to give as a gift set this Thanksgiving or Christmas.  You can get this injector  with 15% Off at  amazon using  Injector15 promo code.  Or you can buy it directly from the Cavetools website.
It was perfect using it  with these rolled up steak because I didn't have to  defrost the meat to  infused the  marinate flavor in it.  My husband love  steak with A1 sauce so I used that to enhanced the beef's flavor.

The kids  made their Dad personalized cards which he loved. These cards always makes my husband feel appreciated  for his 20 years of serving the military.  I am proud to be married to a veteran sailor.

That sounds like it was one delicious spread. I know I could have seriously powered down a ton of it!

I have never injected meat before but it would be a wonderful way to get the flavor in quickly. Would work faster over marinating.

I am making the ham this year, but when I thought I was making the turkey, I was looking into something like this. It seems like a great way to make your turkey extra flavorful.
