Married to the Military Monday- 'No Dough Dinner'

For this weeks edition of Military Monday, I would like to tell you about 'No Dough Dinner.' I have mentioned this before, but I would like to explain a little bit about what it is.

'No Dough Dinner' is hosted by the USO. Every other Monday we go to the USO for dinner. 'No Dough Dinner' is a free dinner for active duty military and their dependents.This free dinner can be sponsored by anybody who is willing to provide the dinner. This could be a society, such as the Lions Club, a local church, or even the new chief selects.

The dinner is catered in or homemade. You could eat anything from Bono's Barbecue or Papa John's pizza, to homemade chicken n' dumplings or spaghetti. There is generally a salad bar, a dessert bar and unlimited tea and kool-aid.One of my favorite meals is the breakfast for dinner bar!

 'No Dough Dinnner' is not always delicious. You might eat something that you have never made at home, or something you would never serve your children at home. Just think of it is a way to stretch your budget or simply take a night off. We sit and talk over dinner knowing that we don't have to clean the kitchen or open our wallets when dinner is over.

My family and I like to come home, take our showers, and head to 'No Dough Dinner' together. Just for fun, we place bets on what we think will be for dinner that night. It's always fun to tell people that I have no idea what is for dinner that night. Sure, I could find out before hand , but that wouldn't be as fun.

That's all for this weeks edition of Married to the Military Monday. If you're in the military, check out 'No Dough Dinner' where you are. Even if you're not in the military, find out how you can help sponsor an upcoming 'No Dough Dinner.'
                     Enjoy the rest of your week!
