Friday Stupid Thread: What Time Do You Eat Dinner?

It appears that everyone has forgotten about the FST. Therefore, what tim do you heat dinner.

I normally don't eat before 9PM/2100, though sometims I am forced by friends to go out for it around 7PM/1900.

However some of my neighborettes have just informed me they are going out for dinner, and it is only 430PM/1630.

Shall they soon be eating dinner at 3PM?

It depends - is dinner in the afternoon (aka lunch) or is it in the evening (aka supper)? And sometimes I don't "heat" dinner - sometimes it's a cold dish.

In the age of television, I think most families (like mine growing up) resort to a "get your own out of the fridge" before they sit to watch whatever's on the tube.

Me personally - I eat dinner usually at work, and that's when I've covered my bases as far as getting things done. So, like for a lot of people, my dinner time isn't a set time.

In fact, I'm hungry right now. So thanks a lot.  Wink

Well Dinner is at night normally. Lunch being at noon. My neighborettes are reinventing the clock it seems. And by "heat" it is an internal joke with another a.netter rather than actually warming the food.

Depends on when I have flown during the day, and when and what everyone else is eating - typically it is no earlier than 5.30, and no later than 8pm.

During the week, it's usually around 8:30 or 9 PM, on weekends, it can be a bit earlier, as the "It's five o'clock somewhere" syndrome may kick in by lunchtime.

We usually have dinner between 7 and 9, usually at 7.30, during the week. On week-ends it can be later, especially when going out with friends.

Workdays: usually around 6:15 - 6:30
Off days: usually around 5 - 6

"Family at the table" dinner almost every night.

Go out about twice a week.

i think it doesn't matter what time of day you eat,if your starving you go and cook strait away or go and buy something.

the clock on the wall or your wrist watch/mobile phone,don't tell you when to eat,your body clock takes care of that.

Amen to that. My wife and I eat together every night unless ATC in the Northeast dictates that I will not be going home from the airport until well after dinner time....

I've gotten into some weird hours in last few years...up at 9am...breakfast somewhere between 9am and noon, most often around 10am..."lunch" between 5pm and 8pm, most often around 6pm..."dinner" most often between 3am - 4am, and quickly followed by bedtime...but many nights, I end up with an unscheduled nap between 10pm-1am that lasts anywher from 15min-2hrs, most often 30+- min...
