    When do you eat dinner?

    I'm curious about when everyone eats dinner. My buddy who lives across the street thinks eating at 5 is typical. Even though I work from home, I still usually work until 5 pm so it would be impossible to eat at 5 pm considering I actually cook. If I had to commute, it would push things back further therefore I can't see how working people can eat at 5 pm. I think 7 pm is probably my average dinner time but I'm going to choose 6 pm, 7 pm, and 8 pm because dinnertime varies at my house.

      I have two boys under 5. When I get home from work at six, it's playtime, dance party, bed at seven and 30 minutes of reading to them. THEN, we start cooking dinner. My wife and I love to cook together, so we have to do it after bed time.

      We’re both retired so no time conflicts. We eat just twice a day. Brunch around 10 AM and dinner around 5 PM.

        I'm retired and do most of the cooking. We try to eat around 6, but that's not set in stone. I do have a hiatal hernia, so I'm not supposed to eat for at least 3 hours before I go to bed, so I try to make sure that happens.

          Growing up we never ate before 8 because we couldn’t eat until my dad came home and we always ate as a family. Usually closer to 8:30. I grew up thinking that was normal. At Marquette I noticed that was considered late and once I started dating my wife, who’s Italian, well, that was the end of that for me. Sunday family dinners with the now in-laws would start around 4 when we were dating. Now, 2 kids later, we eat between 5-6 on average. Working from home allows me to eat with them now because I work about 45 minutes away. Of course when I smoking something…..then all bets are off 😜

            I voted 6 and 7, although we will occasionally eat as early as 5 or as late as 8. If its early its because we've got stuff later on and we're getting it out of the way (and usually minimal cooking or a crockpot meal), if its late its probably because I mis-timed something. We usually shoot for 6 and it winds up being somewhere between the 2.

              On a good night we eat 8:30-9:00. Often it's 9:30ish.
              I don't get home from work until about 7:00. Than take care of the dogs and other BS things.
              I would love to eat earlier. But such is life. Oh and I am the only one who cooks soooo.

              6 to 7. I work from home, but I want to eat late enough that I'm not getting hungry right as I go to bed (10-11) and I usually work until 430 or so depending on what's happening in work life. I've eaten earlier and later, but sometime in the 6-7 timeframe works.

                I eat dinner like clockwork around the Panhead household. Always between 7-7:30. I don’t let no damn woman tell me when to eat! (mainly cause there ain’t one around)

                  Wife sometimes cooks during the week, I might once or twice. Weekends are for the Troutman's gourmet specials. I usually start by 3pm and damned if we don't end up eating until 7-7:30pm. I'm too much the perfectionist, then photographer, then get stuck doing the dishes, to enjoy my own food. I need to marry myself, I'd make an excellent housewife

                    I’ll marry you Troutman. I’ve got a blonde wig, a halter top and some high heels. Will that work?

                    Hmmm, I could be on the market soon too if I move to Texas.
                    I've been told I have sexy feet, the rest of me....not so much.

                  I grew up in Johnson County Indiana in a farm community and the term dinner often meant lunch. Especially Sunday dinner. It was the meal after church. Supper was what we ate at night. I still call my evening meal supper, but I use it interchangeably with dinner. And I always call my noon meal lunch now.

                    Dinner, the way I was raised, is the main, largest meal of the day, but there is no time defined in its meaning. Supper and lunch are lighter meals with an implied time of day. Supper is in the evening. Lunch is around midday.

                    A person could eat breakfast-lunch-supper or breakfast-dinner-supper or breakfast-lunch-dinner.

                    When I moved back to rural Iowa from metro Kansas City, I loved that supper was once again a word I could use and people would understand what I meant.
