    Dinner meaning the evening meal. I've heard some people refer to lunch as dinner. Some call dinner supper.

    I think growing up we ate late around 7 or 8PM. Now I don't have a set time but I think 6PM would be it if I did.

    In NY around 8:00. In Hawaii about 7:00. If on vacation about 9:00. I call it breakfast, lunch and dinner. I've heard people in the midwest refer to dinner as supper... and they eat it earlier around 6:00.

    Yup, us hicks-in-da-sticks are guilty of that 6 PM pull-up-a-trough and shovel-it-in-yer-face supper-time punctuality. You betcha.:biggrin1:

    Of course, none of the above applies when da Packers and da Bears have a game. We do all of the above before, during, and after da game, and cut the cheese for hours afterward.

    I realize that for most of da world, if us folks from the Midwest had our brains taxed, we'd get a refund; but we punctuate brilliantly.:tongue:

    Ya hey, in so.

    If you have breakfast at 8AM, and if you have lunch at noon, 6PM would be a logical time for dinner.

    Well I sort of graze throughout the day. I have a whey shake before I go to the gym at 6:00 am and then around 8:00 I have a papaya and toast and coffee.
    About 11:00 I have some yogurt or cheese and a hand full of peanuts or a banana.
    Then around 2:30 I have a salad or sandwich and some fruit. Later in the afternoon when I have a lull I have coffee and a little nosh.
    Around 7:00 I start throwing together dinner... then around 9:30 a little dessert. If I'm staying up late watching television or a movie I'll make some popcorn after the news. If I'm really throwing the diet out the window I might have ice cream too!

    I have no set time on eating when it's just me, I eat when I'm hungry, which is more like 6 small meals in a day .... example: cottage cheese and a whole chopped tomato

    I don't eat til later - during the week I'm not usually home from work til after 7, after 9 if I work out afterwards... so my dinner time varies.

    In my country lunch is the main meal. We usually have things you guys, in The States have for dinner. Unless you have guests, dinner is quite a boring, breakfastlike meal. We usually hve it around 7 PM.

    Breakfast, lunch and dinner get eaten when the mood strikes... but as a kid mom always had dinner ready between 5-6.

    Just an fyi... dinner is the largest meal of the day...regardless of what time it is eaten.

    I have dinner anytime between 4pm and 10pm. Just depends on the day, what I did, and how much/when I ate.

    My mind sends my stomach a hunger signal like clockwork daily between 4:30 PM & 5:00 PM...and I obey.

    Usually between 12am and 2am. If I have to wake up early for some reason, I'll eat between 10pm and 12am in a usually hopeless attempt to get to bed early.

    Most of the time, I start my evening meal (which I call dinner, as does everyone I know) between 6:30 and 7:00; certainly before 8:00. When I have a musical rehearsal or performance in the evening, I may have to dine as early as 5:00, with no time for wine with the meal or dessert afterward.

    Ugh, depending on the amount of work I have that day sometime between 6pm and 9pm. I try to stay between 6-7pm but I have a few nights a week that it's closer to 9pm before I can have dinner.

    Maybe it's a regional thing, I grew up in the Northeast. When I say or her dinner I also think of the evening meal.
