    Question Based on your own lifelong history/experience can you tell me what is..."Supper Time"

    All walks, all talks and cultures treat the evening meal differently...some with tradition and some with McDonalds. Many families share an evening meal together yet their numbers are heavily tempered by the "I'll get something while I'm out" crowd.

    How do you remember it? You know, from when you were a kid and mom would outdo herself on a daily basis to keep the army fed (I'm the oldest of seven) or the chow downs with my Italian grandparents from which you could not escape without a trunkful of food to take home. Early adult years are often riddled with lessons on how not to start fires with food and the cuisine matures from there as one does themself.

    Food on the table at 5pm, 6,7,8? I got used to a routine of anytime between 6~7pm as a kid but have over the years honed that routine to a very strict rule of "whenever"

    This could be interesting. Food is a more sacred and volatile topic than either religion or politics...but is allowed.

    Depending on the year, the people, the circumstances and tradition it can vary from about 5 PM to 9 PM local time. "Dinner" is never hurried or overly orchestrated.

    Mom & Dad ate at ~8 PM (but when he was late, so was dinner)
    Navy chow was at 1740 - 5:40 PM (6 hour watch schedule)
    On liberty or vacation it was any time that you damn well pleased.
    Karen and I plan dinner at anywhere from 6 to 9 PM depending on company, food type and circumstances.
    Highway food is slugged down as the opportunity arises.
    Prime rib comes off the grille when it is ready.
    Steak is carefully planned.
    ........ so is fish.
    In Napoli we ate at 10 PM.
    Local restaurant meals are planned to avoid the "rush".

    Someone please uncork the Cabernet................

    Growing up, dinner was served when Dad got home, usually around 7:30 or 8:00, depending on traffic. Mom insisted that we eat as a family, thus the late hour. Now, I eat whenever I get home, which varies depending on my work schedule.

    Well the name of the meal depends on what part of the state of Tennessee you are in, at least that has been my observation . . .

    Breakfast is always early, its that meal you eat when you wake up and before you go to work. My grandparents generation, there was always a meat served at this meal, sausage, country ham, bacon. You might also get an egg or perhaps an omelet served at this meal. There was usually some sort of fruit or veggie served from the garden at this time, since grandpa was an avid gardner. Blueberrys, blackberrys, black raspberrys, watermelon, cantelope, bananas, pineapple, cherrys, my grandpa had an absolutely voracious appetite at breakfast. That man could eat an entire cantelope or watermellon for breakfast, along with an egg or two and some bacon.

    If you were in east Tennessee, Dinner time is between 11:00am to about 1:30pm, Supper is 5:30 to about 7:00pm.

    Funny thing is if you are in Middle Tennessee, Lunch is between 11:00am to about 1:30pm, Dinner is about 6:00pm to 8:00pm. At least that's been my observations growing up with two different generations in two very different parts of the state.

    We ate fast food mostly growing up, and never at the table. Now, at my house, we cook a lot and eat at the table frequently. You don't have to follow what your taught, you can teach yourself new/better stuff.

    Have always ate early dinners since a kid, around 5-530. Almost never ate out as a kid and still rarely do. I don't eat much for breakfast or lunch (usually too busy) so end up hungry by 5. Possibly if we worked normal 8 to 5 hrs we would eat out more but doubt it, I turn into a 3 headed monster when I get overly hungry so I time dinner appropriately and waiting at a restaurant for food tries my patience too much.
