I have a simple question: What time do you all eat dinner - the evening meal? I was just in the U.S. and the television ads would have me believe that the ideal is to walk in the door (home from work), go directly to the table and eat. When I was a child my mother had dinner 'on the table' at 6:00, about 45 minutes after my father got home. My friends and family in the U.S. eat anywhere from 5:00 (to me, a late lunch) to 7:00. We, on the other hand have never gotten over 'Spanish' time and eat around 10:00 - later in the summer. When we both worked in the U.S. we ate around 9:00 - with time to relax, walk the dogs, have a glass of wine and prepare a nice dinner together. Feedback anyone?
