Weekdays I never eat past 7pm, so dinner is usually between 6-6:30pm. Weekends if we are going out for dinner and staying out late after its anywhere between 7-9pm.

Here, it depends on the day of the week and who's actually eating. When the kids were small, dinner time on weekdays was about 6pm.

Now, I usually settle down with a bowl of soup around 7pm.

On saturday, however, when I actually have the entire day to cook at my leisure, and dinner is more of a formal affair, dinner is usually between 7:30 and 8pm.

How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

I'm in the "got kids-eat early camp". I try for 5 but usually ends up 5:30. 6 if I have to stop and break up a smackdown or help with homework!
Every sunday I roast a hunk of meat, we try to make that a 3 or 4pm dinner. Key word, try.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

We eat at 6:30. He gets cranky if not fed by then.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

I get home from work around 6 if I don't stop at the supermarket first so dinner is never before that. We will eat anywhere from 6:00 (if DW cooked) to 7:30. 6:30 is probably what we do most though.

Currently we eat at 5:15 during the week and 6:00 on the weekends. That is likely to change once the weather improves and the days are longer. DH likes to be outside workig on things!!

I don't even get home till at least 5:30 p.m., usually more like 5:45, and I don't start cooking right away I wind down with a glass of wine and the newspaper and usually don't start cooking till during or after the 6:30 national news, so we generally eat between 7:30 and 8.
