When I was growing up, our evening meal was usually served by 6 p.m. Rarely later.
When I had my own family and all the children were at home, I usually had supper/dinner on the table by 6:30 p.m. That was a bit of a challenge some days since both Buck and I worked outside of our home. Fortunately, our places of work were only a couple of miles from our home.
Since it's been just the two of us, we tend to eat quite late by our area standards - not before 8 or 8:30 p.m. It works well for us, especially since we're night owls and don't usually go to bed before midnight.
