Dinner Time?

What time does the average person eat dinner at? I know most people associate dinner with six o'clock, but in my family we eat fairly early, like five, five thirty early. Other people I know, they don't have dinner until seven or eight. What time do you normally eat dinner at?


Gone. Like yesterday is gone.

We eat between 7:30 and 8:00 PM most nights.

We sit down for supper between 530 and 6.

ETA: We have children so we need to be on a schedule for meals.

We eat between 8:00 and 9:00, but I know that's later than most people's suppertime. Thing is, once I get my tummy full, I'm ready for bed, so I hate to eat too early.
We get by with a little help from our friends

kids go to bed at 7pm, so we eat about 5:30.
In the summer we tend to eat later.

My sister eats dinner very late. She is in NY and is 3 hours ahead and often we eat dinner before she does!

we don't have a set time to eat, it depends if I cook dinner. If I don't cook and there are leftovers, hubby eats that when he is hungry.

While we have daylight savings on, it is about 8:30pm before the kitchen/dining room has cooled down sufficiently to have dinner. In the winter it is about 6-7pm so not too dissimilar from the real summer time I guess. Depends a bit how hungry vs tired I am.

Too many restaurants, not enough time...
