We eat together more in the summer. As soon as school starts so does sports, soccer---->basketball------>softball. Plus from Nov. to April hubby works evening shift so he's not home. Then youngest DD and I usually eat together.

Yep.. only the two of us so it is not that difficult to sync up. Occasionally we eat at different times... but we are together!

I wish. I work till 8 or 8:30. By the time I get home I hope kids are asleep, or they can't wake up in the morning.
You are what you eat.

The dh and I have a nice little routine going on, when he's not working graves we eat dinner every night and either sit out on the patio or inside at the coffee table and put in a funny movie. We still talk over the movie, about our day and how the dinner is etc. We dont have kids (and arent planning for any) so this alone time together is really great. My biggest concern is making sure I can actually COOK every dinner. I need to remember that take out is okay every once in a while...

My husband and I are childless, but choose to have a regular meal time at supper time. 6 p.m., give or take. Sometimes we sit at the dining room table, sometimes at the kitchen table, and some times we just "sit around". But we pretty much set aside an hour or two to eat together in the evenings.

Yep, dinnertime is dinnertime at our house. Unfortunately, it seems like I cook 3 or 4 different "entrees" every night!! (finicky eaters.....)
Mess with me and you mess with the whole trailer park!!!

Right now, it's just DH and I - we eat together most nights, except Wednesdays, when I go out with friends (he's invited but rarely comes along). When we have exchange students, we eat together as much as possible, but they usually have sports or other school activities going on a few days a week. We generally eat rather late - around 8 p.m. - and school activities, other than sports games or matches, are usually over by then, so we're usually able to eat together. It's a priority for us.

We always did when both kids were small. Ds works 4- 6 nights so it's kind of hard but when he is home we all eat together. Dh and I almost always eat dinner together except Thursday nights when I bowl or when he goes to play cards.
