Where do you eat meals?

Just curious.

It's just the two of us, so most of our meals are at the breakfast bar that faces the kitchen. I have a small tv on the kitchen counter across the kitchen where we watch the evening news and Jeopardy every night. I wish I could get hubby to go on Jeopardy...he knows 95% of the answers!

Our dining table seems to only be used when we have company, although once in a great while, I'll set up the table with candles for the two of us. How about you?

Pretty much exactly the same as you, except I know 99% of the answers!

I went up and tried out for Jeopardy once. It was fun! Unfortunately, Alex was out of state at the time. They said the average Jeopardy player tries out 5 times before getting on.

With such a small kitchen/dining area, it kind of came down to having either a table or the freezer. The table wasn't in great shape anyway, and I don't want to give up my freezer, so the table went. It is just James and me, so we eat in the living room.

When my daughter was growing up, and later when James's daughter lived with us for awhile, we always ate together at the table. I think that is really important family time.

Sometimes.

Usually I just toss out random answers and see if they match up with the questions.

When I'm eating alone I often enjoy my meals while standing at the breakfast counter.

Supper is almost always at the dining table, which is in a dining area of the living room. Our kitchen is too small for a table :(

Other meals, mostly: me - on the couch in the living room, my DH - in his office

We usually eat at the kitchen table. We do that as often as I can. When it is just the kids eating they have a small table that my grandfather made when his son was born. It has been passed down to all his kids, all their kids, and now we my kids have started the third generation of kids to use it. They love sitting at that little table. It is just the right size for them.

No dinning room, just kitchen table, I eat there if I have company. The computer desk is in the living room, so I eat here.
