Well, I guess we'll save that for tomorrow, we're really not hungry at all.
It seems that mostly in the Summer Time, having a mid-day meal is best and
maybe a small snack in the evening. Thanks Ma!!
We most always have our main meal about 2 or 3 in the afternoon with a snack or dessert before 6PM.. It may be all in our mind but, we believe we sleep better when our meal has had plenty of time to digest.. Of course, we are not night owls...

Pretty much the same here, Ross and kgirl. I shoot for having dinner done and the kitchen cleaned up and closed by about 3, sometimes 4. If I want something a little later in the evening it's usually just cheese and a couple of crackers, or some fruit. I dislike having a meal in the evening, probably because I've just gotten so used to eating earlier in the day.

Great sounding meals last night!

We had leftovers of the Dragon Lady sesame noodles with shrimp, along with the yummy green bean salad. As often happens, it was even better the second day.

I'm such a throwback about having the evening meal on the table between 6-7, but I can see that it would be better to eat earlier as we're almost always lights out by 10:30. Maybe we would sleep better.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.
