    Supper

    I always eat something before retiring so that I don't get hungry in bed. Just as a precaution. You can't be too careful.

    This is my supper tonight

    The Minx always brings a ton-load of food with her when she rocks up for some reason

    This time it is a big wedge of BBQ'ed beef from the Chinese butcher. Suffused with that pungent Star Anise perfume flavour that seems to be ubiquitous to Chinese butchery.

    Very tasty.

    In our house: breakfast, lunch/dinner, supper.

    Now just to be clear, it's dinner ladies that serve the midday meal.

    By the time we get our shit together and eat supper, it's pretty much time for bed anyway.

    ^^ When I grew up it was breakfast, dinner (midday) and tea. Lunch was something that posh people ate. Supper was usually a tomato sandwich with a glass of milk.

    We seem to eat late these days and there's not much time to fit in a supper after dinner.

    That still f*cks me up to this day. It is really, really embarrassing to be corrected by a frigging Thai - "You mean lunch"........

    Tea as in afternoon tea? Then what did you eat in the evening?

    I'm grown up with breakfast around 7/8, lunch around 12/13 and dinner around 18/19 and where lunch was a light meal and dinner a full meal.

    ^^ Tea was the evening meal around 6pm ish.

    On school days tea was a proper meal but at weekends dinner (at lunch time) was the proper meal and tea (at dinner time) waa a light meal.

    That's my heritage.

    I can't keep up myself and often only eat the late meal.

    Trying to honour the beer breaks though.

    I was brought the same as Mendip.
    Breakfast, dinner and tea.

    Breakfast - cereal or full English. I recall even having meat pie occasionally.
    Dinner - at midday if at school school dinners never lunch - the big meal of the day even at weekends. Fish & chips on Saturdays and a roast on Sunday.
    Tea - on arriving at home after school - something fairly light
    Perhaps a snack (sandwich) and a cuppa later in the evening (never referred to as supper).

    ^ My mum put a roast on the table every single Sunday... never missed a single one (something the wife could learn from).

    Saturday dinner time was usually mince beef, potatoes and peas... and always with rice pudding, for pudding. The word 'dessert' didn't seem to exist back then.

    It is called tea if you eat at home.

    If you are invited round to a friends it is called dinner (unless you are still 12 in which case even eating at friends is still called tea)

    And the other exception is if you eat out. In which case it is called a chinky or an eye-tie!

    Breakfast, dinner, supper, and snack when I was growing up. Until I read this thread, I thought tea was like at 4:00 in the afternoon with a light snack. Cucumber sandwiches come to mind, but I know fook all about the crazed Brit customs. Why call it pudding, when pudding could possibly be a pudding?

    If a Brit said it was time for pudding and brought a piece of cake, I'd be thinking that perhaps the person was a bit off.
