We are very family oriented so Sunday is family day.

Living in the mid-west we are big on tradition, one of those being the big Sunday dinners, or lunch, depending on where you live. Hubby and I just had the discussion on what people call meals depending on the area of the country in they reside. We eat breakfast, dinner and supper, while others eat breakfast, lunch and dinner. Although if we are eating something simple, say a sandwhich, then we are having lunch, but if I am cooking and it involves two or more dishes then it becomes dinner LOL

On Sundays we have dinner and I make sure I cook enough so there is left overs for supper :) This is the day my kids and grandkids are here, quite possibly my favorite day of the week. On second thought make that a certainty!

This is the day for talking and laughing and getting caught up with what we all have been doing. It is a day for playing games or watching a good movie together, or some times for finding a comfortable place to make our nests and taking a nap.

You could call this our celebration of weeks end knowing tomorrow it starts all over again.

I had to giggle about that naming-the-meals thing. My mother's from Louisiana & so is my husband. Still, I get cornfused every time we visit his family because they call the meals something different than I'm used to. There's breakfast, dinner, & supper. Here, in Maryland, it's breakfast, lunch, & dinner. I recall my grandmother always calling us in to "supper," & that was in Houston.

And when my mother-in-law was well, she lived to be in the kitchen. If you ate at her house (& if you were there, you DID eat at her house), you had the 1st take on the meal at dinner, then turned around & ate your next portions of that meal at dinner. Sounds similar, eh?

I had a nice, quiet day w/hubby today. My sons are gone again. The youngest lives now in FL & the oldest in AZ. They were home for a week, & this coming week will be at a family reunion w/their dad's side.

Hubby & I roamed the countryside today. Amazing what's in this area. Frederick County, MD has become something of a Washington, DC North. Lots of areas that really aren't talked about in common daily news are cropping up -- in the event Washington gets nailed. Kind of scary, in a way. Drive up to a lane, & there's a sign that essentially tells you to go no further, or else.

And Camp David isn't far. You REALLY don't want to go near there!

Blessings -- Linda

I'm a documentary junkie. Recently, I re-watched one on the food in Tudor times and the reference to “dinner” was mentioned.

I’ll have to dig it out to watch again but to the best of my recollection “dinner” is a Middle English word and it refers to the late morning meal.

Here is how I remember it: your average citizen would rise at dawn and skip breakfast. No time, and usually didn’t have anything to eat anyway. Then home to the main meal of the day at around 11:00 a.m. - dinner. Supper was usually a soup or left-overs because, hey, who could afford two meals a day (let alone three)?

So, the “gentry” in later times, enjoyed breakfast, luncheon and then dinner. But, the middle and lower classes (most of us blokes) had to be content with dinner and maybe a light supper.

Oh, and “supper” came from the word “sop” which is where you would take your, I’m sure, stale bread and dip it into the soup for “supper.”

I’ll have to see if I can find out where luncheon and dinner came from. Breakfast is obvious. I'm sure dinner probably came from a reference to dining or eating.

I love finding the origin of words!
