What are your dinner plans tonight? No clue. We are are so low on groceries the gauge is below E.
Tom didn't get paid yesterday due to the snow, so he is out shopping with Collin right now.
What time do you eat dinner? Anytime between 6-7:30, more often than not 6:45-7, I prefer to eat right at 6, but that only happens when I cook. If it were Tom's way we'd eat at 8-9 pm. He has adjust a bit, but won't go any earlier. "If you want to eat earlier, you can cook." is what he says...
Do you sit as a family? Every single night. It's the one tradition from my childhood I push.
Do you watch tv while eating? Nope, I love being able to say that, no no no.
For ages, we all sat in the living room, the boys at their little table, and then when Bailey came she'd be in her swing, and then would eat in the bumbo w/ Tom and I on the couch, but I always complained. But I didn't push it as I was in a serious funk and refused to clean off the clutter from the kitchen table. Especially since Tom would just load more crap on it as soon as I uncovered it. It took me a while to come to terms w not having an open floor plan. Now, Tom will eat most of his dinner with us, but the kids and I always finish before him, and then he finishes on the couch. He grew up eating dinner around 8:30-9, and always in the living room.
How many times a week do you eat out? 0.. Eating out is super rare... We like to order pizza on payday, but even that is a rarity these days. Last time we went out as a family Bailey was, oh jeez... I don't even remember.

What time do you eat dinner? As soon as DH gets home from work - which is usually around 6:30-6:45. I try to pester him to get home earlier since Bella has to wait to eat until he gets home (most of the time, unless she's hungry, then I just feed her first and I wait for him to eat).
Do you sit as a family? Yes, we try to shoot for every night. Even if Bella has already eaten dinner, I'll sit her with us and give her fruit. She's always ready for some fruit!
Do you watch tv while eating? No. I put a stop to that once Bella started eating food with us. I want us to all eat as a family at the table everynight.
How many times a week do you eat out? About 1. BUT, these last few weeks, since I never feel like shopping, we've been ordering out more. But once this kid is born, we will go back to eating normal balanced dinners EVERY night, with the occassional eating out or ordering in. I love to cook, but I've just been so tired lately....
