    we usually don’t since our schedules are so weird (I’m full time grad and work, he’s full time work) and I’m on a special diet. I have noticed though since now that I am eating healthier, he has started.

    Why don’t you try fish or pork chops?

    @MsBrooklynA: my favorite part of being an adult is that I can eat what I want when I want.

    We eat on the couch because the place is small and while we do have a table it’s just uncomfortable.  We do talk about each other’s days etc when we get in.  But dinner is usually accompanied by the TV. Tongue out

    do you tend to make the ground beef the same way? Maybe coming up with some new recipes would change your feelings about it?

    Like thai lettuce wraps? 

    bolognese sauce?

    stuffed hamburgers (with cream cheese and roasted red pepper say)

    middle eastern or indian kebobs (made this this weekend- I bought a seasoning packet though and with ground beef)

    swedish or asian meatballs

    stuffed peppers or tomatoes o zuchinni boats

    taco salad, enchiladas etc


     But we almost always eat together. If someone is working late the other will eat, but then sit with the other person. If a big game is on we will eat in front of the TV or if its a really easy food night like leftovers or just salads.

    And often we will eat different things or rather variations of the same base meal to match our tastes health desires.  sometimes its completely different.

    I honestly can’t imagine eating dinner alone, but that’s because I always sat down and had dinner at a specific time.  His family is gravitating to this routine more frequently now though it wasn’t always like that.  We both enjoy eating together though.

    I like that we eat dinner together every night but I am getting really tired of always having to cook stuff that he likes.  I think he’s tired of not getting some of his favorite things, either.  It gets really frustrating because he hates chicken, I don’t eat much dairy, I want to put eggplant and mushroom on everything, he refuses to eat my crazy health foods like quinoa and tempeh.  We’ve found a bunch of recipes that work for us, but we’re getting kind of tired of them since it’s basically the same seven or eight dinners over and over again.

    Blergh.  That’s my whine.

    Growing up it was every man for himself. My Dad is a military man and that’s what he used to tell us. He would walk out of the kitchen with a plate of food, look at us and say “I got mine!” My mom was a work aholic growing up and didn’t have time to cook, so my sisters and I would eat whatever was easiest. We all sat on the couch watching TV usually eating at different times. I’m not relaly sure how FI’s family dinner time was growing up. But we eat together just about everynight. We take turns cooking and we both have our specialties. We eat either on the dining room table or in the TV room tray tables.

    Nearly every night. Fiance works until 8-830 at least twice a week and I even usually wait for him on those nights.

    We eat together every chance we can get. But with our schedules it isn’t as often as we would like. We do, however sit around the computer (we don’t have cable) and watch a show on Hulu. When we do get cab;e and a DVR it will turn into eating in the livingroom while watching TV or at the table so long as we can see the TV. lol. Not sure how that is going to change once we have kids though.

    We almost always eat together and we have hamburger at least once a week. I usually try to change it up to keep it from getting boring. I’ll make tacos, chili, goulash, baked ziti with meat, hamburgers, meatballs…anything to keep from eating the same thing every week.

    He’s the same way with chicken. “We’re having chicken again? JEEZ.” But since I got pregnant I hate all meat and rarely EVER cook anything besides frozen pizzas haha. Last week he got shepard’s pie and corned beef and cabbage on back to back  nights. He about had a heart-attack. 🙂
