at the dining table, pretty much all the time, except the occasionally really light meals at the bar.  we’re not really TV people, and we talk A LOT (i know you would never have guessed that about me).

I tend to graze throughout the day, so my dinner isn’t really dinner, it’s more like a series of random snacks… and I typically watch TV and eat on the couch too, because FI’s already gotten home and eaten 2-3 hours before me.  On weekends we’ll use our breakfast nook for a home-cooked meal, but weeknights are all about comfort AND convenience.

We eat at the dining room table, which is attached to the living room, so we normally have the tv on.  Good question…I wonder what we will do when we have kids…

On the couch with the TV on…shame on us newlyweds!  We for sure don’t want to do that when we have kids, though.

According to my husband, I use the dining room table as my personal "dumping ground," so we usually eat on the couch and watch a DVR’d program.  Occasionaly, I will clear the table of clutter, and we will have a nice meal, often one we have cooked together, which we like to do.

As of now we eat on the couch while watching TV, we only have 700 sq ft, so our kitchen table now serves as a place to store stuff and we have no coffee table, so we eat on TV trays.  We plan to change this when we move, and we’ve already discussed and made the decision that once we have kids there will be no TV at dinner.

We eat at the table, no tv, almost every night.  We spend much of our time playing on our computers or watching tv, so it’s nice to have that sit at the table and talk time, even if we eat in 15-20 minutes.

No TV, but right now it’s so cold in the house that we have to eat dinner in the one warm room… the bed room :O  During normal temperatures, we eat at the dining room table.

We don’t have a tv or cable, so anything we watch is streamed from the internet.  It leaves us with more time for knitting, talking, surfing the web and reading.

We eat dinner out our couch evernight and our coffee table serves as our dining table.  We usually watch TV or a DVR’d program.  We both work long hours and have very little down time so we like it this way.  But, we don’t have a dining room at this point…and once kinds come, I am sure things will change.

Yeah, we don’t really have a dining room table so we crash on the couch.  Sometimes we just sit and talk, other times I just want to space out, so we put on a DVD of a TV show so we don’t have to pay much attention to plot and just enjoy our dinner and each other.

I don’t like the idea of watching tv while eating dinner, I would probably like to have a table to sit and eat at, but I guess I wouldn’t mind the TV on while at the dinner table.  We’re not big TVers, so I think it’s more of the couch that gets me!  Grrrr that damn comfortable couch!

We eat in front of the tv, every night, on the couch with the coffee table as the dining table. However, there is little alternative as we do not own a real table, because there is no room for it in our 650 sq-foot apartment. I really wish we had a real table. And chairs!

TV, we watch our favorite tv series… but I know that when were gonna have Mini-flamingos the no tv rule will kick in.

I grew up with no tv while dinner, and I think that a good thing.

We eat dinner at our dining room table and talk. Usually the TV is on in the background but we are not really watching it. It is very rare that we sit in front of the TV and eat dinner we usually only do that if there is a football game on TV.
