Most nights my sweetie and I actually do sit down to eat at the dining room table. It's not usually a formal thing. We'll be in the middle of a conversation when dinner is ready, so we just fill our plates from the pan and continue on talking in the dining room. Back when we were in an apartment with a kitchen island, we'd often get so absorbed that we'd never make it to the dining room and eat standing up!
But there are just as many nights when we're not feeling talkative. Those times, we still usually sit down at the dining room table, but it's usually with books in front of us. And yes, there are a fair number of meals eaten at the computer while checking e-mail and catching up on news!
What are your mealtime habits?
