    I'm the same, I feel a bit embarrassed to admit it* - but my sleep patterns are fucked anyway, midnight seems like a reasonable dinner time according to my body clock. And although I like to think that I am a good cook, I am not a fast cook

    *Edit to add - because let's face it, being a night owl is viewed as somewhat slovenly when compared to the more socially acceptable "early to bed, early to rise" folks with their little golden halos and all that :D

    usually after the kids are in bed these days, so half eightish onwards. but i'm also a fan of the midnight snack: the more i've drunk the more i can usually eat :)

    Dinner is usually on the table when I get home from work at about 5:15, or there's trouble :mad:

    But, as the other half is ill and in hospital at the moment, I've got to fend for myself, and I've not been eating till about 9-10. :(
