    If you go out for the day and take sandwiches with the intention to eat them for your mid-day meal...Is this a packed lunch or a packed dinner?

    First meal of the day - breakfast
    Meal around midday - lunch
    Light snack / informal meal late afternoon / very early evening - tea
    Large / formal meal 6pm onwards - Dinner
    Late night light meal - Supper

    Glad to have sorted that out for you all. :laugh8::laugh8:

    I forgot there's different rules on Sundays, whereby Sunday dinner is a massive meal taken at any time between lunch-time and tea-time.

    For me, lunch is around 11:30 to 12:00 noon and tea is around 18:00 to 19:00. A "dinner" is multiple courses in the late evening, or on Christmas day around 2pm. Don't do many "dinners".

    I'm sorry but "lunch" is for posh people and usually the wives of rich men who don't have anything better to do and it is in very expensive places and you only get a fiddling amount. I seen it on the telly you know.

    Devils advocate -

    If you took sandwiches on a day out and intended to eat them at 5 p.m would you call them a "Packed Dinner"

    Take sandwiches in a packed lunch to work,tea break first and you'll eat a sandwich then lunch and guess what you'll eat another sandwich and you've already had your breakfast and if you work shifts like me you'll have and evening tea break where you might scoff a bun or a bar of chocolate then go him for tea where you will sit down and eat a dinner and if you're on nights it's all reversed and you may end up having a Chinese,pizza or anything from a takeaway depending what the general consensus is.
    So.......

    That's quite enough from you two, any more and I'll have you horse whipped. Bloody lower orders. Know your place! Now, I'm off for a spot of tea.

    Da-Hong Pao, *Panda Dung, Vintag Narcissus or Tieguanyin? :laugh8:



    *Panda Dung tea is, perhaps, the most bizarre and nutrient-rich tea in the list. What makes it so peculiar? One of the most expensive teas in the world, Panda Dung tea, is made with the help of panda poo. Pandas eat wild bamboo and only absorb 30% of its nutrients. Similar to green tea, crisp and tender bamboo extracts contain a cancer-preventing agent. The man behind the brew, An Yanshi, a former calligraphy teacher, fertilizes the tea crop along with the nutrients and fiber-rich poo.

    Yanshi says the tea has a very mature, nutty taste, and leaves a distinctive aroma while it’s brewing. sick...
    The Panda Dung tea leaves are sold at almost $35,000 for 500g. Its logo features China’s symbolic animal wearing a bow tie and holding a steaming cup of green tea.

    Everybody knows that it is illegal to eat a sandwich after 2.30pm so your argument is invalid.

    Of course not - that would obviously be your tea!

    I was listening to BBC 6 Music yesterday afternoon and they played a song called 'Chippy Tea' by the Lancashire Hotpots. @Chippy_Tea - have you ever heard it? If not, you need to track it down!

    Hi davidfromUS,

    Being from BC I can say that Windsor, Ontario, is just barely Canadian. This is easily seen by dropping by any bar and surveying the taps -- you'll find more American beers than Canadian beers. If you need further proof, driving from Detroit to Windsor you head south across the bridge.

    To bring this back on topic, my late father always used dinner for the big meal of the day, regardless of when it was served (he grew up on the prairies). This became an issue when my brothers and I showed up to Christmas dinner only to find that the meal had ended two hours earlier.
