Another thread got me thinking. How are your (evening) meals served in your home? Do you have multiple courses every evening? Do you serve each course by itself or all at once? Do you plate the food in the kitchen and then bring it out or is it family style? Or do you have different styles based on whether it's weekday or weekend?
I do cook from scratch, so every meal is at least somewhat time consuming. Weekdays are very casual, as I don't have time (or the metabolism) to make multiple courses. Weekends are different, but we still don't have multiple courses, formal dinners every weekend even. But during the week, it's a single "course" that includes salad, served all at once. We almost never eat dessert, even on weekends.
