iReport – family style

The other day, we posted a lunchtime poll asking readers about the frequency of their families' dinner when they were growing up. The comments made us hungry for more.

"We were only allowed to miss family dinner two nights a week when I was growing up and sports/church choir/etc. counted as a miss in addition to hanging out with friends on Friday or Saturday nights. It was tough in high school and at times I really resented it, but it was great. The only problem now is that as an adult living on my own I'm ALWAYS going out to eat with other people because eating by myself seems so lonely after 18 years of family dinners!" - Kate
