i used to call it supper until i stumbled upon this board and it brought me up several culinary levels. i learned real quick to use the word dinner when referring to my PM bloney or skrimps sammich and fine whiskey sippin' meals.
Supper at my house...but when I got all my learning in Decatur, and Clinton, and Starkvegas (2 tours), and Baton Rouge, I learned to impress and call it " dinner" when speaking to other educated folks. Otherwise, it's still supper. I used dinner in the thread title here since we're food snobs an' all.
I can actually hear that conversation...an' smell the chicken. When I had it, I'd be covered in grit from the hay field, wearing torn Wranglers and a cutoff T (back in the day when Budweiser wasn't the only 6 pack I carried around...).
