Ever wonder what the difference is between lunch, supper, and dinner? Wonder no more!
"Lunch is a noon or evening meal, depending on when the main meal I'd served. The main meal is dinner, whether it is served at noon or evening. When dinner is served in the evening, the noon meal is known at lunch; when dinner is served at noon, the evening meal is called supper.
There are also three types of luncheons or suppers: light, medium, and heavy. Light lunches or suppers are only for grownups who are very inactive, who have eaten a late heavy breakfast, or will have an early heavy dinner."
