18-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Sunday, April 13, 1913: Went to Sunday School this morning. Took dinner with Carrie.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Which meal did Grandma eat with her friend, Carrie Stout?
I’m almost sure that it was the noon meal—but today it seems like most people are refer to the evening meal as dinner.
When I was a child growing up we always called the mid-day meal dinner. But, I’m never sure if other people understand what I mean when I say dinner–so my family eats breakfast, lunch and supper.
What do you call the meals?
