Our main meal is dinner - evening - mostly because that was our family tradition from years of people being at work, school, wherever. It was the only time we could all plan to be home at the same time to sit down and eat before some went out again to other activities.
Now, it's just the two of us (which simplifies things, lol), but we still tend to have a hot meal for dinner; lunch is often a cold meal, or soup. We do the mini-meal plan, with five or six mini-meals spaced out throughout the day, so it's not entirely accurate to say dinner is our 'main' meal, but it remains the one for which I tend to do the most cooking.
Dinner last night: salmon; kale (plain steamed); carrots (plain steamed); sweetcorn for Himself (plain steamed - do you see a pattern here? lol); yogurt for dessert. Tonight's supper: haddock (well, the menu plan just worked out that way); chopped cabbage with leek (plain steamed); broccoli (plain steamed); and baked potato (for Himself). Tonight being Sunday, I have some nonfat soy ice 'cream' for him, and no-sugar-added low-fat ice 'cream' for me for dessert.
Today is stir-up Sunday at our house. Two Christmas cakes and two small Christmas puddings in the works. It does make me wonder if I'm in my right mind - lotta work - but then again, they're two desserts I don't like so it's easy to resist temptation--!

Our main meal depends on what hubby's work schedule is. Currently he's on 1st shift, so evening dinner is our main meal. This evening my mother took us out to eat. Wasn't happy with the service. Tomorrow I will be cooking and it will be chicken for the family, white beans for me, with whole grain pasta and spinach.
