I now longer do -often we make it at lunch time, though since I have been writing for Recipe Yum, i have had visitors a few times as I have so much food!

Being on my own I have a problem with cleaning up late at night and hate going to bed and leaving the mess!
by Finy
Very rarely. With such a busy life style, there is just not enough time in the evening!
Answer went before I had finished....I said I don't often have people over for a meal in the evening.....as we 'mature', my friends and I mainly like to eat out when we meet up and..it is usually lunch as we also feel less like venturing out at night, do sometimes to a show or the like but not often for a meal..especially in winter.

When I was younger,and before my health deteriorated,I would do so.But it is all just too much now as I get so exhausted at the drop of a hat. Something must have rubbed off though,as my son became a very successful and happy Chef!!
We don't have people often. I do think we should have people over more often because I always enjoy it when we do
by AJ
Not very often, usually for a special occasion. With three little ones to look after, it would totally throw out our night-time routine to have dinner guests. Perhaps when they're a bit older and I don't have to help out with homework quite so much.
No we never have people over due to work schedules, etc. Whenever we have a chance to meet up with friends, we normally end up going out b/c neither of us wants to bother with cooking/cleaning.
I love spontaneous shared meals, I enjoy them more I think than an organised dinner party. There is no pressure or stress, just a coming together and the breaking of bread.
I do invite friends for dinner once in a month over the weekend.
I do enjoy cooking for others, but I don't do it often because my husband and I don't yet have our own place. I imagine that when we do, we'll entertain more often. Good question Finy.

Vee -probably asked it as, as I have got older myself and friends seem to go out less at night! or have visitors and we always did when your age.
by Finy
Or others my age, hehe. I don't go out a whole lot. I also totally get the washing up at night. I'm by myself three to four nights a week as my husband is at work, so I find myself eating cereal or an egg sandwich instead of cooking a 'proper' meal.
by Vee
I enjoy cooking for others, but I do it rarely. I think this is part of hermit-like nature - I have few friends and those I do have are as social as I am. When I cook for others, it normally means I have family over visiting, which is also fun.
Used to, many years' ago. Not now. Too old! Entertained much when younger. Went to SO much trouble buying the best ingredients', cooking, presentation, excellent wines, started sorting menu at minus one month. Was enjoyable sometimes. But quite a few never returned the favour, so things just dwindled. Eventually got down to just a couple of close friends, then after having kids it all totally stopped. No money. No time. Too tired & disinterested. Life had changed to concentrating on children, as it should be.
NO, i'd be to nervous cooking for other people now, but I used to many years ago though.
by Miro
No, I don't get visitors at dinnertime, we used to when I was living at home, and it was annoying.
We don't because we live in a tiny little 'mouse house', so we just have not got the room....but! one day we will have.
Then I will be having many folk over, that's a given. :)
