Dinner Be Served (Page Three)
It's the only time we can get everyone in a single location!!! Special thanks to Marilyn Bailey who makes sure we have great things to eat!
Did you know? - Originally, dinner referred to the first meal of a two-meal day, a heavy meal occurring about noon, which broke the night's fast in the new day. The word is from the Old French (ca 1300) disner, meaning "breakfast", from the stem of Gallo-Romance desjunare ("to break one's fast"), from Latin dis- ("undo") + Late Latin jejunare ("to fast"), from Latin jejunus ("fasting, hungry"). Eventually, the term shifted to referring to the heavy main meal of the day, even if it had been preceded by a breakfast meal. The (lighter) meal following dinner has traditionally been referred to as supper.
Did you know? - The word pitcher comes from the 13th century Middle English word picher, which means earthen jug. The word picher is linked to the old French word pichier which is the altered version of the word bichier, meaning drinking cup. The pitcher’s origin goes as far back to the Medieval Latin word bicarium from the Greek word bikos which meant earthen vessel.
