PKA, Peachy has described many times how busy her kids lives are with school, after school activities and their social lives (you know how funny her ds son is now and all his friends). My child goes straight from school to practice but does eat something right before. That does not mean they are not hungry. I have a snack at 3pm every day too but am still hungry for dinner at 5.

That doesn't mean they are busy every single solitary day, now does it?  If you eat dinner at 5 and your dd doesn't get home until 5.30, how are you sitting down as a family each night?  Why are you backpedalling from "starving" to hungry?

"But yet you can't imagine having a homecooked dinner on the table cooked by kids in an hour? I think there are a lot of experiences that you can't imagine, based on your posts. There seems to be a general confusion on when families do things differently thatn how you do things, that shows a lack of imagination." Beef Stew in an hour? That seems like too short of a time to make it. How long does it take you to make Beef Stew? --unless of course it comes from a can and it takes MUCH less time :)

"In reference to what? Can you use the quote feature so I can figure out what you are talking about when you bring things out of right field?" Simple black and white answer PKA...do you work full time?

It's not a simple black and white answer, that is why I asked the revleance of your question.  Speaking of simple black and white answers, can you go back and answer the questions asked about your obesity comments?

"Why do you find what people eat (or don't eat) in a homeless shelter funny?" Wow PKA you sure know how to twist words around. I wasn't laughing at people eating in a homeless shelter funny. I was laughing at how someone would consider one piece of bread with pb a meal when they are so adamant of telling everyone how they volunteer in homeless shelters.

I have known most of the people on this board long enough to know that when they say "cook", they mean cook, and if they really mean "heat up", then that's what they'll say.

I went ahead, though, and Googled a few beef stew recipes, just to get a range of cook times.  The recipes I saw had cooking times that ranged from 30 minutes to 12 hours...so it can happen.

"Maybe rules are optional in her household?" Like the Beatles much PKA? (twist and shout). You ARE the queen lol

I'm beginning to wonder if the question mark is somehow disappearing on the screen.  Can anyone else see that I'm asking a question?  Given that you quoted a rule and stated that it was an option, it's a pretty fair question.  Given that you had a hard time understanding options last night, it's a fair question.  I'm curious as to why the question mark is not showing up....hmmm.

Well as I explained in my previous post to you, I can make beef stew in less than an hour if I am prepared and no can is involved.

Maybe you missed it. I am hungry at 5, I leave work at 5, we sit down for dinner at 5:30 (dinner is usually almost ready by the time I get home).

Then perhaps you might want to look at your placement of your many lol's.  I still wonder why you are laughing out loud at an experience different than yours.  I don't find laughing at the differences of other people kind, but your mileage may vary of course.

We all know that you do not work full time PKA. Not sure why it is a secret. You have "boasted" before about having a "flexible" schedule and being able to pick your kids up from school. Why can't you just answer the question?
