Ummm I am in the minority and I don't think this is rude. I agree with PP that I would think it was more their way of not expecting you to cook them dinner. In their situation i would have assumed you guys would have had dinner by that time...
lol I have someone that does this - comes to my house to visit on lunch time with take away for themselves and sits there and eats it in front in me and the kids. It's not I expect them to shout me a free lunch. But as someone else said, either ring ahead and ask if I want something (I would give them $$), eat before they come or after they go.
I'm glad this has been posted as it annoys me and I'm always wondering if I was just being difficult lol
I used to get so embarrassed every time we visited the grandparents when the little ones would be complaining for food. So now I stop at a fruit shop on the way and take a bag of fruit in with me. That way when the kids ask, I give them food. (I offer some to the grandparents also, but they always refuse.)
I dont think its rude because you have a new baby. I think its rude because they should have eaten it before they had arrived or rang ahead and asked if you wanted any etc.
I hace had people do this to us before, but I never expect anything but stupidity from them.
