    Default Wdyt?

    If you were invited to a lunch time BBQ (in-laws, small amount extended family, including a few children) and were told to come at 12pm, what time would you expect lunch to be served, or there to be some food available?

    I would expect to eat about 1 pm-ish, 2pm would be pushing it with kids unless there were nibblies and it were made clear it was casual timing.

    12.30ish maybe 1, since having kids this would be more important to me because the kids like to eat at lunch time

    Nibbles on arrival, eat by 1/1:30. At my parents you would be lucky to eat by three! I always feed DS before we go so he doesn't fill up on nibbles (like me haha)

    Invite stated 12 than I think lunch would be served at 1. With maybe a few chips or something served before that.

    If I invited people at 12 for lunch I would have some nibbles for before/after and hope to get food on the table by 12:30 - particularly if there are children. Would probably have food ready for afternoon tea too as people are unlikely to leave as soon as lunch is over.

    Thanks everyone!

    This was actually something that happened on the weekend, we were invited around and TBH I was probably not in the most relaxed frame of mine with being exhausted from the pregnancy and having a teething toddler who was missing her nap time to be there in tow!

    There were some adult appropriate nibbles but nothing really for the kids or the pregnant woman, (which didn't bother me so much as I don't expect to be catered for specifically for snacks).

    By 1pm DD was cranky and hungry so I ended up feeding her a lunch of sorts a little after with some of her snacks I had bought with me just in case.

    By 2pm there was still no sign of anything lunch being close by and DH and I decided to bail a short time later...

    So I was mainly checking to see if we were being completely unreasonably with our expectations or not!

    See I like to have people arrive just before I serve food so I'm not stuck in the kitchen when they get there so if it were my BBQ I would have lunch ready by 12.30 with very light snacks available on arrival - but I probably wouldn't notice at someone else's house unless it was maybe 1.30 or when I got hungry but my SIL is notorious for always starting lunch late so I always take snacks to her place !
