Does your evening prep/cook routine change with the arrival of Standard time? (x AZ and HI)

I adjust to the earlier arrival of darkness with more lighting but still generally plan for grocery consumption in the 7-8 PM (EST) hour (as has been the case for many years).  Others?

    Brother Cap, nothing really changes for me as far as doing things. With that said I prefer this time 100 to 1 over the other time. I just seem to feel better. Always preferred standard time. 

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    No, not really. The only time I notice any change is like tonight that cocktail hour seemingly started an hour later…but I guess that was OK as it started an hour earlier this Spring! 

    Some things in life kinda balance out don’t they?

    @RRP- I get it but if timing by daylight, you can grab an extra hour now!   :)

    I hear you, but I worked my butt off this afternoon blowing leaves and mowing my grass down short! Also picked up and burnt a bunch of sticks

    Me too. Just leave it at DST year round. As for a routine schedule, I have none. More often than not, I eat dinner after dark even in mid summer.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

  • Had pendant lights installed over my grills in late spring while new landscape lighting was being installed.   I’m finally getting to use them!

    I don't understand the controversy. Some like Daylight, some like Standard. I say compromise. Next spring we move our clocks ahead 1/2 hour. Everybody will be happy!. Yeah, right, everybody will be pissed. This country can't compromise on anything.

    Nope, daylight savings time does not impact when I eat dinner or breakfast.  It does impact my meeting times with clients though.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    Proud and vocal Vegan.  I don't see why an animal should lose their life, just so you can have a snack.

    In a country such as this, where there are fruits, grains, and nuts in abundance, how can one think that he must eat the flesh of dead animals?
