There are four meals a day (in, on, with) an English home: breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner. English breakfast is generally a bigger meal than (at, on, in) the Continent, though some English people like a “continental” breakfast (with, for, of) rolls and butter and coffee. But the usual English breakfast is porridge or “Corn Flakes” (at, with, by) milk or cream and sugar, bacon and eggs, marmalade (with, on, upon) buttered toast and tea or coffee. (To, for, on) a change they can have a boiled egg, cold ham, or perhaps fish.
The usual time (on, to, for) lunch is (about, on, with) one o’clock. The mid-day meal usually consists (with, at, of) two courses – a meat course or poultry (with, upon, at)vegetables and then sweet dish, perhaps fruit pudding (to, with, for) tea or coffee (on, for, to) finish.
(From, at, to) four (at, on, to) five they have a very light meal called afternoon tea or 5 o’clock tea. You can hardly call it a meal. It’s rather occasion (at, in, by) the late afternoon (about, at, upon) which they have a cup (with, of, into) tea and a cake or a biscuit.
Some people have the so-called “high-tea”. It’s a meal taken between five and six if dinner is not taken (in, at, on) the evening. Usually it’s a more substantial meal than afternoon tea.
Dinner is the fourth meal (at, of, in) the day. The usual time is (about, on, in) 7 o’clock. Dinner usually consists (into, of, by) soup, fish or meat (with, on, for) vegetables – potatoes, green beans, carrot and cabbage, sweet pudding, fruit salad, ice-cream or cheese and biscuits. Then (upon, after, at) a talk they have black or white coffee.
This is the order (about, with, of) meals among English families. But the greater part (of, to, about) the people has dinner (at, on, in) the middle (on, of, at) the day instead (of, in, at) lunch. They have tea a little later – between 5 and 6 o’clock, and then (after, in, on) the evening, before going (in, to, on) bed, they have supper.
So the four meals (in, at, of) the day are either breakfast, dinner, tea, supper; or breakfast, lunch, tea, dinner.
