Here are some examples of what dinner might consist of:

  1. A protein source like grilled chicken, fish, or steak
  2. A starch like rice, pasta, or potatoes
  3. A vegetable or salad, like steamed broccoli or a mixed greens salad
  4. A sauce or dressing, like a tomato sauce or vinaigrette

Here are some similar things to dinner:

  1. Lunch - a midday meal that is often less formal than dinner and typically consists of lighter fare
  2. Brunch - a late morning meal that combines elements of breakfast and lunch
  3. Supper - a less formal evening meal that is often simpler than dinner and may consist of leftovers or sandwiches
  4. Banquet - a large and formal meal, often for a special occasion or celebration, that typically consists of multiple courses and elaborate dishes.
