1. You’ll sometimes eat dessert for dinner.
I remember the first time my host mother served me ovocné knedlíky — fluffy dumplings filled with fruit (usually berries, or plums), topped with melted butter, powdered sugar, and a side of sour cream. And then there is palačinky, their version of pancakes/crepes, which can be served savory but still taste sweet to me. These dishes are perfectly acceptable dinner options, and helped me not feel so ashamed at having a slice of cake for dinner occasionally.
