Crossword Genius

Lame sort of dinner, say (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

meal

'dinner say' is the definition.
(I know that dinner is a type of meal)

'lame sort' is the wordplay.
'sort' is an anagram indicator.
'lame' is an anagram of 'MEAL'.

'of' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for meal that I've seen before include "Eg, dinner or tea" , "Breakfast, dinner or tea" , "Eg, breakfast" , "Ground grain or pulses" , "Lame (anag.)" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
