OK, but not "Ich ease beim Haus meiner Eltern"? Why not?

"Beim Haus meiner Eltern" means "near my parents' house". Also, you made a typo: "aß", not "ease".

Another possible translation would be "Ich aß im Haus meiner Eltern", though.

Thanks. I've been having a lot of trouble with that idiom. That helps.

And actually, I think I said "esse" but my computer has been "correcting" my spelling when I'm not looking. I have to figure out how to make it stop doing that. ;-)

"Ich habe bei meinen Eltern zu Hause gegessen" nicht richtig?

Yes, that's another correct solution. Report it if you can so they can add it.

Man kann auch " Ich habe bei meinen Eltern gegessen" sagen.
