I'm bulking and I have a gap of time in my day (mon - fri) where I can't eat for like 6 hours. So, this is what I do...
I eat around 2000 calories in the mourning(6:00 - 7:00); milk, protein bar, eggs + egg whites, bagel, oatmeal, peanut butter.
Then when I get home (2:30) I eat 1000 calories; protein shake + milk, oatmeal or rice, peanut butter, meat.
Then I work out about an hour or so later, sometimes I have an oatmeal bar right before working out. Then post work out I eat another 1000 calories; protein shake, egg whites, fruit (2 - 3 bananas usually), meat and vegies. Then right before bed I have a glass of milk and some glutamine.
On the weekends I eat 6 - 7 meal consisting of the same kinds of food at about 3500 calories.
Should I eat more / less in the mourning or at night?

i'm not quite sure of your timeline here, but it sounds like you eat most of your food in the morning and early afternoon. I'd put a bit more of it right before bed, since you're not going to be getting anything while you're asleep.
You eat when you can. I eat less cals in the morning and slowly build towards my workouts late at night. Just as long as you get all the cals you need you should be fine. If you need cals during the six hour period bring a shaker with whey, add water when you need it.
