Background Story For Full Plate Thursday
When we were young and just starting out in life sometimes we did not have a lot of money. Most of our friends were having to stretch the dollars at the end of the month just like us. My girlfriends and I decided that we would pool our food for some of the evening meals right before payday... the last week of the month. I have some of the fondest memories from those days. We would all bring our food together and we had some great food and great fellowship. We would get the food on the table and everything ready, someone would bless the food and then the hostess would say "come fill your plate".

Ruben Potato Salad

I have been going through some of my older family recipes and saw this favorite. This potato salad is just filled with flavor and is a great side dish for a family meal or take to a covered dish event. I have made this potato salad for years and although it is a great winter time salad it is good all year round. It is delicious served hot or cold and is one of those dishes that the longer it sets the better it gets. We just love this potato salad and sure hope that you will too.

Meatballs In Red Cabbage Sauce

This awesome cabbage was just waiting to be picked from the garden this morning. I love taking a walk in the garden and coming back into the kitchen to create a brand new recipe. This recipe is a take off from a stuffed cabbage roll in a fantastic sauce. This dish has the best flavor and we served it over rice but it would be great with mashed potatoes. I just love having the cabbage dishes this month it always reminds me of my Irish heritage. I think that my Irish Grandmother would have loved this dish, we sure did and hope you will too.

Chicken and Veggie Cobbler

We love cobbler here at the cottage so why not combine some awesome chicken and veggies to make this wonderful cobbler. The fresh veggies and chicken are covered with a rich sauce and baked with a southern buttermilk biscuit with bacon. This is a hardy and comforting dish for a family meal or take it to a covered dish event. Left over, it tasted better the next day and freezes well for up to 1 month. Our family and friends have just loved this dish and sure hope you enjoy it!

Chicken Taco Stew

Tex Mex and Southwest flavors are a staple here at the cottage and this Chicken Taco Stew diffidently  has a blend of these flavors.  This is a great stew that is easy to make and can be on the table in a short time, or left to simmer it just gets better.  I keep packages of chopped chicken in the freezer just for a recipe like this.  I package the freezer bags with 3 cups of chopped chicken which most, soups, stews, and casseroles call for.  It is also excellent for topping a salad.  We love this stew and hope you will enjoy it.
