Full Plate Thursday Background Story
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".
I have just a few suggestions before you leave your dish and fill your plate.
  • Link directly to YOUR RECIPE  and not to your web page.  
  • Scroll down to the button that says "click here to enter"
  • You will be asked to give your URL ( which will be your direct link to your post), the name of your recipe, and your email which we will not be able to see.
  • Then you will be asked to select a thumbnail from your post that will be uploaded to your entry.
  • Please include a link back to Full Plate Thursday, somewhere on your post. We will give you a gentle reminder if you forget...
  • Please leave me a comment before you leave the page and let me know that you are here, I want to be a good hostess.
  • Don't forget to visit with all the others, after all that is part of the fellowship that makes it so much fun, in addition to all the good food of course...
  • Grab The Full Plate Button if you like and take it home with you.
  • Now God Bless you and your food and everyone fill your plate!
Thank You So Much For Coming Today and Come Back Soon!

  25. Hello. Happy Thursday! Just linked up a wonderful egg and potatoe dish. Come visit.

  26. Hey Miz Helen! And everybody else! :)

    i'm sharing Rock, Paper, Ingredient Mission: Espresso this week. I made classic tiramisu! Who doesn't love boozy coffee sweetness?!!

  27. Hi Miz Helen-I should not have named my Challah bread Haphazard, because the LINKY did not even let me link up the photo...the second time I tried, it said that the blog owner would have to approve of it!
    The reason I called my Challah Haphazard, because I just knew the amount of the flour in the recipe should be doubled, so I could make two breads or at least one nice large loaf. This mini loaf turned out very nice, but sure wasn't enough!

    Thanks for hosting another wonderful event, with St. Patrick's day around the corner, I see a lot of beautiful Irish inspired recipes!
    Have a wonderful weekend, dear:DDD

  28. Miz Helen I think it's so neat that so many people take the time to comment after linking up here. Most linky parties don't get that kind of response - you must be doing something right :)

    i can’t wait to check out what everyone has on offer this week!

    i’ve linked up my recipe for from-scratch pasta with a lemony ricotta, swiss chard, and caramelized onion filling. hello, heaven :)

  29. Hello Miz Helen! I've shared my grain-free Hot Cross Bun recipe since we're nearing Easter! The post is also a write-up about Allspice, a spice which can be confused with mixed spice. I really enjoyed researching this spice! Have a lovely week and thank you for hosting!

  30. HI Miz Helen!

    I am sharing Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwiches today. If you like Chocolate and Peanut Butter they are awesome. I enjoyed the graham cracker crunch too.

    I goofed cropping my link up picture, so it looks like nothing instead of dessert. Darned computer operator.

  31. Hello Mizz Hellen,

    Happy week!
