Full Plate Thursday 6-14-12

It's Full Plate Thursday Where All The Greatest Cooks On The Planet Gather

I will have to share this funny little story about what happened last week.   I was trying so hard last week to let you know that I would be busy with my Annual picnic and wouldn't be by to say hello until latter, that I sent the first 26 of you an email saying I was attending my Granddaughters graduation which had happened  several weeks ago, I am so sorry you got the wrong email. Thankfully I caught the mistake and the rest of you knew that we were having our Annual Picnic and I would be by to say hello latter.   
Has something like that ever happened to any of you, please tell me I am not the only one.  
We are just taking it easy this week and enjoying the beautiful weather we are having right now, having lots of early morning porch time. Come on back and join us we have got the best ice cold herb tea and some awesome Berry Patch Muffins to share today. I can't wait to see what you have to share today so lets get right to it. I am so excited that you came by today and thank you so much for sharing with us, hope to see you again real soon!

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!


  1. Thank you for stopping by my blog.
    I hope you don't mind my linking up--I can't resist a good party!
    Thank you for hosting.

  2. Hi Miz Helen, did you get bad storms this evening? Our son's house in Dallas has lots of broken windows and their cars' windows are completely smashed by the hail. He sent me pics. Anyway, thanks so much for hosting and always being such a gracious hostess! xox

  3. Many thanks for having me today. Hope you have a yummy week!

    Best wishes,

    PS I haven't sent an email like you did but I did end a phone conversation with a complete stranger with the words "Love You" because that is how I end most of my phone conversation to my family! That was very embarrassing!

  4. Hi, Miz Helen..your full plate last week sounds delicious.

    Yes, I am ALWAYS doing something goofy..just this week, I've been working on a post for a Beach Tablesetting that I THOUGHT was for today but, it's not until NEXT week. Bummer...all that work....:))
    So, see, you "ain't the only one, baby."
    Now, Natasha's goofy moment WOULD be embarrassing! hahhaaaa

  5. Miz Helen, I think it's so wonderful that you take time to comment on all your visitors, and that you took time to send out the email when you had such a busy weekend was so thoughtful of you, not a problem that it got mixed up a little!
