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!

  15. Hi Miz Helen, I'm so glad that cool front came your way! It's a little cooler up here in Ohio, lately, too, so I guess we'll be raking leaves soon. For the table today I've brought a quick and frugal dish of Creamed Tuna -- I've been known to have it on the table for dinner in 15 minutes or less, and my family loves it. (This version is also GF, but they don't notice that.) It's good for a hot meal on those busy evenings when there's not much time to cook.

  16. Good Morning Miz Helen...
    Thank you for hosting this awesome blog hop. The brisk Fall weather is upon us and there's nothing like warming up with a nourishing bowl of homemade soup. This week I'm offering a recipe for Split Pea, Lentil & Barley Soup. It's hearty and will stick to your ribs on those cool Autumn or cold Winter days. It's also vegan friendly as it contains no meat, meat stock or meat broth.
    Hope you all enjoy!!

  17. Thank you for hosting again this week! Have a good day :)
