Full Plate Thursday 9-27-12

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

 We are doing some end of summer canning this week as the production of our Spring and Summer garden is just about over. We have been pulling the non producing garden and getting the soil ready for the winter.  Some of the things we have canned this week are End Of Season Soup and Grandmothers Chow Chow.  The weather is perfect so we can have the doors and windows open to enjoy the fresh air while we can.  I am so excited to see you today and can hardly wait to see what you have to share with us.   Thank you so much for coming today and hope you can come back 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!
