I am so glad to see you today, it is a really busy time getting the children back in school, wrapping up the summer and getting into the fall flow of life.  Nature begins to change the plants and the animals begin to take on a different pattern, and seems like we are the last to change as I always want to just hang on to a little bit more of the summer. But here we are going into the last week of August, so lets lift our Iced Tea glasses to a great summer!  I can't wait to see what wonderful recipe you have brought to share with us today, so lets get it on the table it's time to eat!

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".
 When you link to Full Plate Thursday, you are giving me permission to use a photo or link from your Post in a feature post on this blog, on Pinterest, or Face Book and other social media. Every Week, I feature many of your Recipes on the next Full Plate Thursday, What's For Dinner Next Week, and I pin the entire party to a dedicated page and many of your individual recipes to Pinterest.
Please include a link back to Full Plate Thursday somewhere on your post.
Please 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.

 Thank You For Coming Today and Come Back Soon!
