Background Story On 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".

  20. Good morning, Miz Helen, and thank you so much for including my summer soup on your menu! Such a treat to see it there today :)
    We had our holiday, Canada Day, on July 1 and celebrated it much the same way you folks do in the states. We had a lot of thunderstorms rolling in and out but made the best of it.
    I imagine that your family picnics are quite special and the food would be incredible! Have a wonderful holiday!
