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".

Baked Sandwich

I was having a very informal luncheon for some of my oldest friends recently and a couple of them ask if I would make my Baked Sandwich. I thought that was a great idea, and then I decided to share it with all of you. The Baked Sandwich is often times requested from family and friends as one of their favorites. It is a great dish to make for a small gathering, it can be made the day before and cooked right before the guest arrive, it is a hot dish to serve that you don't have to be in the kitchen with, but rather can be spending time with your guest. One of the nice features to this sandwich is that you can freeze it up to 3 months, just reheat it and it's as good as freshly made. I will often times freeze it in individual portions, for those times when just one or two people need a quick lunch.

Quiet Time


When you are traveling to our cottage the first thing you will notice when you come to our road is our flag that fly's everyday at the edge of our property. The privilege to fly that flag and to be free to speak to you today has been given to us by the sacrifices of so many men, women and their families through the years. We are stopping today for a Quiet Time to remember all those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.


For more years than I want to count, I have been a Military and Firefighter Mom of Three Sons, one Daughter, Two Daughters-In Law, Two Sons -In Law, and Two Grandsons In Law, who have proudly served their country. We personally know the sacrifices that families make on a daily basis to ensure our continued freedom. We are so grateful that we have not had to give that ultimate sacrifice, but we are so proud to be able to hang 3 Blue Stars in our window that represent the 3 active duty family members that are presently serving our country.


From Psalms 91: 1-4
"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty
I will say to the Lord, My refuge and my fortress My God in whom I trust
For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence
He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you may seek refuge,
His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark"
Peace and Joy

Don't you just love this time of the year when we start to dust off the patio furniture and grills getting ready for the opening holiday of summer.

I will be sharing on of our family favorites today, The Picnic Cake. There are so many fantastic summer dishes that will be coming to all of our tables and I can't wait to see what you are bringing to share with us today!
