Full Plate Thursday 7-20-16 # 285

Welcome to Full Plate Thursday, it is good to surround ourselves with friends and family at this time in our world. During times of turmoil food becomes a very important part of the peace and comfort that comes to folks as we process and heal from the tragedy that may have been surrounding us. We have the greatest cooks that bring such fantastic food to our party every week and I count all of you as my friends and thank you so much for coming today.

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".
