Full Plate Thursday 8-4-16 # 287

Welcome to Full Plate Thursday where The Greatest Cooks On The Planet Gather on Thursdays. Some of the best recipes on the internet show up at this gathering and I am so glad to see all of you today! The August heat has arrived in Texas and we are real busy here at the cottage to get our garden vegetables harvested, canned and preserved. All these canned goods will sure be good when the snow is on the ground next winter. I can't wait to hear what you have been doing and what you are sharing 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".
