Full Plate Thursday 2-10-11

Welcome to Full Plate Thursday, I am so happy that you came today and I can hardly wait to see what you have brought.  Last week some of us were snowed in together and others were unable to get through the snow and ice. We had rolling electric black outs all day, but we had a great time together, we had great food and great fellowship that warmed our heart and our Cottage.

Full Plate Thursday Background Story
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".
I have just a few suggestions before you leave your dish and fill your plate.
  • Link directly to your recipe and not to your web page
  • Scroll down to the button that says "click here to enter"
  • You will be asked to give your URL ( which will be your direct link to your post), the name of your recipe, and your email which we will not be able to see.
  • Then you will be asked to select a thumbnail from your post that will be uploaded to your entry.
  • Please include a link back to Full Plate Thursday, somewhere on your post. We will give you a gentle reminder if you forget...
  • Please leave me a comment before you leave the page and let me know that you are here, I want to be a good hostess.
  • Don't forget to 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...
  • Grab The Full Plate Button if you like and take it home with you.
  • Now God Bless you and your food and everyone fill your plate!


  1. Thanks for hosting, Miz Helen! Just wondering, do you actually make all those dishes that you listed in the post? If so, wow, I am are trying lots of new recipes every week. Bet it impresses your family too! I made 4 new recipes this week (I posted two) - it's fun to try new things. My daughter lives in Houston and she told me about the rolling blackouts. I'd never heard of them before. Take care!
    Blessings, Beth

  2. Hi Miz Helen! My parents and some other relatives live in Houston and they experienced rolling blackouts, as well. Thank you so much for hosting this wonderful party. I brought my Shepherd's Pie Chowdah today. It's guaranteed to warm you up during all of this winter weather. Stay warm and take care! Candace
