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!

  20. Dear Miz Helen,
    Thank you so much for featuring my Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe. I just made a batch for my children this morning. My son had a big test today so last night he requested biscuits, scrambled eggs, sausage, and orange juice. Luckily, it's my day off. "Brain Food!" he said.

  21. Thanks for the invitation to participate.

    Blessings, Elizabeth

  22. Hi Miz Helen! Thanks so much for sharing my book with your readers! It was a labor of love, wasn't it?

    The food looks great...can't wait to fill my plate, too.

    Much love,

  23. Dear Miz Helen,
    Your party table looks so appetizing, I wish I had room for a taste of everything! My contribution this week is Lasagna with Spinach, which was my version of comfort food during this cold week we've had. I'm glad to report that even here in NE Ohio, the ice and snow are melting fast -- it's in 50's already this morning. I'm hoping to see our snowdrops blooming when the snow finishes melting from over them :-)

    I ordered Amy's book, and it's supposed to be on its way. I can hardly wait to see it!

    Thanks and hugs!

  24. Thank you for hosting Miz Helen! I've brought one of our family favourites - Escalopes Milanese.

  25. Thanks so much for featuring my Spicy Cornbread Casserole. Great recipes here today. Thanks for hosting!

  26. Hello Miz Helen! This is my first time here at Full Plate Thursday. Thank you so much for having me! I shared a recipe for Peppery Cheese Bread that has an option to soak the flour - it is very yummy! Can't wait to come back next week - LeAnne

    Thanks for hosting!

  32. By the way, I grabbed the "I was featured on" button and it wouldn't link back to your site. I ended up removing the ".jpg" from the URL and it works now (I think, let me know if it doesn't). Thanks!
