Full Plate Thursday 3-3-11

Welcome to Full Plate Thursday! I sure am happy that all of you could come over today. We are going to have so much good food and I can hardly wait to see what you have brought today. Thank you for coming and enjoy your day!

What happened to all the Thumbnail's and all the beautiful photo's of your food?
As most of you may know, Brent Riggs at Linky Tools,  has been converting the thumbnail portion of linky to a larger server to accommodate the growing traffic. In the millions of thumbnails that were transferred yesterday more than three fourths of  Full Plate Thursday thumbnails files were lost in the conversion. Brent has converted the list to basic for just this week. I am so sorry that this has happened, I know how hard all of you work on your photo's to get just the right light and just the right angle, and then which one shall I use. I hope that next week we will have our lovely thumbnails once again...Thank you so much for you understanding and support with this technical error. I hope that you will visit some of the great blog's and enjoy all this great food. I hope to see you next week!

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!
