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. What a sweet shoutout for me, Helen. I am so glad you liked my post. That dinner was like *going home* for me, too. My momma always made the best fried chicken...and gravy...and...well, everything she made was so good. No matter if I go exactly by her recipes, mine NEVER tastes as good as hers did. Why is that?
    Thanks so much and you better believe I am taking that pretty red plate home to live on my sidebar...:))

  10. Thank you for hosting.
    I have a page on my site that lists more than 250 hops, memes, and photo challenges… some for each day of the week. Yours is listed there. Check under the header for the link to that page. I’ve also started a BlogFrog community that focuses on hops, carnivals, memes, and photo challenges. Go to http://theblogfrog.com/1504201 to visit & participate.

  11. Thanks for always leaving the nicest comments. My family and I are fine...just way too busy lately it seems. The end of the school year is always extremely busy no matter what adjustments I try to make for that. Yesterday was my first no-school day. It was so nice just to relax.

  12. Summertime dinners really need some potato salad, so here's a variation on my mother's recipe. I subbed some agave nectar for the little bit of sugar, and added some bacon for variety. It would go really well with some of the pickles from your pickle pot!

  13. Miz Helen, thank you for hostessing... I brought a sweet treat to share!

  14. My gosh it all looks so good. I need to start cooking tomorrow for my family reunion this Saturday and what good ideas posted today
