Full Plate Thursday 7-14-11

I am so glad to see you today, Welcome to Full Plate Thursday!  We are trying to stay out of the heat, the temperatures have been unusually high. We have to do all our gardening very early in the morning or very late in the evening. We have been having a great harvest and canning everything that we can get to the kitchen. I am so excited to see what you have brought to share with us today. Thank you so much for coming today and I sure hope you will come back real soon! Stay cool and drink plenty of water during this heat.

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!

  2. Gidday Miz Helen! Hope you've had a great week. Here's my submissions for the week. Have a Lamb & Chorizo in the slow cooker now so hopefully I'll get to post about it before your Linky party ends but if not, it can go on next week. (Chilli is probably the last thing you guys are thinking of over there in the heat! LOL) Been a cold winter for us here in Australia.

    Thanks for hosting!
