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!

  18. Hi Miz Helen --
    So many delicious-looking dishes here already! I've brought Butternut Squash Baked with Apple-Walnut-Cinnamon Stuffing. It's an old favorite of mine, but it's also gluten-free, egg-free and meatless. It can also be casein-free, dairy-free and lactose-free. And, because it uses agave nectar and apples for sweetening, it's low glycemic and refined sugar-free.

  19. Hi Miz Helen
    I linked to my No-Bake CheeseCake with Marshmallows and chocolate surprises
    and to my Cauliflower-onion-cheese tart
    thanks for hosting!!
    I'm going to check now all these wonderful dishes

  22. Miz Helen,

    I linked a colorful yam and apple casserole that is gluten free and no sugar added. Perfect for lowfat Thanksgiving casserole.

  23. Thanks for Hosting! So many wonderful recipes from you and everyone. Pat

  24. Hi Miz Helen--thanks so much for hosting. I contributed a Mushroom and Arugula Soup with Ravioli; it's a great way to stretch the ravioli which can be costly depending on where you shop. And the arugula adds a nice spicy touch.
