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!
Thank You So Much For Coming Today and Come Back Soon!

  10. Hi Miz Helen
    Thank you for another party
    Enjoy the last week of your vacation :)

  11. Hello. This is my first time linking up here. I'm glad to have found your website - quite a few yummy looking treats!

    I shared some buttery peanut-less brittle made with sunflower and pumpkin seeds. Recipe is free of the top 8 most common food allergens (including nuts, dairy, and gluten).

    Thanks for hosting!

  15. Thanks so much for hosting Miz Helen. We really appreciate all you do for us.

    I've brought a special treat today - Pheasant eggs on sausage toasts. This is my first experience with using tiny eggs and they were a very exciting find.

  16. Hi Miz Helen --

    Once again, your table has a fascinating variety of luscious dishes! Today I've brought Kale Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette, which also happens to be GF, CF, nut-free and refined sugar-free (it has honey in it). Of course, kale is a superfood -- SO healthy! -- and its bold flavor goes especially well with the sweet and tangy dressing and other vegetables.

    I hope you're enjoying your R & R!

  17. I hope you enjoy your last week of R & R! We still have two weeks to go before school starts. We're going to hit all the museums and places that were "too crowded" during the summer!
    Thanks for hosting!

  24. Hi Miz Helen
    Thank you for hosting this blog hop. It's a great source of recipes and ideas.
    Today, I'm sharing a recipe for Kimchi. It is a very flavorful refreshing dish that can be served with virtually anything. I use it instead of cole slaw. It's very beneficial for digestive health as it provides probiotics and enzymes. Hope you all enjoy!!

  25. A lot of wonderful recipes. I will have to come back to visit them all. smiles.

  26. Enjoy your time out. While you are resting, I'll be sampling some of the recipes.

  27. Gidday Miz Helen! Well, its starting to get warmer here (high 80's forecast today for our 2nd last week of winter) so my baking recipes might becoming few and far between soon so I thought I'd share my latest 2 cakes with you. Hope things are finally cooling down for y'all.
