Full Plate Thursday Where The Greatest Cooks On The Planet Gather

Hello March!
We have had so much fun this week, it has actually been warm enough for us to work in the gardens and yard.  Isn't nice to be able to go out and enjoy nature after being all cozy in the house for awhile. We even had a little help from our little dog Max.

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".

  30. Hi Miz Helen--So great to share on Full Plate Thursdays again. I always look forward to the great assortment of recipes. I'm experimenting with mushrooms lately and since the mushroom grower said to "keep it simple with lion's main because they have a mild flavor," I shared Lion's Mane Mushrooms and Spinach.

  31. PS--I forgot to say what an adorable picture of little Max. Could he be digging to China?

  32. Great recipes here! Max looks like the best helper anyone could have. He's adorable! We just had another 10' snow a couple of days ago and I can't remember the last time I saw dirt.
