Full Plate Thursday 4-25-13

Full Plate Thursday Where The Greatest Cooks On The Planet Gather

 We are so glad to see you today, come on in and get some hot chocolate, coffee or tea, we have a fire in the fire pit today, I can't believe that we still need a fire in April but when we got up today it was very very cold. After the somber week that we had last week I think that we all are just trying to regroup and spend some extra time with family and friends. It will be nice to visit with all of you today and feel the comfort of our friendship!

 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". 
When you link to Full Plate Thursday, you are giving me permission to use a photo or link from your Post in a feature post on this blog, on Pinterest, or Face Book Every Week, I feature many of your Recipes on the next Full Plate Thursday, and on What's For Dinner Next Week, and I pin many of your recipes to Pinterest.
Please include a link back to Full Plate Thursday somewhere on your post.
Please 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.
Please leave me a comment and let me know you are here, I really do want to be a good hostess.
Now God Bless You and Your Food and Everyone Fill Your Plate! 
 Thank You So Much For Coming Today and Come Back Soon!
