Happy 3 Year Anniversary To Miz Helen's Country Cottage!

 I am so glad to see you today, it is a very special day here at the Cottage.

So many of you have been a part of this journey from the very beginning.  The friendships that have been made along the way, sharing our lives with each other.  I truly do look forward to seeing you here at the cottage whenever you can stop by whether it is for Full Plate Thursday or to check out The Menu every week, say hello to Max or just take a look at the newest recipe.  Your support for me has been amazing and it continues to touch my heart with every comment that you make.   Thank you so much for being a part of my journey, I love you and am giving each one of you a big hug!!

 Background Story For Full Plate Thursday
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.
Thank You For Coming Today and Come Back Soon!

    Thank you for being such a gracious and lovely hostess at Full Plate Thursday. I always love linking up here.

    Today I shared Lemon Pound Cake Pudding. It helps control appetite and stimulate weight loss as well as reduce the craving for chips, fries, and other greasy foods (which I'm a sucker for!). It's a cool and slimming snack on a hot summer day.
