 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!

  1. Hi Miz Helen! I hope you're having a good week. Thank you so much for hosting your wonderful party and taking the time to comment to all of us. You're the best! xo

  2. Happy Belated Birthday! I hope it was wonderful and that God blesses you with many more years of love, health and happiness! :-) I, too, am so excited about the baby's birth. Two years ago my children and I got up early to see his parents get married, just as I did 32 years ago when William's parents got married.

    I am sharing my daughter's Chocolate & Nutella Cookie Caterpillars this week. They were as cute as they were tasty!

    Enjoy the rest of your week! Many blessings, Lisa
