Full Plate Thursday Where The Greatest Cooks On The Planet Gather

Happy August Ya'll

 August, its here already and here comes the heat.  We have been so blessed so far this summer, we have had the coolest summer in years and have enjoyed every minute of it.  The rain is a different thing, we haven't had enough and our churches are starting to pray for rain.  Here at the cottage we are wrapping  up the harvest and beginning to think about the fall garden.  I am so happy that you could come out today and enjoy this beautiful day with us here in the country.  We have the tables set up near the upstairs patio today under the trees where it is really cool.  Lets get  your food on the table, I can't wait to see what you have brought to share today.

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, 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!

  16. It's hard to believe it's August already! We've had a really few weeks in England - unusually for us it's been very sunny and hot for several days in a row. My husband and I are in Canada with our son this week and it's been a bit of everything, sunny, cloudy and even rainy. I hope you get some rain soon. Thank you for hosting Full Plate Thursday. I've shared my seriously quick and easy Peach and Raspberry (or blueberry) Cobbler. It's as easy to make as muffins! x

  17. Hi Miz Helen,
    After our heat wave we have been unusually cool in New York, not much rain here either. Our garden didn't do well thanks to critters, not the weather. Glad to hear your harvest went well. Thanks again for the party.

  18. Thanks for hosting Miz Helen. I hope you will get rain soon. So glad you summer harvest went well.

  19. Happy Thursday Miz Helen and thanks so much for hosting this week!
