Full Plate Thursday Where The Greatest Cooks On The Planet Gather

Do you feel a certain pressure to hurry and get all the summer things done?  Along about the second or third week in August I always sit down and access the summer list and try to prioritize the remainder of the items on the list, there is never enough time.  Lot's of folks are getting children ready to start back to school and packing in last minute vacation's before the school life begins again.  Some are getting ready to begin the fall church and civic season, we just feel that change coming.  I sure am glad you were able to take out time from your life today and sit for a while with us to enjoy some good food and fellowship.  Let's get in your basket and see what you have brought to share today, I'm hungry aren't you?

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 and other social media.
Every Week, I feature many of your Recipes on the next Full Plate Thursday, What's For Dinner Next Week, and I pin the entire party to a dedicated page and many of your individual 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!
