Celebrations for St. Patrick's Day are well underway and Spring Breaks are a great break from it all. We always enjoy St. Patrick's Day here, and it gives our family an opportunity to reflect on our Irish roots. I am sharing my Irish Grandma's Irish Blackberry Crumble Cake with all of you today and sure hope you enjoy it.I am so excited to see all of you today and can't wait to see what you have brought to share with us today.

The 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".
Party Guidelines

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.
Irish Blessing
May the road
rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft
upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you
in the palm of His hand.
