We are having so much fun here at the cottage our Granddaughter Lauren and Great Granddaughter Ella June are here for a summer visit, I am cherishing every moment. We are doing some special summer time cooking here and I know that most of you are as well. I can't wait to see what you are sharing today, so lets get it on the table, I hungry aren't you?

Because my precious Granddaughters are here for a couple of weeks I may not be able to comment on every one of your post as I usually do.

Background Story On 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".
