I am so excited to see you today!  We are celebrating here at The Cottage, our lake is full for the first time in about 4 years and our Pear Trees are blooming,Spring is here! I love cooking Spring dishes, so fresh and light. I can't wait to see what great dishes you will be sharing with us today.  I am sharing a little surprise dessert that I made for my husband and all of you of course!

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".
