Full Plate Thursday 4-14-16 #271

Where The Greatest Cooks On The Planet Gather

Hope you are having a great week, we are having a very busy week in the cottage. I am so grateful that I am a meal planner with meals in the freezer and ready for my kitchen being "out of order" for a week or so. We are making progress and it is starting to look like new, it is amazing what a simple coat of paint can do.I can wait to see what you are bringing to share tonight so I can dream about new things to cook when my kitchen opens up again! Thank you so much for coming today, your visits are always very special to me!

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".
