Full Plate Thursday 7-14-16 # 284

Hello everyone, it is so good to see you today, come on back to the porch, we are gathering on the cool porch and we will enjoy watching the beautiful birds while we all gather. We had some wonderful grilled chicken, fresh buttered squash and fresh fried okra for lunch today and my husband said, "now that is comfort food and that's what we need today", it sure was good and I agree that sometimes we really need comfort food.I can't wait to try what you are bringing to share with us today!

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".
