Full Plate Thursday 8-18-16 #289

After over 20 very hot summer days with no rain, it finally rained and we are so grateful for the rain and the cooler temperatures. It renews our interest in cooking when it is not so hot outdoors and our interest to develop new recipes. Summer is starting to wind down now and we are all beginning to transition into fall with wonderful dishes showing up on our tables.  I can't wait to see the wonderful recipes that you will be sharing with us today so lets get this party started!

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".
