Full Plate Thursday # 297 10-13-16

Welcome to Full Plate Thursday now in our 5th year! We gather here on Thursday to enjoy a wonderful recipe linky exchange with the greatest cooks on the planet and we are so glad that you joined us today! I just returned from a fantastic fall retreat with some amazing women and the food was delicious. Our retreat was in the country at a wonderful retreat facility where we enjoyed relaxation and fellowship with close friends. I always love a time of renewal. Thanks so much for coming today and bringing your fabulous recipes!

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".
