Full Plate Thursday 7-20-17 # 337

We are having so much fun here at the cottage this week. Our daughter from Portland is visiting and we are really enjoying her visit. She picked out one of last weeks features to make for lunch and it is fantastic!  We are sure looking forward to seeing what you are sharing today, your food is always the best!
Thanks For The Last 7 Years!
On July 18, 2017 Miz Helen's Country Cottage was 7 years old, I made my "First Post"  on July 18, 2010. So many of you have been a part of our journey from the very beginning and I appreciate you so much! Some of you have become my friends and what a blessing all of you have been in my life. Thank you so much for taking the time to be a part of our life, you have a very special spot in my heart!

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 week. 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".
