Full Plate Thursday 8-10-17 #340

It is August and it's actually raining here, what a nice surprise. Some of the old timers say it will be an early fall, I love all the signs of nature that let us know change is coming. We have some great features from last weeks party that you will sure want to check out. It is "Back To School" time so we have a special Kids Corner Feature. Every week we try some of the awesome recipes that you bring to share with us. You can always find the recipes that we try on our post "Whats For Dinner Next Week" that post every Saturday Morning. I am excited to start the party and see what you will be sharing this week!

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".
