Full Plate Thursday 8-3-17 #339

It is time to bring your awesome recipes to the screen porch, get a nice glass of ice cold tea and sit under the fan with us, it's August in Texas! We are rounding out our garden for the season and starting some of the end of season canning projects, be sure and look for our Preserving and Canning Features. Some folks are already getting ready for back to school days and others are on their vacations right before this summer comes to an end. We have a special Kids Corner Features, that gives lots of great ideas for back to school. I sure am looking forward to seeing what you will be sharing with us today, 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 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".
