Full Plate Thursday 8-31-17 # 343

I am so happy to welcome you to Full Plate Thursday today, reminding us how important a community is. Just knowing that your community is there for you in the good and bad times. In times of great need we often times turn to our faith and food for comfort. As I write this post so many folks on our Gulf Coast have lost everything they have in Hurricane Harvey and others have lost it all in the flood waters in and around the Houston area. Our thoughts and prayers go out to our fellow Texans struggling with this horrible tragedy today and for a very long journey to recovery in the future.

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".
