Full Plate Thursday

Welcome to First Full Plate Thursday, I am so excited to host you today! I just know that we will have a great time together.I can't wait to see what you have brought over for us to enjoy. Thank you so much for coming today...and we hope to see you every week.

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".

I have just a few suggestions before you leave your dish and fill your plate.
  • Link directly to your recipe and not to your web page
  • Scroll down to the button that says "click here to enter"
  • You will be asked to give your URL ( which will be your direct link to your post), the name of your recipe, and your email which we will not be able to see.
  • Then you will be asked to select a thumbnail from your post that will be uploaded to your entry.
  • Please include a link back to Full Plate Thursday, somewhere on your post. We will give you a gentle reminder if you forget...
  • Please leave me a comment before you leave the page and let me know that you are here, I want to be a good hostess.
  • Don't forget to visit with all the others, after all that is part of the fellowship that makes it so much fun, in addition to all the good food of course...
  • Grab The Full Plate Button if you like and take it home with you.
  • Now God Bless you and your food and everyone fill your plate!

  9. What a wonderful idea to share food with your friends! I've brought some cod fillets sauteed in olive oil with garlic, onions and peppers -- one of our favorites, and easy to cook up and put on the table.

  30. This is a wonderful idea. I gather it is closed now. At least, I don't see a linky. I will look again.

    I am thankful it is on Thursday, not Friday. I don't get to go to the Friday links because it is such a busy day for me.

  31. Oops, I see you are not open yet. Sorry, I misunderstood.

    Do you have the HTML for your badge? I can put it on one of my blogs without it but I need it for the other.

    Please let me know.
