Full Plate Thursday 2-16-12

I am so excited to see you today, welcome to Full Plate Thursday! I hope that there wasn't to much ice on the bridge when you come out today. The lake always looks real pretty in the winter, but sometimes that bridge can be a little slick. We have a big pot of Apple Cider and a pot of Vegetable Broth simmering on the stove so go on in and help your self and get warm by the fire. I can't wait to see what you brought today, it will be so good!

Full Plate Thursday Background Story

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!
Thank You So Much For Coming Today and Come Back Soon!

  17. Hi,
    I shared a recipe for braised short ribs with gravy (SCD/GAPS), Valentine Day Linzer Hearts. Also, an article about the relationship between diet soda and stroke, and I tried to answer the question: are grains toxic or safe?

    Thanks for hosting!

  18. I brought a very elegant but easy to make French dessert today - Creme Brulee. I hope you'll like it. Everyone always remembers the dessert and it's always a big hit with the men.

    Thank you for hosting this great event. Happy Thursday and enjoy your weekend Miz Helen.

  21. Oooo, apple cider. Fantastic idea! Thank you for hosting this recipe share. The kids are still sleeping so I have some time to browse....

    What I brought today is far from elegant. Veggie Poutine is my (healthier) take on a French Canadian dish that is best when you buy it from an outside vendor on a cold, cold, day. Fries, cheese curds and gravy is a delightful mess. Ours has a rich, mushroom gravy and oven-baked Russet fries. It tastes every bit as sinful as the original but is much better for you.

    Thanks again!

  37. Linky parties are the shit, aren’t they?? :)

    This week I’ve linked up my endive “Cup” risotto balls – that’s right. I took everything that goes into an endive cup and pimped it out with cheesy, carbohydrate goodness ;) It may not be healthy but the ingredients are real, whole, and in moderation, a little real, whole junk food never hurt anybody ;)

    Thank you so much for hosting!

    Thanks for featuring our salmon dish!
    This week I've shared something completely different - lemon curd! It's a childhood favorite of mine and now I can make it completely GAPS legal. You'd never know the difference :)
    I also shared how to clarify butter, which is one of the ingredients in the curd recipe.
