Full Plate Thursday 2-2-12

Welcome to Full Plate Thursday, I hope that your week has been as good as mine. What an exciting week we have had here at The Cottage. We have a new Great Granddaughter, Ella June,  born January 30, 2012 she is a real cutie and we are so excited that she is here, of course we plan on spoiling her just a little. Another high light of this week was having lunch with my blogging friends Kitty of Kittys Kozy Kitchen and Patsy of Pattycakes Cooking. We met for lunch in the city and had a wonderful visit,  you can read all about that in an upcoming post.  I am so happy to see you today and can hardly wait to see what you have brought to share with us at the table.

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!

  13. Happy Thursday! Thank you for hosting again. I am still shocked that you are already planting your garden. Today I posted Easy BBQ Meatballs. Too many people buy frozen meatballs and jarred sauce for Superbowl parties. That is such a shame, considering how simple that can be to make from scratch.
