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!

  36. I already have three posts to share this week, wow. I’m a big blogging nerd. First is my final post on the GAPS Challenge. We are already in week four. What?! That went fast.

    Secondly I have my latest REAL FOOD 101 post on how to make a basic vinaigrette. Plus, I share my Garlic and Herb version that always makes everyone ask for the recipe and ask how I made such an amazing dressing. The secret? Come find out :D

    And finally, I just put up my latest post for a Berry Custard with Sweet Whipped Cream. It’s so delicious and versatile: perfect for breakfast, brunch, or dessert.

  44. Hi Miz Helen, thanks so much for stopping by my site, really appreciate it! I love your Full Plate Thursdays! I'm having trouble getting my link to work, it's not being recognised and since it's close to midnight, this homeschooling mum of 4 is calling it a night and will try again next week! I've bookmarked you so I shan't forget!
    And I also love The Garden Gate, I shall be looking at you for inspiration! Lin xx

  45. Dear Miz Helen,

    For winter, soup is always good, so I've brought some Napa Cabbage Soup. The delicate flavor of napa cabbage is enhanced rather than overwhelmed in this low-carb, gluten-free, casein-free soup.

    Stay warm and cozy!
