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!

  16. I would love to tour your garden. It's so refreshing to see new things growing! Today I've brought some Pan-Grilled Pork Chops with Gravy that are gluten-free and casein-free, with an option for low-carb. They are so quick and easy that the side dishes often take longer than the pork chops.

  29. good morning to everyone!

    i always look forward to this linky in particular - people really seem to take the time to check out what everyone made. love it :)

    i’ve linked to my quick recipe – smashed flat chicken with prosciutto and sage. It was moist, fast, simple, and surprisingly knocked my socks off with flavor. I don’t ordinarily make a lot of chicken because…well… it’s chicken. this was worth it though.

  31. Hello Miz Helen! I've brought my perpetual salad idea to share. I'm so sorry to read about Jaque today. I always look for his cute photo. I hope he lived a long life. He was such a bright spot in your life. He will be missed in your home for a long time. My blessings go out to you!

    1. Thank you so much Debra, my heart is breaking and the house seems so empty without him, he was my constant companion, and gave such unconditional love. Thank you for remembering little Jaque.

  37. Thanks for always hosting this great swap! I wish to say, on a personal note, how sorry I am to hear about your recent loss. Dogs just have a special place in our lives. I think they bring even more warmth and togetherness to a household. I know your little one will be missed and memories of him will be cherished.

  38. What a great linky party this week. Wonderful recipes to chose from. We linked up a terrific lasagna recipe.

  39. Oh my lordie Miz Helen. I am so sorry for your loss. I was about to link up when I noticed the picture of Jaque and the memorium. On the same day, you managed to do this linky party. I wouldn't have been able to get through. I have a Bichon Frise also and am not looking forward to that day, even though she is only 8 years old. We have already lost our Siberian Husky and it just devastated me. My heart and prayers go out to you.

    I am sorry to hear of your loss. Dogs are sometimes better family members than people, so I understand.
