Full Plate Thursday 6-28-12


It's Full Plate Thursday Where All The Greatest Cooks On The Planet Gather

We have been busy canning here at The Cottage and trying to keep up the abundant harvest that we have been given this year, it is awesome.  We are also getting ready for our 4th of July Celebration, that will be over two week ends this year. Some of the little community festivities will be this week end, then a big fireworks show on the 4th. Our little community will have their annual parade and bake sale on the 7th. WoW we are going to be busy!  I know that all of you are very busy right now with wonderful summer activities and I am so excited that you took the time to come by today. I can hardly wait to see what you are sharing with us today, so lets get right to it. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Full Plate Thursday and sure hope you will come back real soon!

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. it sounds like you have one packed weekend! Get it?? packed?? canning?? maybe that was a bad joke...

    This week I’ve linked up 2 Posts:

    1. my Secret Recipe Club assignment: Balsamic Slow Braised Grass-Fed (Pastured) Beef Short Ribs. By FAR, best meal I’ve had in a long time. I recommend them to anyone who likes beef. Or meat. Or food. ;)

    2. a guest post from Heather @ Tart and Heathered: Brownies with a twist… specifically, bacon. oh yes. we went there.

    Also: Keep an eye out next Wednesday – there’s a new blog hop in town and I think you’re gonna like it! All fresh foods (CSAs; farmer’s market treasures; garden hauls; & similarly related posts) welcome!

    Thank you for hosting.
