Full Plate Thursday 5-1-14

Full Plate Thursday Where The Greatest Cooks On The Planet Gather

Happy May Day!

I wanted to share a little breath of Spring with you today. This is a little flower garden at the back of our Herb Garden and you can see the Vegetable Garden in the distance, the onions are doing great. Come on back to the garden, we will just have our food tables out here it is so beautiful today. I am so glad that you could come today, we will love to try what you are bringing to share. I am leaving tomorrow for my annual Women's Spiritual Retreat and I am so excited about going. I began hosting the Retreat 21 years ago and it is always great to see old and new friends.

Background Story For Full Plate Thursday
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".
Party Guidelines

  12. Hi Miz Helen. This week I shared Lemon-Basil White Bean Soup. I love your flower garden. We're having nice weather in the Northwest, so I got more petunias for the garden. Finn tends to pick the wrong things when he's in the garden, so he isn't allowed anymore. Hugs to little Max; he's so cute!
