What's on your plate?

Hello there, ladies and gents!

 

Keeping in line with all the fun and interactive threads asking about your most recent halls, items you have your eyes on, what you're currently wearing, what's your hair routine, and more, I've decide to branch out and ask:

 

"What's on your plate?"

 

The beauty world doesn't just stop at skin care and cosmetics, it also goes hand in hand with your overall health and well-being, so with that, I'm curious to see what we're all chowing down and snacking on be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, or inbetween!

 

For those with apps that help count calories or to those who just want to keep a log, here's a place to share, possibly find and share some recipes, and even tips on maintaining a balanced diet.

 

Don't just share food items, but even drinks! I'm a huge fan of tea and at least have a cup of green tea a day (anti-oxidants) and drink plenty of water.

 

For lunch today, I had:

 

-Brown rice

-Steamed egg

-Steamed red snapper with green onion, sesame oil, and black pepper

-Gai lan (it's a type of Chinese vegetable/greens)

 

Now, tell me, Beauty Talk world, what do you have? :smileyvery-happy:

I'm going to dive face first into that bowl!

Re: What's on your plate?

It was mighty tasty!

Re: What's on your plate?

Mmmmm feel better beautyjunkie!  I've got a cold too- my fiance made me chicken noodle soup monday and then a chicken stew with soy sauce and sesame oil today- the chicken broth really helps a cold!

Re: What's on your plate?

You feel better too!  I do think the chicken broth has helped.  I'm feeling a bit better this evening. If I'm feeling better tomorrow I'm making chicken fried steak bites. Mmmmm.

Right now I'm having.......lemon apple ginger juice! It's really good if you love tart flavors, mine could use a bit more ginger but I just got my Nutribullet and I'm still playing around with it.

It was pretty good.  The only thing that would have made it better would have been some good yeast rolls.

Million dollar question....what kind of cornbread???? Sweet? Savory? Spicy???

 

 

Re: What's on your plate?

Hmmm I'd say sweet, but not as sweet as some others I've tried.

Re: What's on your plate?

Jiffy cornbread with brown sugar.....mmmmm

Re: What's on your plate?

High five for the sweet!!!!

 

I take Jiffy mix and yellow cake mix and put them together, takes the guess work out of sugar measurements.

Re: What's on your plate?

OMG that is perfection!  what is your cornbread to cake ratio?  I may have to try that With my next batch of chili.

It's 1 box of Jiffy (prepared as is) and half a box of yellow cake mix (prepared with half the add-in ingredients).

 

Easiest thing ever and soooo good! My friend moved to Korea for a while as her husband was stationed there and craved it so bad she messaged me for the recipe!

Re: What's on your plate?

mmmm that sounds delicious! jealous!

Re: What's on your plate?

Dinner last night/lunch today:

 

Chicken roll ups

Broccoli

Whipped garlic mashed potatoes

 

Chicken roll up recipe:

 

-1 10 oz can of condensed Cream of Chicken soup

-1/2 milk

-1/2 cheese (shredded, of your choice, if you want more, feel free for you cheese fanatics)

-1 pack of 8 cresent rolls

-Chicken breast (about 6-8 oz. per pack of cresent rolls)

-Salt, pepper, seasonings of choice

 

1. Preheat oven to 350

2. Cook and shred up chicken breasts, set aside

3. Mix soup, milk, cheese together until smooth, season to taste per your liking (I used a touch of lemon pepper, onion powder, salt, pepper this time around)

4. Spoon portion of mix into bake pan (I used a glass 13x9, actually made double this recipe in that size, you have a 8x8 or 9x9 it can work for a single pack of cresent rolls) until base is covered lightly with soup mixture

5. Take each cresent roll piece, add chicken, a spoon of soup mix, roll up, and place in pan, repeat for all

6. Spoon/pour additional soup mix over rolls, top with a sprinkle more of cheese if wanted

7. Bake for 30 minutes (mix should slightly bubble), remove from oven, let cool a bit, serve and enjoy!
