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:

For today's lunch I made Custom designed Pizzas

Pac Man for my 6yr old son , Star for my 10yr old daughter, heart for 3yr old daughter and Hexagon for my Husband :smileyvery-happy: . Since the only molds left behind were boring Squares and rectangles so I rather make a Round XL pizza for myself and for anyone else who want extra bites after finishing their own.

Dinner last night:

 

Paired with corn tortillas, lettuce, tomato, Monterrey Jack cheese, and avocado crema (mash 1 ripe avocado with 1 or 2 generous spoonfuls of sour cream, some salt and pepper to taste, can add in lime juice, lemon pepper, and chili powder if wanted).

Grilled marinated flank steak with chimichurri sauce and Quinoa. Oh and a slice of chicken breast. Grilled veggies not in pic. 

Re: What's on your plate?

Looks so good.

I love how you included the chicken breast into the party...

Perfect balance.

Re: What's on your plate?

Thanks, it was delish :smileyvery-happy: The sauce made the plate.

I love the fresh smell you get when you are chopping all the parsley.

Re: What's on your plate?

Fresh herbs is such a beautiful aroma! Even freshly cut garlic! I relish every time I make garlic butter and my kitchen just fills up with the scent!

Re: What's on your plate?

I made spaghetti yesterday so that's what will be for dinner tonight, as well.

It was delicious..but sadly, I ate all of the bread before dinner came around so I might need to get some today because if I'm going to be bad, I might as well be very bad..

San Marzano tomatoes definitely make a difference.

They are the best.

Super quick recipe

 

Spoiler

Dice an onion (I used yellow)

Grate/Mince garlic (I used to big cloves, grated them because I'm lazy and its pretty efficient)

-set aside-

Brown the meat (we had lean but fatty is great; I like to salt the pan first to crisp up the edges, then I'll add olive oil, if it needs it and will pepper before I dump it in with the onions)

Heat big pot, add olive oil, onions and after a couple of minutes the garlic

Add meat once done, cover with lid for a few minutes

Add canned tomatoes (San Marzano if you've got them)

Cook the sausages; I used both Mild and Hot Italian sausages but I cooked them separately so the hot didn't get all over the mild.

Add those to the sauce, then tomato paste; cover

I ended up using water to clean out the tomato cans; it all depends on how thick you want your sauce

A little wine, let it cook off

The longer it sits, the better.

I think it was about 6 hours of simmering before we ate

I'm really looking forward to leftovers tonight..

Italian sausage!!!! Thank you for the recipe too!

 

Maybe it actually reads:

 

"A litte wine.....*sip a a little wine*, let it cook off.....*sip a little wine*" :smileytongue:

Re: What's on your plate?

Pasta.. yum. Home made, long-simmered sauces are so good!

Are they angel's hair?

Diner for one last night. I made some tilapia, roasted broccoli and brown/wild rice. If anyone ever wants to visit LA I'll cook for you haha.

Re: What's on your plate?

I think there's supposed to be a Earl Grey cheesecake or something like that in my future trips to LA?

I'm requesting this, too.

It looks so good and healthy...I already used my begging kitty gif so I'll save it for something more sinful..nom nom nom.jpg.

Earl Grey pie!

ep

 

 

I really do hope you come down one day though!

Re: What's on your plate?

What I want to know is where is the rest of the pie and why is it not in mah belly! 

Re: What's on your plate?

I was so close!

Earl Grey cheesecake sounds pretty good though..

So do those macaroons..

Once I get my head out of my butt, I think I'm going to have to do a tour of So. Cal and visit you!

 

Re: What's on your plate?

Yay! And I'll let you know if I ever make it up north again! I'm due for a trip there anyway

Re: What's on your plate?

Sounds like a plan, man.

Whenever you do, I'll even pick you up at SFO.

Now, I need to do research on places other than Sephora to take you...ha ha

I think you'd appreciate Haight St for many reasons..oooo....music, makeup and food.

Sounds good to me..

 

Re: What's on your plate?

I've been, it's fun! I also went to the Mission District I believe, and some fancy tea place called Samovar haha. I didn't have really any time to spend in SF last time I went, I had to split it between there and the "nice" part of Oakland where my cousin lived. I'd love to explore more!
