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:

Re: What's on your plate?

Its potatoes :smileyvery-happy:

Re: What's on your plate?

Hahah! Well shucks! I'll take potatoes too!!!!

 

I don't discriminate, it's all yummy!

 

How were those cooked up?

Re: What's on your plate?

My mom baked all of that in the oven. The turkey in the main oven and the potatoes in the smaller oven, I dont know what its called, it looks sorta lika a microwave but isnt.

Re: What's on your plate?

I cant wait till easter again actually. My dads side of the family is Orthodox so we celebrate 2 easters and 2 xmases every year :smileyvery-happy:

Re: What's on your plate?

Double the parties, double the fun, double food!!!!! 

 

I totally encourage more and more food pictures here!!

Re: What's on your plate?

Spinach Potato bisque from Joy the Baker

Cauliflower quiche from Smitten Kitchen

 

I made a ton of those 2 things, otherwise I'd just gorge on fried chicken all day long. Also made chocolate sauce (chocolate chips, Kahlua licquor, milk, leftover caramel ice cream) for smoothies (I'm on a banana smoothie bend.

Re: What's on your plate?

aren't smoothies supposed to be a kind of healthy food?  I wanna try your version with chocolate, booze and ice cream!

Re: What's on your plate?

[ Edited ]

Well, that was the ingredients for my chocolate sauce. The actual smoothie was banana, milk, nut butter, and some chocolate sauce (cuz straight up chocolate chips don't work quite as well).

 

Besides, booze and ice cream are not as bad as ingredients for smoothie than by itself eaten/drinking alone, right?

 

(somehow the grammar didn't seem right, hmm...I'm losing my touch).

Re: What's on your plate?

I went to a sweets shop this weekend and had a white chocolate, strawberry milk shake! Sooo good! It wasn't crazy thick or crazy sweet, juuuust right!

Re: What's on your plate?

Oooh, people have such a difficult time making fruit and chocolate milkshake mixtures, my favorite of all time is chocolate cherry, and so far there's two places that do it perfectly, Johnny Rocket's and Lucky Wishbone (in Anchorage)!

Re: What's on your plate?

I just had a chocolate and strawberry milkshake that was diiiiivine!!!!! It wasn't crazy thick and the it was a perfect balance of berries and chocolate (think they included some white chocolate). Delish!

Re: What's on your plate?

Homemade guacamole!

Re: What's on your plate?

[ Edited ]

Mmmm, I'm so picky about guacamole! Most store brands or restaurant style stuff is just a no for me, but if it's freshly made at a restaurant in front of me (love that some places make a show about it) or a friend makes some for a party it's the best! I like when it's not super creamy/smooth, when it's too blended and mushed down it just feels odd to me!

 

What all do you make it with, Moregun?

Re: What's on your plate?

My husband uses Alton Brown's recipe! Soo good!

Re: What's on your plate?

Agreed, I find most prnamed intolerable!  Simple recipe of avocados, lime juice, leek (or onion, depends on how brave I feel), garlic, salt, pepper, and chili paste, sometimes jalapeño :smileytongue:

Re: What's on your plate?

Oooo the addition leek sounds super unique! I don't think I've ever come across leek used in guac before!

 

Ooo, I'd have to pass on the jalepeno, but chili paste....yum! Chili paste, chili powder...oh yeahhh!

Re: What's on your plate?

If you lived nearby, you'd be more than welcome to join us!  Homemade gravy is amazing, especially when it's fixed in a cast iron skillet.  You can't beat cast iron!

Re: What's on your plate?

ohmigosh this thread makes me SO HUNGRY!!!

 

Fresh sausage!!!!  I've never had that in my life!

Re: What's on your plate?

It is sooo much better than what you buy from the grocery store.  Have you had hamburger meat, roast, etc?
