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?

Hmm i will have to try making bacon sometime! Whenever i buy eggs lol! 

If it doesn't work out on the stove top i'll try the oven! :smileyhappy:

Thanks @lylysa!!!!

Re: What's on your plate?

No prob! Keep us posted on your bacon endeavors! The bacon cheeseburger casserole I mentioned is super easy to make, I've posted the recipe to Spyski one here before because she mentioned her bf was a picky eater. Let me know if you want me to send it to you too!

Re: What's on your plate?

Hmm while it sounds good to me, when i do cook, it's for me and my sister, so i highly doubt it's something she would like. She never likes any type of casserole! But i'll let you know if i want the recipe! :smileyhappy:

It's essentially a mixed noodle/meat dish cooked over the stove rather than in the oven. It's like Hamburger Helper but homemade so not as loaded with salt or preservatives.

Breakfast for me today:

I'm at the airport, waiting for my flight home from a business trip.  To not feel so guilty, I also bought a banana :smileyhappy:

Re: What's on your plate?

That looks amazing!

Re: What's on your plate?

LOL! Banana = guilt balancer, what flavors are those???? Gah, I miss Coldstone! They don't exist anymore in my area, it's only Marble Slab. There is one location that I just refuse to go into, I'm warning you right now....it's a gross/sad story....

 

I walk into MS with my friends and order Rocky Road (the girl has to make it since they don't have the flavor as is...simple, nuts, marshmallows, chocolate ice cream, right? WRONG! I see her grab vanilla and the RR mix-ins and think "No way can that be mine, I ordered ROCKY ROAD....must be for someone who was in line ahead of me who happened to want vanilla with those toppings!" She's mixing away and suddenly looks up with this glazed over look on her face and in a monotone, flat voice asks, "Oh.....wait.....you said ROCKY ROAD....right?"

 

*face palm* Did vanilla and RR mix-ins get called SMOOTH road and she thought I must have stated the wrong thing? Anywho, she scrapes off the vanilla and starts again, but over mixes and by the time she hands me my cup the ice cream is leveled into it. I mean, FLAT and flush on the top and it's melting like crazy. Ick.

 

On top of that, as I was leaving I saw the guy who was making waffle cones had several holes in his gloves at the finger tips so he's touching all of them essentially with bare skin......blegh!

@lylysa --- it's mint chocolate chip and chocolate ice cream!  YUMMMMMmmmmmmmehhhhhhhh!  

 

That's terrible about Marble Slab, ewwww!  Yeah places that do mix-ins always seem to mush the ice cream into the cup, I meant it's half melted already by the time it gets to you!

Chowing down on my favorite summer snack right now- grilled zucchini with a wash of olive oil and a bit of sea salt.

Mmm, sea salt is the best! So flavorful!

 

I just came back from Panera so it was chicken and wild rice soup, their Frontega chicken panini, chips and a strawberry smoothie! Their frozen drinks are 50% for August from 3-5! Whohoo, it's like a Panera happy hour!

Re: What's on your plate?

Since I have been on clear liquid diet for a week I was finally able to eat!!!!! We went to a Mongolian Grill soooo good!  To drink I had a watermelon spritzer which is watermelon, pineapple juice and sprite (I spiked it) haha :smileyhappy:

Re: What's on your plate?

OK, I have to share today's dinner because it was out of my wheelhouse (I am comfortable with cooking most critters that had legs), but also because it was delish.

 

  • Grilled Koho Salmon with Chimichurri sauce
  • 2 Grilled Scallops, topped with Garlic and Herb Butter
  • small scoop of twice-baked macaroni and cheese
