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:

Have you tried the Riddle Skittles??? Those are fun! The color make you think it's going to be one flavor but when you eat them and it's a whole other flavor entirely!

Had some tasty teriyaki glazed salmon for breakfast.  Shall be having another piece for lunch.  Don't know what dinner is yet, still trying to talk the parents into doing something special for dinner, since technically it's "Fend Night", but I'm not normally off on Friday evenings, so isn't that cause for a special something?

 

I'm also making myself ravenous by all the Japanese snack recipes I'm digging up for testing purposes.  I'll have to remember to post pictures for you ladies Monday & Tuesday, since you're the only ones I can share with until after next Saturday.  :smileyvery-happy:

Re: What's on your plate?

yesterday i made chocolate banana bread.

 

tonight i cooked up some green beans fresh from the farm with a little bit of butter and saffron, garlic mashed potatoes, meatloaf and potato rolls. the rolls kind of ruined the whole fresh made vibe, i had to send my boyfriend out last minute to grab some because i didn't have the energy to make biscuits from scratch and i am no good with yeast, so i don't make bread. that's something i plan on tackling one of these days, though! 

 

i also bought a bunch of peaches for some peach butter, and some pumpkin for chocolate pumpkin bread! i'm just going to sub the pumpkin for the banana in the same recipe i used yesterday :smileyvery-happy: 

 

tomorrow night my daughter will be at her dad's and my boyfriend at school so it's just going to be the baby and i... lazy night in the kitchen for me :smileyhappy: i'll probably eat some frozen trader joe's pasta haha.

I'm excited about today's lunch, yes pizza again lol

It's Italian beef with giardiniera peppers. So delicious.

 

I am craving deep fried bacon wrapped pickles.

GAH.

Re: What's on your plate?

Oh, this has me wanting pizza, too.  And fried pickles, but thin, crispy chips of fried pickles.  Mmmmm...

Re: What's on your plate?

Ate lunch early today 'cause I was hungry.  A good sized helping of chicken & rice, leftover from Monday's dinner!  Easy-peasy to make, just cube some cooked chicken, mix it with uncooked rice, peas, onions, and the amount of liquid you would need to cook the uncooked rice, only instead of water, we're using chicken broth.  Cook it like you do regular rice, and you've got a tasty, one-pot dish!

Re: What's on your plate?

But i was seriously starving! I hadn't eaten anything all day! And i made some Spaghetti and Garlic bread, and completely forgot to take a picture! 

But it was Yummy! :smileytongue:

Re: What's on your plate?

Egad. After being sick all of last week & hardly eating anything, I'm almost well. Now I'm nomming everything in sight like I have a tapeworm or something.

Just this morning I've had a cup of Beefaroni, a Maruchan instant lunch, 1/4 box of Triscuits (fire roasted tomato & olive oil flavor), a cup of steamed wild rice, a glass of iced coffee...now I'm about to go out for lunch. lol

lylysa

Re: What's on your plate?

Triscuits!!! I love taking a bit of pasta sauce and cheese, topping them and baking them in the over or toaster oven for a bit! They're like little pizza-Triscuit treats! Especially with the flavor you have!

Re: What's on your plate?

Oh that sounds fab. Om nom nom nom...don't give me any ideas! lol

Since there's been some mention of moon cakes, here's what my mom whipped out during an early dinner to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival.

They're not traditional moon cakes, but instead are like the mochi dessert. For anyone not familiar with mochi, it's ice cream encased in a gelatinous rice flour layer which is kind of like a chewy dough. These moon cakes didn't have ice cream inside, but were served cold to ensure the outer layer didn't get melty and sticky. The two dark brown ones had black sesame and peanut filling, the big orange/yellow one had a mango creme filling, the white was a white chocolate and chocolate cookie crisp filling, and the peach/tan one was guava!

 

They were surprising to my taste buds and I really liked them! Got to try all but the mango, we had to cut them up and split them between 12 people!

 

P.S. Pay no mind to the fallen green pea pod in the photo....photobomber! :smileytongue:

Omg they look so good. I've been tempted to buy moon cake and have been avoiding them whenever I'm at the store... Your mom is awesome!
