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?

Today was an odd meal day.  Haven't gone grocery shopping in a week so it was all about using what was in the house.  I made Panko Breaded Chicken and Stuffed Mushrooms.  I mix fresh grated Parmigianao Reggiano, Pecorino Romano and Parmesan cheese into the breadcrumbs with Italian seasoning.  It is heaven!  


Re: What's on your plate?

Errrmahhgerrrddd!!! Stuffed mushrooms!!! Share share share! As in share the food and the recipe! :smileytongue:


I always buy mushrooms but never stuffed them! I have some chicken breast left over from last night and some ground turkey for tonight. It might be another casserole night.



Re: What's on your plate?

I was so excited that they turned out since they were my first attempt.  I had read a few recipes & decided to merge them together.  I used Panko breadcrumbs because those are the only ones I buy.  


1 Pkg Baby Bella Mushrooms

1 Cup Italian seasoned Panko breadcrumbs or plain + 2t Italian Seasoning

1/3 - 1/2  cup + 2T grated Pecorino Romano Cheese 

1/4 cup Mozzarella Cheese dices into pea size pieces

1/4 cup chicken broth

Olive Oil


Preheat over to 375. 

Clean mushrooms, remove stems and clean out inside to remove gills and make a well to hold the filling.

Dice up the stems of the mushroom and quick saute in olive oil until softened.

Mix breadcrumbs,mushroom stems and Pecorino cheese in a small bowl to combine.  Add chicken broth a little at a time until the mixture is the consistency of wet sand.  If you get the mixture too wet add additional breadcrumbs until the correct consistency.  Add mozzarella cheese pieces and mix.  Stuff the mushrooms and slightly mound.  Place mushrooms on a baking sheet or glass dish lightly covered with olive oil.  Sprinkle the mushrooms with the 2T cheese and sprinkle with oilve oil.

Bake for 35 minutes or until mushrooms are tender & tops are brown.

Thank you for the recipe! I can't wait to try it out! :smileyhappy:

Re: What's on your plate?

they are pretty tasty and fairly easy.

Re: What's on your plate?

I need more cheese, I used up the last of my 5 cheese blend in a chicken casserole last night and only have mild cheddar left.


This recipe is DEFINITELY doable, more than likely within the next week or so *fingers crossed*


I want to let you know, I passed the pizza recipe you shared to my bf's sister because I was showing her photos of the ones we made!

Re: What's on your plate?

I always have a hunk of Parmigianao Reggiano, Pecorino Romano and Parmesan cheese in my fridge.  The first time I made the breaded chicken with those cheeses mixed into the breadcrumbs I thought I had died & gone to heaven.


That is awesome - share the pizza love. :smileyhappy:

Re: What's on your plate?



Heck, I might have to buy even bigger mushrooms just to satisfy my tummy!

Re: What's on your plate?

I looked for the largest baby bella mushrooms I could find.  My dad already said he wanted them for Christmas Eve.  Maybe I'll try regular portabella mushrooms.

image.jpgAnother day, another salad. I post more food pix here than makeup pix. I guess it counts if I was wearing Shalimar and Meteorites when I made it. :smileyvery-happy:

rare steak and masago on top of a chopped salad. Dressing: Yumyum sauce. A Brie wedge larger than I should be eating. Avocado sprinkled with shiso furikake. Dill pickle and Spanish olives. 

Re: What's on your plate?

That. Looks. Amazing. *drool*

Re: What's on your plate?

Furikake!!! Love that stuff!


Nice on the addition of masago to the salad! I never would have though of that!

Re: What's on your plate?

I'm addicted to the masago!

I love my boyfriend.

Last night he made blackened salmon (it was sooooo perfect, crispy and smokey on the outside, but juicy and tender on the inside) with some velveta and broccoli. We added some whole wheat rotini noodles to the mix along with some shredded Italian cheese blend and freshly cracked black pepper.


I immediately passed out into a food coma after that. The above pic is of my lunch today. I was so excited all morning because I got to eat this meal all over again!

Re: What's on your plate?

Looks delish, how wonderful that he cooks too! 

Re: What's on your plate?

I consider myself (and my stomach) very lucky!

Re: What's on your plate?

That looks yummy. :smileyhappy:

Re: What's on your plate?

This looks soooo delicious..... *drools*

I'm not sure if it's a chain-wide thing or just something that my local store does, but once again I went into Whole Foods thinking I'd buy one thing and left with an idea for a delicious, new dinner.


Chicken Italian Sausage and some roasted squash.
