What's on your plate?

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:

I used Shiitake and baby Bellas and 1/2 a zucchini and a bag of frozen cauliflower. I add a tablespoon of Chipotle Tabasco, lime, ginger and basil. It started as a sort of Tom Yum based thing but it's kind of morphed into a kitchen sink comfort soup for fall and winter.

Re: What's on your plate?

tonight i made a roux to thicken the chicken soup i made on sunday night into more of a chowder, added a pint of heavy cream and some corn and put it in a casserole dish topped with garlic cheddar biscuit batter and baked it in the oven :smileyhappy: and i STILL have about a gallon of leftover soup haha. but man, it was SO good :smileyvery-happy: i need to find at least one more creative way to use up these leftovers haha. we're probably going to be eating it in some form or other for the rest of the week hahaha

Cupcakes are my kryptonite!!!!  I love baking them, decorating them & eating them.  I took a dozen to my salon today when I went for my nail appointment.

LOOK LOOK LOOK!!!!!

 

I finally got to make pizzas with the recipe you posted! I'm so excited!!!!!! :smileyvery-happy: My bf, cousin, and my tummy thank you!

 

I ended up using whole wheat all-purpose flour since I figured I'd use what I have available, found that I needed about half a cup more hot water than what the recipe called for, maybe because the wheat aspect makes it all hearty. We did skip the sauce bit because HEB had a sale on some, we got a fire roasted tomato sauce and a roasted garlic sauce.

 

For toppings we had the below to work with:

 

-Portabella mushrooms

-Fresh spinach

-Fresh basil

-Asparagus heads

-Smoke ham

-Pepperoni

-Prosciutto

-4 cheese blend

-Hand-shredded mozzerella

-Garlic

-Onions

 

The recipe you gave me ended up making five pizzas total, pretty awesome! We used all the dough and we still have a ton of toppings!

 

I was surprised at how easy it was to put together! I'll have to make some more this week because our fridge is overrun with toppings, hahah! Thanks again!

Re: What's on your plate?

Those look amazing!!!!  I'm glad you liked them and they turned out so well.   I love the dough recipe it is the perfect texture.  I may have to try the Prosciutto and Spinach on our next pizza night!

Re: What's on your plate?

The stellar pizza of the night was Prociutto, spinach, mushroom, and asparagus!

 

I also have some of the leftovers for lunch today....my stomach can't wait!

 

Thank you again for the recipe!

Re: What's on your plate?

That sounds like loads of fun.  I may have to try that for my next trip to Houston with my 2 nieces. :smileyhappy:

Re: What's on your plate?

I think that we are going to make pizza on Sunday.  I've already started my grocery list. :smileyhappy:

 

I think I may try some different type of tomatoes this time.

Re: What's on your plate?

Heck yes! Chicken noodle soup is the best! I think I've posted a recipe somewhere for a version I make, what all do you use/put in yours?

I haven't made chicken soup in a while since I haven't been sick recently (well besides that week everyone was sick, but all I had was sinus pressure, never got sick) 

Mine is usually so packed with veggies I don't have room for noodles :smileytongue: 

I like to start my soup off with making a garlic based broth: 1-2 heads of garlic, simmered in a some water, white wine & a touch of truffle oil. After a while I mash the garlic up until it's dissolved. 

Then I add: more water, sautéed onions, mushrooms, carrots, celery (if I have it), sometimes corn, turnip or parsnip... what ever veggies I have in the fridge. 

Lots of herbs: oregano, smoked paprika, basil, cracked pepper, thyme, dill, bay leaf...

A few chicken breasts, once they are fully cooked, I take them out, shred them & throw it back in. 

I love to pack my soups with antioxidants & cold fighting properties. & Using a garlic broth saves me the time & energy of straining chicken legs & cleaning them. I try to stay away from pre-made broth because they tend to be high in sodium & preservatives. I like the Organic ones, but they get expensive & the garlic broth is so easy to make. Besides I usually have enough ingredients at home to whip up a soup in a few hours without having to drive to the store.

Ooooo the garlic in the water/broth sounds super good, I've yet to try that! *idea stored away for next time* Thanks, girl!
