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? Smiley Very Happy

I've made these not so long ago... And, we loved them! So, I made them again today. Smiley Happy ( Nice and soft for tortured jaw/mouth, excellent when transitioning from "baby", to solid food. Smiley Wink )

 

Roasted stuffed peppers. ( "Filling" is ground meat, with a lot of different veggies in it, too! Very yummy way of sneaking veggies in for those of us who are not so fond of them... Smiley Wink

What is this? How do you make these? Please, do tell!

*drools*

Re: What's on your plate?

If I said I didn't know how to list all the ingredients in English would I sound like an idiot?  We're a mixed family so I've kind of gotten used to shopping without being able to read the packages.  They're called Cha Siu (bbq pork) bao (steamed buns) you can probably google for a recipe.  I've been trying to adapt it to more readily available ingredients because getting hk flour around here costs a fortune.  Be forewarned it's a long rise double leavened dough so not a 1 day project usually.  These I did with cake flour close but I think a cake/pastry flour mix might be closer, that's next time.

Re: What's on your plate?

Cha siu baos are my favooooooorite!!!!!

 

 

The sauce above can be used to season the pork (even add a touch more honey or sugar to sweeten it more).

Re: What's on your plate?

I know exactly what you mean! I'm kinda sorta in the same ( similar ) boat. English is my third language, and if I don't have a recipe in English already as it is, it is like a mission impossible for me to put some of my non-recipe recipes down in writing - in English! So, no worries, I totally get the situation. And, no! You definitely don't sound like an idiot! Don't even think that.

 

Now that I know what it is, I could google it... But, I won't. It is just gonna be a torture, because... I don't think this is something you could make with gluten free flours ( terrible gluten intolerance here! ).... I haz a sad.... Smiley Sad

This reminds me of whenever I try to cook at my grandma's house. I guess it's the opposite problem, but she labels a lot of her spices in Spanish and I have to try really hard to figure it out sometimes haha. I see it as a good thing though, it's a way to learn! By the way, those buns look delicious bratknits! I might go grab some sometime this week if I get the chance.

Re: What's on your plate?

I have a lot of kinda translated recipes.  My kimchi recipe in particular is a sort of hilarious read.  A family friend who immigrated from Korea made one of her sons translate a bunch of her recipes for me and there's either not or her didn't know an English/Romanized word for some things so he wrote descriptions of the ingredients.  His description of saeujeot gives me a giggle every time I pull that one out.

Re: What's on your plate?

How did he describe it??

Re: What's on your plate?

Tiny shrimps that smell like they've gone bad and are very salty.

Re: What's on your plate?

So....I might have been really bad, but I might really not even give a hoot.

It was so worth it.

And I regret nothing
