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

Re: What's on your plate?

For the record, I have no issues with a mass amount of pasta pics!


I've got some apple tartlets I'm planning to heat up tonight and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzle some espresso over it.



Re: What's on your plate?

Haha I love pasta, but I want to make other pretty foods too!

Re: What's on your plate?

Pasta: mushrooms, tomatoes, bratwurst, collard greens...


Re: What's on your plate?

OMG this looks amazing!! Pasta dishes are my weakness!! My husband would love this too! 

Re: What's on your plate?

Excuse me while I fall face first into that pot.

Re: What's on your plate?

For some reason pasta dishes always seem to look the best to me! lol

Re: What's on your plate?

I love the color and shapes too, so visually appealing!

Big **bleep** steak from a few days ago, to celebrate my BF's new job! (Near-horizontal move within the same company, but to a team much better suited for his talents and interests Smiley Very Happy) He is very good at cooking any type of protein. This was perfectly medium rare.. yum..

Congrats to your BF for his new job (sometimes it makes all the difference in the world to just change the atmosphere and scene with coworkers to bring the best out in everyone).


Medium rare.....YES!

I like the huge knife as scale for the thickness of that steak!

Re: What's on your plate?

I attempted green chili enchiladas today


Re: What's on your plate?

Those look almost too perfect to touch.....ALMOST, so I'm still going to need to just dive right in!

Re: What's on your plate?

Those look delicious!!

Re: What's on your plate?

Those would go great with my cheese buttermilk biscuits.

Re: What's on your plate?

Biscuitz?????? Recipe????

Re: What's on your plate?

Preheat 430 degree oven for dark bakeware/stoneware (I like to preheat my earthenware). 435 degree for metal pans


1c whole milk plus a generous splash of white vinegar, set aside to curdle.


2c all purpose flour

3 t baking powder

1/4 t baking soda

3/4 t salt

whisk together.


Use a fork to crumb up 1/2 stick of butter into dry mix. Add your "buttermilk", carefully move the flour into the milk until it starts to bind together to a slightly sticky but firm dough. Don't over work the mix.


Butter your pan of choice. I use a 9x9 earthenware casserole to drop the whole dough in as a "loaf".


Can make either cut or drop biscuits. Bake for around 22 minutes either way.


If doing cheese, take out at 20 and toss cheese on your "loaf". It is less fussy than adding cheese INTO the dough and having to test for doneness for the next six to eight minutes while you burn the biscuit bottoms.


Mix can also do monkey bread, just ball up the dough into quarter sized knots, roll in melted butter and your sugar cinnamon blend of choice and throw in the pan to bake.
