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:

He's a goof! <3 him! I gave him his bowl and was all , "WAIIIIT! I need to take a photo to show the girls!!!" And he just holds it up smiling, he doesn't mind be posted on BT since he's already on my avi pic with me and I've posted some of our other pics before.

Re: What's on your plate?

Here are the 2 recipes I use.  I had always used the Martha Stewart recipie & got the Micheal Symon one from seeing it on "The Chew". mmmmmmmm

 

I also make a sweet & sour salad with cucmbers, red/yellow/orange/green peppers, onions.

 

Michael Symon Spicy Quick Pickle
2 cups White Vinegar
1 teaspoon Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Red Chili Flakes
1 teaspoon Fennel Seeds
1 teaspoon Coriander
2 Fresno Chilies (thinly sliced)
2 Kirby Cucumbers (thinly sliced)
Combine vinegar, sugar, chili flake, fennel and coriander in a small pot and bring to a boil. Pour over prepared vegetables. Allow to sit until liquid is room temperature. Strain and serve.

 

Martha Stewart Quick Pickles
3 cups white vinegar
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon mustard seed
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
2 to 4 small red chiles (optional)
1/8 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 1/2 cups fresh dill fronds (about 1 bunch)
Cucumbers, prepared
To prepare cucumbers - Line a rimmed baking sheet with paper towels and lightly sprinkle with coarse salt. Arrange 4 small cucumbers, sliced 1/8 inch thick, on sheet in a single layer and sprinkle with salt. Cover with a second layer of paper towels. Let stand 15 minutes, then pat dry.
In a medium saucepan, combine white vinegar, sugar, salt, mustard seed, celery seed, red chiles (optional), and ground turmeric. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Arrange cucumbers and dill fronds in one or more jars. Pour hot brine into jar to completely cover vegetables and seal jar. Refrigerate until cool, about 2 hours (or up to 1 week).

I'm not a pan of pickles (just not a fan of anything pickled to begin with, I mentioned this is the kim chi posts a few pages back), but my cousins and bf LOVE them, every time we go to a deli or place with a pickle spear they always nab it off my plate! I say it's a good thing so at least food doesn't get wasted!

Re: What's on your plate?

I guess you won't be doing any long distance driving today! Those are just store bought. I ate all the homemade ones my dad and I  pickled a couple weeks ago! :smileywink:

Re: What's on your plate?

Me too! I always crave them with tomato juice for some odd reason. I'd addicted to sodium :smileyvery-happy:

Re: What's on your plate?

Are you two gals fans of fried pickles?

beautylovingirl

Re: What's on your plate?

No I don't like fried pickles, it's the same for tomatoes I don't like them cooked in any way, just straight from the garden.

Re: What's on your plate?

Girl, I live in Mississippi. Of course I like fried pickles. My favorite is fried pickle spears dipped in a chipotle ranch sauce! However, I tend to stay away from the fried pickles as I'm trying not to eat too much fried foods :smileytongue:

Re: What's on your plate?

Chocolate ranch???? I never heard of that in pickles before!
