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

Last week Super-Easy Sunday Supper.

 

Spanish Style Stewed Whole Chicken.  

Normally this is served with rice, but I like egg noddles better after eating it this way in Peru.

Re: What's on your plate?

These were the shrimps I was telling you about.  You can just eat them and fill up!  Can also eat chilled!  One of my fave protein snacks!

My authentic New Orleans Gumbo! 

(chicken, shrimp, sausage)

Don't event think about making this without the 1 and 1/2 hour (whisking at the stove) commitment to cooking the roux! It still can be just a tad darker, but I got impatient!  lol!

Cooking the Holy Trinity in the roux. This is Gumbo, Yall!

Drool!!!!

 

Time to throw some crawfish in there too! Tis the season!

Re: What's on your plate?

What dedication. Looks totally worth it.

Re: What's on your plate?

I forgot how long it took to make this roux.  

 

 

I won't complain when making risotto next time!  hahahaha!  That is only 30 minutes of stove whisking! 

Re: What's on your plate?

WOW you cooking the most amazing stuff!!!

Re: What's on your plate?

Mexican corn.jpg

Mexican Street Corn with Shrimp and Grits. And Roasted Corn and Onions, and Lime Crema. Couldn't use the fancy china for this one. This was delicious! I don't know if the grits came out right, I've never had grits before.
