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 love lettuces, salad and green. I can eat them any time, all the time. You always know how to make a beautiful plate and yummy too. Smiley Happy

So this just might have been the best grilled ham and cheese sandwich I've ever had/made.

The ham was leftover from last night, thank you DiVWA (she came over and cooked my dinner!! ha ha....no, no, she just gave me a great recipe for ham cooking/glazing (that I had to alter a bit since I threw out some needed seasonings) along with tips on where to get the best ham. Hint: It's Trader Joe's)


What you need:

Sourdough Bread Slices (I love our local Raymond's) but use what ever tickles your pickle.

Butter (doesn't have to be softened)

Sharp Cheddar Cheese or something that melts nicely; I usually go for Monterrey Jack, but I like how ham and sharp cheddar play with each other.



With the left over ham, I cut the non-sliced portion into thin slices, put aside.

Grated sharp cheddar cheese with one of those spice graters for extra, extra fine cheese, put aside.

Pre-heat pan, medium-high heat

Add a little more than 1/2 of tbs. of butter, slightly brown. 

"Dip" both sides of the bread into the butter, placing the side you want for the inner part down in the pan first.

Let "fry" for about 5-7 minutes, until golden brown.

Flip for about 5 minutes; while that side browns up, place ham around the outside of your bread pieces, to warm or ever crisp up the edges.

Add shredded cheese, then place ham on top.

Add more cheese and add the other piece of bread.

Use a spatula to flip to other side.

Let heat for about 2-5 more minutes.

Serve, let semi-cool, eat and sing.


Take it away, Judy

Oh. My. Yuminess!!!! I neeeeeed! Right now!


My mom makes something like this for me when I visit, as they have so much better gf bread over there, than we do here. Or, at least I couldn't find ( or make myself ) anything decent, so I gave up on bread ( almost ) completely. I love bread, but I'm extremely picky about it, and I won't eat just anything. I'd rather just stop eating it, so... yeah. But, this photo is just killing me right now! Smiley Tongue


And, again. ( I have to. It's your fault I'm drooling all over this place... )

And I would have baked the ham for you if you had lived near me! Smiley Happy

Made this LCHF Pizza today ( the crust is LCHF. Topping is my usual stuff  that is LCHF on its own as it is. )

Not sure I like the crust... But, the topping is to die for!

Plus, new batch of homemade larabars. Mr. Husband says they taste like chocolate ( when I gave him this to try for the first time, he thought it was a chocolate. ). Mission accomplished! Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

That pizza looks soooo delicious. Might need that recipe Smiley Wink LOL

Re: What's on your plate?

My dinner goal tonight is to do a mushroom and crab pasta with a light cream and cheese sauce.

Perhaps some stuffed mushroom caps are in order as well. The last time I hit up Costco the baby bella mushrooms seemed full grown to me! Smiley Tongue

Re: What's on your plate?

I hope eating that rum wouldn't be a problem...? Because it is in the tiramisu. Smiley Very Happy

But, if you wanna drink it, I do have a very nice, spiced rum from Caribbean.... mmmm..... very yummy....
