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

Bone-In Pork Chop with Honey Mustard Cream. With miso-roasted fingerling potatoes and asparagus, topped with a lemony tomato and green onion garnish.

Re: What's on your plate?

Ooo, miso-roasted??? I have miso paste at home and aside from doing soups or miso-honey marinades I've have done stuff with it for potatoes. This has me curious!



Re: What's on your plate?

@lylysa It was pretty good. 

Re: What's on your plate?

Oohh lala!  If I made that  my husband would say, "This is one of those box (subscription) meals, isn't it?"  Looks yummy and healthy!

Re: What's on your plate?

@Ispend2much6 HAHAHA he would be right! I'd never heard of them until last month. 

Re: What's on your plate?

@SamtianI don't know what it is about them, but they're a lot of fun.

Re: What's on your plate?

Hi everyone!  I mentioned in the Party Thread that there should be a cooking thread, and Samtian referred me here! 

This is my pasta sauce, tried to copy an old family recipe that was never written down, and I'm so happy it came awfully close.  It took over six hours to make, but it was worth it.  Simple ingredients, but the method requires a lot of attention. Lots of garlic here, @wheeeee- an entire head!


Re: What's on your plate?

Six hours? I bet that was worth every second to have a sauce get supppper slow simmered to perfection! And YASSSSSS to lots of garlic!!! ^_^


Glad you could join in here! Smiley Very Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

1 Head of Garlic = Delicious-ness!!!!

No such thing as too much garlic!



Re: What's on your plate?

I agree!

Re: What's on your plate?

Mmm looks yummy! 

Re: What's on your plate?

Thanks, @Samtian!

Re: What's on your plate?



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! 



Re: What's on your plate?



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?

thanks, Jen!  

Re: What's on your plate?

We get our grass-fed lamb from a shepherdess whose farm is about 3 hours away. The cuts we get are sometimes a bit uncommon (compared to store-bought lamb). Last night we had sliced steak made from obviously the lower part of the leg. The broiled steaks were served on dandelion leaves with some steamed broccolini drizzled with roasted walnut oil.


Re: What's on your plate?

My eyes keep wanting to make some sort of order/pattern of the orange slices and blueberries lined up. It could just be me and my mind just wants to make more of it than it actually is, but how I do love that blue and orange contrast! ^_^

Re: What's on your plate?

Thank you (I think) Smiley Wink. I liked the contrast myself. I wanted to keep the orange away from the dandelion greens (although they taste great together) and have a color separation between the long ends of both dark green foods. (Actually it's a backward L as a secret code to the love of my life.)
