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?

I've had homemade sausage (deer and pork) and it's delicious, you can definitely tell fresh, homemade versions from store bought.


I've never had dove, but I've tried quail and duck tends to be a regular at some family dinners (Pei-King duck, it's skin is slightly crispy and we cut thin slices and make little sandwiches in buns with green onion, cucumber, and sauce).


My boyfriend's family is into hunting so whenever we're back in his home town if they have anything prepared they send us back with it. We got deer meat tamales last time but my b/f's freezer shorted out and we didn't know so we had to toss them out. Smiley Sad

Re: What's on your plate?

wow, everyone here has such good eating habits, i find this thread a bit intimidating, lol.


I'm eating potato chips right now....when work stresses me out that's what happens....

Re: What's on your plate?

I'm more into Doritos and peanut M&Ms than potato chips, I usually grab them for my 6-9pm meetings/classes.


Haha, eating healthy occasionally makes me feel less guilty about snowed in days like today, spicy ramen and oreos (without milk, so that's healthy, right?).

Re: What's on your plate?

Haha, better add that milk for calcium, boom, back to healthy! Smiley Tongue

Re: What's on your plate?

No need to be intimidated at all! This isn't a place to judge, it's just to share and maybe even learn about new products or even recipes!


I wish I had some chips right about now, I love BBQ or blue corn chips. Yum yum! My friend showed me an awesome recipe of baking chicken dipped in egg (just egg whites if you want to be more lean) and rolling the pieces in crushed BBQ potato chips then baking them in the oven. This gives a nice crunchy texture without having to fry anything and you can serve them with various dipping sauces.

Have I posted enough??? hahaha!  @lylysa

Buffalo Wings Recipe

1. Chicken Wings pack (1-2 pounds per person)
2.  Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, Cayenne Pepper
3. Buffalo Wing Sauce (Franks Red Hot Wings, Louisiana Hot Wing Sauce)
4. Vegetable Oil (for frying)
5. Veggies (carrots, Persian cucumbers, celery, cherry tomatoes, peppers, etc.)
6. Bleu Cheese or Ranch Dressing (I like Marie's brand)

1. Soup pot for frying
2. Tongs, Asian strainer
3. Bowl or small pot
4. Prepare the plate with paper towels for frying wings. Extra clean plate.

We are gonna work backwards, so you don't cross-contaminate. 

1. Cut-up Veggies, arrange with dressing and set inside fridge. 

1. The pro-way. Empty bottle into a small saucepan and cook on low to reduce and thicken. If you like that 'smooth sauce flavor' add 1-2 TBSP of butter. about 15 minutes. 
2.The lazy & skinny way. Empty into a medium bowl, cover with paper towel and set inside the microwave. Don't add butter. ;')

1. Fill-up pot with about 3-4 inches of oil and set on low to start heating up.
3. Cut-Up/Wash/DRY chicken wings. Freeze the wings tips for homemade stock.  
4. Season with spices.
5. Check oil temp and start frying in batches!
6. Frying is like 10-15 minutes.  More like 13 minutes for me. Don't over-fry wings! 

Making Hot Wings
1. When wings are ready to come out heat up hot sauce in the microwave for 30 SECONDS. 
2. Place the heated Hot sauce on counter, grab the plate with paper towels and clean plate.
3. Remove wings from oil.  Dab the oil away on paper towels.
4.  Dip the wings in sauce and then set on clean plate!
5. If you reduced sauce on stove, then dip there. 

Serve with the cold veggies!  

If you want Garlic Hot wings.....sprinkle a little garlic powder on top.  I do this! ;')

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.


 My House



In Peru

Re: What's on your plate?

OMG, this dish looks like some no-nonsense good ol' comfort food! That's probably why it's also perfect hang-over food!

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. 

Re: What's on your plate?

This china is just as fabulous and eyes are actually torn at looking at the delicious food and the awesome plate! Smiley Very Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

@lylysa Haha thanks. My mom is obsessed with horses.

Re: What's on your plate?

Stuffed bell pepper. Stuffing had chorizo, quinoa, celery, carrot, onion, garlic, tomato sauce and cilantro.


Re: What's on your plate?

That pepper looks so beautiful!

Re: What's on your plate?

I love bell peppers stuffed!

Re: What's on your plate?

Last night I ran errands like crazy after work so I didn't have time to make a meal from scratch. Instead I grabbed the below from Costco and popped it into the oven...very satisfying! I have leftovers for lunch today!
