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

We're both on the same page! I made a giant pot two nights ago but now it's all gone Smiley Sad

Re: What's on your plate?

One of my girlfriends is stopping by my house tomorrow to pick up a container for her family.  She has been texting me all day excited about the soup.

image.jpg@ The Adolphus Bistro in Dallas yesterday. It was rainy and I was still sleepy from the concert Sunday night so just hungry enough for a snack and a sweet. I don't eat many desserts (except fresh fruit and cream) very often but once in a while I crave a nice, decadent something. My fiancé said the Steak Diane was good. Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

It came topped on an english muffin with home fries.....yummmm!

Re: What's on your plate?

I'm currently partaking in an after-work repast of spicy seaweed ramen and an Amber Woodchuck.  Football ran long, I need the boost.  >.<

Re: What's on your plate?

I think that might just be 2 of my favorite things...ramen and cider though I have never had them in a single sitting..

Re: What's on your plate?

Gahhhhh, I'm going to cry! I miss good ramen!


I've yet to find legit ramen at a restaurant other than the ramen houses I visited when I was vacaying in Hawaii. Gosh I miss it so much!

Re: What's on your plate?

Wish I could say this was good ramen!  Trader Joe's had some flavors I hadn't tried yet, but this one's kinda bland.  It's got heat but not a lot of flavor.  And the noodles have a weird kinda texture.


It was almost ramen & vodka, but then I remembered there were still two bottles of Chuck in the fridge, and if I didn't get one now, they'd be gone by tomorrow!  Smiley Very Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

Aw, bummer on the ramen quality. Odd noodle texture surely throws it off!


Speaking of noodles, my cousin took me to this pho place a few months back that hands down had the best pho. It's this tiny mobile home converted into a food trailer/restaurant that's family run and it's all homemade. I'm used to pho broth being homemade, but this place even makes their own noodles! OMG! So delicious and you could TASTE the fact their noodles where different. 


I almost grabbed a glass of moscato, but opted for some of Bolthouse Farm's Mocha Cappuccino instead.

Re: What's on your plate?

Sounds like a place I know (haven't been there in forever..maybe I'll go tomorrow).  The best pho, I've found, are in places you'd be scared to enter.  Actually, some of the best food is found in some sketchy surroundings.

Re: What's on your plate?

Mom and pop shops are usually the best! The pho place I mentioned is super tiny and cramped, they only have 3 tables that can sit maybe 4-5 people max and two tables that can sit 1-2 people and man, they crank food out like a machine! I sat down, ordered, and in less than 5 minutes I had a bowl of steaming hot pho!

Re: What's on your plate?

I guess I'm lucky to live in a town with a great selection of Asian restaurants but am excited to hear a new ramen shop is going to be opening up downtown. I want ramen!


Re: What's on your plate?

UHHH! I want! Why can't Sephora ship hot food too!?

Re: What's on your plate?

DROOL!!!!!!!!!!!!  oh this food thread is killing me.....have not had decent ramen in years ;_;

Re: What's on your plate?

My eyes literally went wide when I saw the thumbnail of this pic! My tummy is definitely doing flips now!


It's hard to explain GOOD ramen to folks who only think ramen means the 40 cent bags at grocery stores with those salt bomb packets. Ramen is so so so much more! 

Re: What's on your plate?

At least it's hot.  Smiley Happy  It rarely gets above 70 degrees in the control room I work in, so I'm happy as long as it's hot, and not terribly terrible.


Aaaaaah, that sounds *so* good!  If I ever get around to making ramen or pho from scratch, I'm definitely going to go the whole nine yards and make the noodles, too.  Now *I* want to hit the local ramen shop!

Re: What's on your plate?

That place shuts down and closes once they run out of broth and noodles, that's how awesomely homemade it is! They start early cooking and once it's all gone...close up shop until the next day!
