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

Had a giant family dinner last night....


Giant steamed prawns, crab fried rice, bbq pork ribs, greens, steamed tilapia, silken tofu with mushrooms, black pepper fried lobster, green onion and ginger sauteed lobster, and chicken....YUMMMEHHHH!


Re: What's on your plate?

...there was lobster, and I was not informed...RELEASE THE CATS!!


No seriously, that sounds delicious though Smiley Very Happy

Totally read your "RELEASE THE CATS!!" in this format with Liam Neeson voice:

Re: What's on your plate?

Was hungry so dinner came early.  I need to learn how to pan-sear better...

Re: What's on your plate?

Me too - I can never seem to get it right!

Re: What's on your plate?

Tonight's dinner (cooking right now):

  • Rosemary and garlic roasted lamb shoulder chops
  • Grilled asparagus
  • Tossed fruit salad

Re: What's on your plate?

I should mention that I have a new obsession in my cooking life: the Le Creuset Skinny Grill Pan- from Sur la Table. I've been using it almost daily since I got it a month ago.  For most, way pricey splurge.  For me? Totally worth it already.


ETA: Due to local regulations, you pretty much need to have a SFH with a large yard to have a grill that's non-electric.  So, I get my beloved grill taste on a cooktop! Yay!

Re: What's on your plate?

This looked too good not to share!

Re: What's on your plate?

* Subject to change since I'm heading out to the farmers' market later.
