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 make quite a striking ugly shi.take.

 

P.S. SHI.TAKE is a swear word. Insult with caution.

Re: What's on your plate?

FARMER'S MARKET HAUL TIME!!

It's been raining so much in Northern California during these past couple of months, I've been going crazy without my fresh, local, organic produce!

We have Pink Lady apples in the first bowl. Garlic (yay! fresh garlic), yellow and red onions in the bowl towards the back. There's also a bag of dark raisins (for oatmeal) and a Eureka lemon (yum)

The big leafy greens are a couple types of chard.

Tomatoes on the vine.

Big fat brussel sprouts. Yukon gold, red and russet potatoes.

And the best of the bunch, the hen of the wood/maitake mushrooms as well as the ugly shi.takes. I don't discriminate, this is what they're called.

And in case anybody was wondering what almost a pound of maitake looks like, here's Henry

Re: What's on your plate?

Dem mushrooms, yo....I dig it!

 

And dem big ol' fat brussel sprouts!!! Nice!!!!!!

Re: What's on your plate?

Wow all of this looks so good! Right up my alley! I'm licking my chops. What do you plan to use the shrooms for?

Re: What's on your plate?

I know, @DiVWA, this is your kind of fest!

I think of you and your helpful books whenever I go hunting for produce.

So far, I made a chard, maitake, garlic dish on the side of our lambies yesterday. Lots more to work with though. Any suggestions?

Re: What's on your plate?

Tonight was Spaghetti and Ricotta Meatballs with pecorino bread. This one is ok. They didn't ship the garlic so that was a big boo.

Angry garlic is angry at the lack of garlic

Re: What's on your plate?

Re: What's on your plate?

Re: What's on your plate?

I am up so I will share some foods I am eating!

 

Soft Chicken Tacos! Was craving these.  Well, really the sauce. 

 

I like skinless dark meat which I started with spices and fresh homemade sofrito.

 

Spanish style tomato sauce with Mexican spices chili and cumin. Will use the leftover sauce to start the Tortilla Soup I am making today! 

 

Ready to shred!

Re: What's on your plate?

ChristinaLE totally sparked a fish craving for me last night with her mentioning of tilapia for her lunch!

 

Stocked up at the grocery store and decided to bake up some honey-glazed terriyake salmon!

 

Ingredients:

-Honey

-Soy sauce

-Chili powder

-Onion powder

-Sea salt

-Fresh ground pepper

-Sesame seeds

-Corn startch/flour/tempura batter

-Sesame oil/olive oil

-Salmon portions

 

1. Cover a baking sheet/pan with foil and rub a bit of oil onto it so your salmon won't stick, preheat the oven to 375.

 

2. In the second photo, the three pieces on the right are what I prepared, using about 1 1/2-2 tablespoons of honey (you can add more or less depending on how sweet you want and how many pieces you're working with). Add chili and onion powder, drizzle sesame oil and soy sauce, add in pepper and salt plus sesame seeds, once again, go off your nose and see if you need to add any other spices/ingredients to balance to your tastes. I included the corn starch/flour as a thickening agent, but this is optional, the honey makes the marinade pretty sticky, but adding a touch of the corn starch doesn't take away from the taste.

 

3. Rub and marinate the mix into the pieces, you can let them sit in the fridge for a bit if need be, or just transfer to the foil pan, be sure to cover/coat the pieces in the remaining marinade or keep it around to glaze them midway. They should look like picture 2 at this point.

 

4. Let the salmon bake for 30 minutes or more if you prefer there to be a bit of crisp to the edges.

 

5. The last photo is what it looks like completed. Smiley Happy Enjoy!

Re: What's on your plate?

That looks soooo good! Will have to make this with the bf soon!

 

Re: What's on your plate?

It's super yummy! I brought some to work to share with my friend!

 

Let me know how you and your bf like it when you get to make it!

Re: What's on your plate?

y u read my mind?!?! I have some kind of frozen fish, not sure if it's salmon or flounder since I brought it a month ago (o.O), I'm assuming this seasoning/method works for both?

Re: What's on your plate?

I've never tried it with flounder, but I believe flounder is a bit more delicate/thinner, so you might not have to bake it as long, which means one thing.....FOOD FASTER!!!

Re: What's on your plate?

Homemade guacamole!

Re: What's on your plate?

Mmmm, I'm so picky about guacamole! Most store brands or restaurant style stuff is just a no for me, but if it's freshly made at a restaurant in front of me (love that some places make a show about it) or a friend makes some for a party it's the best! I like when it's not super creamy/smooth, when it's too blended and mushed down it just feels odd to me!

 

What all do you make it with, Moregun?

Re: What's on your plate?

Agreed, I find most prnamed intolerable!  Simple recipe of avocados, lime juice, leek (or onion, depends on how brave I feel), garlic, salt, pepper, and chili paste, sometimes jalapeño Smiley Tongue

Re: What's on your plate?

Oooo the addition leek sounds super unique! I don't think I've ever come across leek used in guac before!

 

Ooo, I'd have to pass on the jalepeno, but chili paste....yum! Chili paste, chili powder...oh yeahhh!

Re: What's on your plate?

My husband uses Alton Brown's recipe! Soo good!
