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?

Baking chicken is super simple and so yummy! You can season it all sorts of ways!

Re: What's on your plate?

Haha Baking Chicken is one of the very few things i can do! I love to coat Chicken tenders in the French's French Fried Onions. That stuff i soooo good! But i hate making mashed potato's and all that good stuff! But that might be for dinner tonight! 

Re: What's on your plate?

It was so hot today, I was too lazy to really cook so I made a quick skillet meal: red potatoes, onions, broccoli, mushrooms & italian chicken sausage cooked in white wine, truffle oil & some leftover chicken stock I had in the freezer. 

Re: What's on your plate?

Your too lazy to cook --> mushrooms & italian chicken sausage cooked in white wine, truffle oil & chicken stock


My too lazy to cook --> Cup of Ramen and honey dew melon.


Lol, you are too good. Speaking of which, I've been curious about truffles stuff. I know there's black truffle and white truffle? and somebody claimed they taste like mushroom? How do you like them, what do they taste like, and are there any brands of truffle/oil you would recommend?

Re: What's on your plate?

LOL, it was very simple, I chopped & threw everything into a cast iron & walked away. 

I love mushrooms, but truffle oil is a lot richer. Black is more flavorful, white is slightly milder. I get the black truffle oil from wegmens it comes in a little bottle, all you need is a few drops. The white I purchase at Home Goods when they have it since it's a lot cheaper there. 

I don't eat french fries often, but if I see truffle fries with parmesan & rosemary on a menu I almost always order it! 

Re: What's on your plate?

The fries I had didn't have rosemary, but they did have parmesan! Yum, I think the dishes I've ever had only used white truffle oil as I'm sure I would have noticed a difference between the fries and chips if they used different oils.



Re: What's on your plate?

I agree with beautytester. I didn't feel like cooking and ended up with an assortment of side dishes.


I'm highly impressed with your lazy dish!

Re: What's on your plate?

I've had some fancy potato chips at this one place that used truffle oil and another place that made french fries with truffle shavings, they do have a very earthy flavor, I mean, heck, they're buried under the ground, but that's really the best way I can describe it from the ways I've tried it.


Dinner tonight is rice, pork spare ribs, gai lan, and steamed egg.

Re: What's on your plate?

Re: What's on your plate?

Blueberry bread sounds like heaven.

Re: What's on your plate?

Where did you find that bread??? It sounds wonderful!

Re: What's on your plate?

At my commissary (military grocery store) it's by Franz so it might be in any local place.  

Re: What's on your plate?

Time to go on the hunt for blueberry bread! Making french toast with it sounds even better!
