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? 😄

Re: What's on your plate?

@eshoe  We don't mind leftovers, so this will work out well.  Thanks!

Re: What's on your plate?

You’re welcome, @Ispend2much6.

Apparently my husband doesn’t mind bacon leftovers as those disappeared last night!

Re: What's on your plate?

Looks amazing, @eshoe!

Re: What's on your plate?

Thank you, @CookieGirl1 - it was VERY filling, too 😋

Re: What's on your plate?

okie gangs I tried out this recipe on the weekend and it was a big 👋 The only I did differently is not peeling potatoes and cut them in slides just liked Olive Garden. I recommend this 😘

Re: What's on your plate?

@blackkitty2014 ,

Thank you so much for including the recipe!   Recipes add so much to this Thread!

Re: What's on your plate?

@blackkitty2014 This makes me want to make it this weekend even if it's in the high 70's/low 80's here.

Re: What's on your plate?

This looks perfect for this time of the year @blackkitty2014 - hearty, comforting, and delicious! 😋 Save me a bowl, please? I'll bring salad and breadsticks. 😉

Re: What's on your plate?

I was just setting out ingredients and didn’t see garlic listed. I printed the wrong recipe, this looks like a low-fat version. I picked up mild sausage, and have the right recipe now from Natasha’s Kitchen. 



Re: What's on your plate?

I hope your family will like it @eshoe 😘

Re: What's on your plate?

Thanks @blackkitty2014. I just looked at the bottom and noticed the bacon is for a garnish. I cooked the entire package, oops! 

I have never tried this at Olive Garden but it smells delicious so far.

Re: What's on your plate?

@eshoe  When is there a reason not to cook a whole package of bacon?  😂

Re: What's on your plate?

Thx @Sunnysmom @Ispend2much6 @eshoe . Pls let me know how that goes 😘

Re: What's on your plate?

I printed out the recipe and added it to my grocery list @blackkitty2014. It should be cool enough to enjoy a warm bowl of soup today, so if it pans out I will post a photo😉

Re: What's on your plate?

@blackkitty2014  I just realized the recipe calls for a whole head of garlic! I usually use that much in my 8 qt recipe for pasta sauce- so that isn't overwhelming?

I think I'll use the sausage I cooked a couple of weeks ago and put in the freezer, and canned potatoes I have on hand.  Should make it a little quicker. 🙂

Re: What's on your plate?

@Ispend2much6 Surprisingly I notice the onion more than the garlic and I’m not garlic fan as all. And yes, not sure if I seen potato can. I might have seen it but our potato price here is not that bad so I guess I over look 👀 them 😘

Re: What's on your plate?

@blackkitty2014  Fresh potatoes are better and healthier, but we have a little surplus of canned goods we bought during the pandemic so we need to use them up. lol  By the way, since you mentioned bacon, our price is just a little higher.  I wonder if your price went up so much because of the reason in the article in the spoiler:

Re: What's on your plate?

Mmmmmm garlic @Ispend2much6 😂 I like your shortcuts. I never peel potatoes, whether I mash or make fries, so I see where this could save some time. I didn’t even know canned potatoes were a thing!

Re: What's on your plate?

@eshoe  They come in whole new potato size and sliced!

I remember being served canned potatoes with butter at the elementary school cafeteria.  They're not bad with butter, lemon juice, and parsley or green onion.

They are more mushy than fresh potatoes, and have salt and preservatives.  

I have used them for potato salad, and it was okay but not my favorite.  However, they would work really well in a casserole or soup.  I might have to try them in a scalloped potato recipe to see how they do.

Re: What's on your plate?

Parsley and lemon mixed in sounds delicious, @Ispend2much6. My mashed potatoes usually just get garlic, butter, chicken stock and cream. My family doesn’t like parmesan cheese otherwise I would add that in as well.




Re: What's on your plate?

@eshoe  Your mashed recipe sounds great!  Will have to try that soon.
