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?

@Skunk12puzzola   Awwww, mold is bad.  Maybe overwatering?  I don’t know.  I’m still learning as I go.   Next year is your year!  I can feel it!  

Re: What's on your plate?

@heartsmyface thanks for all the recommendations!! I truly appreciate you so much, but I don't want to waste any more cloves, because I know that I don't have a green thumb for plants, but a black one 😂 I didn't overwater it because people told me to not do that, I don't know what happened but, that's ok. I'm upset about it, and for now, I will buy garlic from the supermarket haha

Re: What's on your plate?

Oh no @Skunk12puzzola !!! 😭😭😭😭 I am so sad!! I was hoping that they will start to grow, even slowly 😥 Well, you know how these things work: trial and error. Keep trying, different conditions, different times of the year... Sooner or later you will have your own beautiful garlic plants! I am sure of that!! 🤗🤗🤗 Thank you for taking us along with you in this beautiful journey, even if it doesn’t want to go the right way just yet 😘😘 It will happen!

Re: What's on your plate?

@Saradestin for some reason, I thought that you guys would be angry or upset at me because it didn't work out well....I followed all your precious advices but I guess, there is something that I still don't know about this beautiful plant. I don't think I will try again for now because I don't want to waste other precious cloves, but it was a fun experiment 😊

Re: What's on your plate?

@Skunk12puzzola  Nah, we’re sad with you.  I even looked up what could go wrong. Maybe plant some clover with it next time cause clover is great for providing nitrogen. And water it a little less.  moisture and nitrogen seem to be the main culprits. 

Re: What's on your plate?

Upset at you @Skunk12puzzola ???? NEVER!!! 

Re: What's on your plate?

@Saradestin haha thank you 💗💕

Re: What's on your plate?

@Skunk12puzzola. Ooohhh no!  I am so disappointed for you.  Maybe there's a better time to plant it so next year you can have all the garlic you want.


I just looked up how to grow garlic and some sites say the cold is necessary for the bulbs to form. I never knew that.



Re: What's on your plate?

@Ispend2much6  Oh cool!  So plant it before the last frost?   I have no intention of

 growing my own but now I need to know! 😅. We all know why I didn’t sleep tonight 

Re: What's on your plate?

@heartsmyface. Yes about 6 weeks before frost date. There needs to be some growth before dormancy.

Garlic is easy to grow in raised beds because there is better drainage and less rotting that way. The trickiest part is knowing when to harvest and curing the bulbs after harvesting so they dry enough to store well. I cured mine on our porch.

Quick shoutout to my latest obsession, these licorice candies. The brand is italian, the name is "Fini", but other companies do the same ones. These are filled licorice bites. There are 5 colors inside the bag, and each one has a different taste: the yellow ones taste like banana, the white ones like a milky vanilla cream, the green ones like minty apple, the blue ones like berries and the pink ones like bubble gum. I love them 🥰😋

Re: What's on your plate?

Oh these look similar to a shape found in 'Licorice All-Sorts' @Skunk12puzzola. And Basset's LAS was a fave of my mom's. The layered squares in L.A.S. are it !

Re: What's on your plate?

I can’t remember the last time I ate licorice candies @Skunk12puzzola ! 😅 Those look very good

Re: What's on your plate?

@Skunk12puzzola. Yummy! I've seen something similar here but the licorice is flavored not the filling.



Re: What's on your plate?

This looks cool, omg @Ispend2much6 🍭

Re: What's on your plate?

Here's my Mother's Day cake that my husband and kids got me. It's a Princess Torte Cake from Wuollet Bakery here in MN. The husband also made steak but the cake was the shining star 🌟 



Re: What's on your plate?

So lovely!, @NinaNee. Wonderful that the cake is as tasty as it is pretty!

Re: What's on your plate?

@NinaNee @Your hubby is a keeper 😘

Re: What's on your plate?

Wow! That’s so beautiful @NinaNee !! 😍

Re: What's on your plate?

@Saradestin yes it is so beautiful and taste just as good as it looks 

Re: What's on your plate?

@NinaNee This looks so pretty.
