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?

@NinaNee 400?!  Holy poop, how long did that take you?

Re: What's on your plate?

@CookieGirl1 I didn't really time myself. I started early evening sometime and finished around 11pm. I watched a couple of documentaries and a lot of random YouTube videos. I don't rush and just take my time that way I don't feel burnt out since I do everything myself. I didn't make enough meat mixture so I had to make some more too 😅 I usually get myself mentally and physically ready whenever I make big batches like this since it will take me hours. I also made about 100 Sui Mai which was under what I had planned to make. I ran out of meat mixture too but called it a day.

Re: What's on your plate?

Wow, @NinaNee, you're amazing!  I assumed that you must have spent all day doing those.

Re: What's on your plate?

@NinaNee  Those look so delicious. I actually don't think I've ever tried a potsticker before.

Re: What's on your plate?

@PrettyPaint thanks, potstickers are my daughter's favorite.  You have to try it one day. Everyone makes it slightly different but always good.

Re: What's on your plate?

@NinaNee, these are beautiful!! 😍 Wow! You worked so hard. They look delicious. 😋 


2023 Goals

1. Get on NinaNee’s potsticker giveaway list 

Re: What's on your plate?

@itsfi thank you 😊 if you were close I'd so give you some. If it didn't take me so long I'd be willing to make these more often. The husband has said to me why do I make so much but I feel like if I am making them I mind as well make a lot and freeze them to enjoy whenever. I have now resorted to buying pre-made wrappers to cut time and it still takes long but it's ok because it's so worth it. 

Re: What's on your plate?

Awww, you’re so kind @NinaNee! 🥰 


I completely understand your making a bunch and freezing them. That’s really smart. It takes a great deal of effort to make dumplings / pot stickers and if you’ve gone through the effort of gathering all the ingredients and materials and will put in the work to make them, it makes perfect sense to make extra and freeze them. 

Those are generously sized potstickers and the folds on yours are exceptional. 😍 I tried a few times and well, let’s just say that no one has a problem if I decide to help out another way when my family makes dumplings. 🤣 Mine don’t usually keep their shape and they most definitely do not come close to looking like yours.

Re: What's on your plate?

@itsfi thank you and trust me, mines use to not look like this. I'm Hmong and I never grew up eating any sort of dumplings. I learned how to make potstickers in my early 20s and I would literally just make it flat with no folds because I couldn't do it. After a couple years and watching many YouTube videos on how to fold different types of dumplings along with eating many deformed shapes I've reached the shape I fold it at now. You will get there, just takes time and patience.

Re: What's on your plate?

Awww, thanks @NinaNee! You have such patience and dedication to master the art of making dumplings. Your daughter is lucky to have a mom who does this for her. That's really sweet. 

Re: What's on your plate?

Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Your friends and family are so lucky 🤩 Those are beautiful @NinaNee I bet they are delicious too *drool* 😄

Re: What's on your plate?

Thank you @CynthieLu everyone says they taste good. 

Re: What's on your plate?

I feel like I can tell just by how amazing they look 😅 they must be fabulous! 😄

Re: What's on your plate?

@CynthieLu awh thank you 😊 

Re: What's on your plate?

We made tosino with rice and veggies. Again...picture of leftovers. I had a fried runny egg on top of mine. Delicious!


Re: What's on your plate?

@Mellmars1185, mmmm, tosino and a runny egg! Yum!

Re: What's on your plate?

@Mellmars1185 that would be so yummy! I love my eggs the same way 😃

Re: What's on your plate?

@CynthieLu Thank you! It was a tasty and really easy dish to make! I also like that i get to have my veggies. Not all of my family enjoys them. Recently i have been putting them on the side so at least I can have them 😊

Re: What's on your plate?

Nachos with pulled pork


Re: What's on your plate?

Oh yum, @Mellmars1185, I love pulled anything and that looks so good!

Re: What's on your plate?

@CookieGirl1 Thank you!
