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?

@mishanyc yes, baking together this time of the year will make some great memories ☺️ I loved when my daughter was that little, to have her next to me while baking. We used to have her friends over for Christmas cookie decorating, she really enjoyed that, too.

 

I used to let her mix old spices together with water and a little flour to keep her busy, and she would insist on putting her ‘dough’ into a bread pan in the oven. I would put it in and my husband would keep her occupied for a few minutes while I removed a baked loaf of banana bread from the freezer. I would switch them out and present her with her ‘sauce bread’ as she called it. She knows better now, but it was funny at the time.

Re: What's on your plate?

@eshoe That is such a cute story. It sounds like so many great memories can be made in the kitchen. Yesterday we worked on peeling hard boiled eggs for her snack.  She definitely loved it. I'm a beginner I the kitchen so I'm sure it'll be an experience for us both. 

Re: What's on your plate?

@mishanyc oh that sounds like it must have been fun! It’s so easy to take those things for granted, but they really are special mini adventures, just learning to navigate the daily stuff💗

Re: What's on your plate?

@eshoe. That is perfection! Seriously it looks like it came from a cookbook.

Re: What's on your plate?

That’s because you don’t see the cracked top I used as the bottom cookie, @Ispend2much6 😉

Re: What's on your plate?

Yum that looks great @eshoe !

Re: What's on your plate?

Thank you, @Kim888! I think I will continue to work on my process, hoping the next ones look even better.

Re: What's on your plate?

@eshoe This looks amazing.  I have always wanted to try to make them.

Re: What's on your plate?

I think you would enjoy it, @SportyGirly125

Re: What's on your plate?

Wow, this looks fantastic, @eshoe!

Re: What's on your plate?

Awww thank you, @quspork! Sadly the remainder are still in ‘as is’ condition and are just being eaten as cookies😂

Re: What's on your plate?

Ooh looks great still @eshoe . My son is asking for this. We should try soon 😋

Re: What's on your plate?

It’s a fun project, @blackkitty2014. Any ideas on flavors you might try? I have matcha powder and might try that next time.

Re: What's on your plate?

I wanted to use the last of the season berries for a treat for my husband to take to work (and keep a few.)  I saw some beautiful raspberries and blueberries (the absolute best blueberries of the year are out now- if you see the ones from Peru, grab them!)

Berry cakelets.  From Smitten Kitchen but I can't remember the name of it.

Re: What's on your plate?

@lmaster. Okay but bring ypur makeup so we can share.

Re: What's on your plate?

@Ispend2much6 @lamster Omg your comments made my day.

Re: What's on your plate?

@SportyGirly125 @Ispend2much6 I wish I had the talent or patience to learn to do these fabulous recipes!!

Re: What's on your plate?

@lmaster  Rest assured, if you see me sharing a recipe/dish, it's easy to do.

Re: What's on your plate?

@SportyGirly125  @lmaster 's got a great sense of humor. 🙂

Re: What's on your plate?

Those look delicious, @Ispend2much6. Smitten Kitchen has some good recipes! Sally’s Baking Addiction is another good one.
