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?

I will definitely do it! Smiley Happy 


Re: What's on your plate?

That looks so yummy and not burnt at all.

I love crispy Panko bits. 

And this was your first attempt?

Great job!

Re: What's on your plate?

Yep! The cheese is yummy on it's own, but I had this feeling it'd be better melted into something... So I thought I'd attempt stuffing it into chicken breast.. Then I thought "Oh, I could add broccoli too!" I'm glad it wasn't a disaster! Smiley Very Happy


Re: What's on your plate?

Oooooo, I've had stuffed chicken before but never with broc and cheese! That looks delicious!!!!! Did you use fresh or frozen broccoli? 

Re: What's on your plate?

Frozen, but I put it into a bowl of warm water for a sec just so I could slice it vertically to fit more. Smiley Very Happy

The cheese is Land O Lakes and I got it at the deli the other day when my fave lady who works behind the counter recommended it and handed me a slice. (Gawd I love NJ grocery delis, we don't get treated like this at home in Maine haha)

Re: What's on your plate?

Can I just also say that I love panko????


My boyfriend made me stuffed chicken on my birthday the first year we got together, I think your post has triggered me to ask him to make it again.

Re: What's on your plate?

Panko RULES! So crispy and yummy and takes any seasoning so nicely.


Sounds like a plan, glad I could help!!

Re: What's on your plate?

Meal-enabling...because we're diverse here in's not ALL about the make up. LOL!

Re: What's on your plate?

my mom was diagnosed with dementia a few years ago.  the form that she has makes it hard for her to remember the names of thing and she looses her words.  After dinner she says to me "I want those bar things".

I run through every bar type item I can think of.  She is getting frustrated at me because I dont know what she is talking about.  Finally she says, "you know those things that weren't done."  Here I realize she is talking about some chocolate chip bars I made a few weeks ago.  


I followed the recipe which was wrong and I didn't have enough flour in them so they were like under baked chocolate chip cookies in the middle.  So, being the good daughter I am, I just took these out off the oven.  Just need them to cool a bit.



Re: What's on your plate?

I just printed your recipe out and added the pic to my growing "BT cookbook" lol What a story you shared, atleast you were a great daughter and made it again Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?





That looks delicious....recipe post???? Pretty please?

Re: What's on your plate?

They are super easy -

1/2 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

1 to 1 1/4 cup flour, sifted

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/8 tsp baking soda

1/2 to 3/4 cup chocolate chips


melt butter and let it cool to room temperature.  Add sugar, egg and vanilla - mix well.  Add dry ingredients gradually, blending well.  Pour into greased 9x9 pan, spread well.  Sprinkle with chocolate chips.  Bake for 20-25 minutes until set.


Notes - I sift all the dry ingredients into a bowl, then add it into the wet.  If you use 1 cup cup of flour, they will be more gooey in the center.  1 1/4 they are closer to a chocolate chip cookie.  You can start with 1 and work you way up.  It took me about 4 tries to get them to the right texture.  it is important to measure, then sift.  I love to warm up a chunk in the microwave and serve with vanilla ice cream. Mmmmmmmmm 😍😍😍😍

YUM! Thanks!

Re: What's on your plate?
