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?

Good call! Not to mention all the stews and casseroles to make.....drooool!

Re: What's on your plate?

Let me know when you commit, as I have a lot of recipes scanned in for cooking in one. Can either hook you up on FB or let you know which books they came from.

 

I have an 80% love with my Hamilton Beach oval 6qt. It is programmable to either an internal temp, a specified length of time in 30 minute blocks at either Hi/lo, and manual hi/lo/warm. The 20% dock is because the unit is a little cheaply made is all. $45 it is hard to complain y'know?

Re: What's on your plate?

Ooo, the blender I have is from Hamilton Beach, the slow cookers I have glanced at are programmable. I was actually considering on when I was still regularly working out because it would be a pain to try to rush home, cook/work out, then shower and try to eat at a decent time still.

 

 

Re: What's on your plate?

Your casserole recipe sounds delicious and pretty easy to make! How long does it usually take for the pot of chicken and veggies to boil?

Re: What's on your plate?

No long at all, Randee! I actually get the pot of water on the stove first at about an 8 or inbetween the medium to high setting so it comes to a slower boil. At that time, I begin chopping up the chicken, I use two breasts that I butterfly and trim the fat off. I do chunks the sizes of what's in a hearty chicken noodle soup, throw those in, and by that time the water is getting hot. I go to cut the carrots from there (I also preheat the oven at this point), add those at the same time as the frozen peas, then toss in the noodles and let boil. I was lazy and used a box of the wheat rotini noodles and Velveta this time. Once noodles are cooked up, I strain it all, then it's back on the slow on medium/low head, add in the can of soup, Velveta pack, half a can of milk (too lazy to use a measuring cup so I reuse the can from the soup), stir until everything is evenly mixed and coated. By now the oven's preheated, I pour out the mix into the pan, sprinkle bread crumbs (I had Italian seasoned ones) and cheese, pop in the oven just long enough for the crumbs to get a bit baked and the cheese to melt, and TAH-DAH!

Re: What's on your plate?

Definitely trying this! It sounds delicious! Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

It was my bf who suggested I add the cream of mushroom soap as the Velveta pack from the noodles alone wouldn't have been enough. I did add in some salt, pepper, onion powder, and spices to the mix, nothing fancy, so it's definitely capable of being seasoned up to your liking!

Re: What's on your plate?

This is what I had last night: Fettuccine noodles, asparagus, and a little sausage, all mixed with olive oil and italian seasoning. It's simple but yummy!DSCN0544.JPG

Re: What's on your plate?

I love asparagus!!! How did you cook those up?

Re: What's on your plate?

I steamed them! Asparagus is me and my man's favorite veggie so I try to put them in a lot of stuff just so he gets more greens! Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

That's so sweet of you! My bf and I take turns cooking and like to incorporate faves into meals too! That way both parties are happy and so are our bellies!

Re: What's on your plate?

OMG steamed asparagus. little bit of salt. *sigh*

Re: What's on your plate?

I knoooow! I had a recipe for asparagus in the oven topped with sea salt, fresh cracked black pepper, and right before it's done you throw on some mozzarella with crushed pistachios so they crisp up and melt together a bit...soooooo good.  

Re: What's on your plate?

I am definitely trying this. Thanks!

Re: What's on your plate?

Happy to share!

Re: What's on your plate?

That sounds like an amazing recipe! I need to try it! 

<3, Randee

Re: What's on your plate?

It's super simple!

 

Oven to 425, throw some clean spears of asparagus onto the pan, lightly toss some olive oil and distribute. Sprinkle on salt and pepper to taste/preference, stick in oven, bake for 12-15 mins, about 5 or so minutes before open it up, toss on the cheese and crushed pistachios, close back up to finish baking.

 

I love the variety in textures for it! 

Re: What's on your plate?

Sounds delicious! I'll let you know after I try it!

I made pizza today.  It was perfect for the first Sunday for regular season football. Mmmmmmm

Re: What's on your plate?

My mouth is watering right now, beautyjunkie!!

Re: What's on your plate?

CHUNKY mushroom slices!!! Love it! I hate when mushrooms are cut so thin they're like toasted slivers on a pizza, I'm a mushroom fanatic! Big, hearty pieces like that make my tummy happy! Those pizzas look delish! Did you cook them on a pan/sheet or right on the rack?
