    No pic, but roasted Brussels sprouts and seared scallops. It was delicious!

    Question. Why do ppl post pics here and not in the "what your meals look like section"?

    I would counter that and ask why not? The first page of this thread (which started last year) is full of pictures so it's always been a thing. I also think for some people there might be a thought of, "I'm posting pictures of what I made here and things that I didn't make but still ate in the 'what your meals look like' thread".

    Lastly, given that almost every post in the other thread contains pictures and pictures from on these forms upload especially slowly for me (and I'd imagine other people), it could also just be a case of people rarely if ever reading the "what my meals look like" thread.

    I agree. It's a visual medium. I tend to post more here than the other threads because I look at my cooking as usually "home cooking with a purpose," that purpose being movement towards fitness goals, and less emphasis on more "ambitious" cuisine. Attractive visuals is part of this, together with taste and underlying macro values.

    Mushroom onion gravy smothered pork chopped, potatoes and fresh steamed green beans.

    Also dear god the typos in that last post of mine. That's what I get for posting before breakfast.

    I use the other thread when I eat out. Seeing as I have out of town houseguests this weekend and will be eating out a lot in the upcoming days, posting tonight's homemade dinner here. Mongolian beef with sugar snaps, Indonesian tomato salad (lalab), peeled roasted paprikas drizzled with balsamic, rice.

    Appreciate it @aokoye @acpgee and @777Gemma888. It actually worries me that a good majority of quality food or quality discussion and product/lifestyle threads aren't on the Board anymore. Why this very one was started by me. Some of us aren't professionally trained. This was intended to create a community for budding home cooks/chefs/caterers - the family life, open for descriptions and/or photo logging (from process to plating, or just the plate), even tips.

    Value the food/meal photo blogs, especially the home prepared eats, so here goes this one, since Natty_or_Not's primary thread, has disappeared. [August 6, 2018]

    Not everyone's cup of tea, but I love liver & onions, I added garlic and some vinegar and it tasted delicious. I'm always worried about not getting my micronutrients so I look for foods that are nutrient dense. I had that with bell peppers and sweet potatoes on the side 🤤🤤🤤

    My Dad introduced me to liver and onions. I loved it! I don't eat it much these days.

    Bob's Red Mill 5 grain cereal with maple syrup and a few walnuts. Lots of beige and a lot of fiber :D :p

    I also like it with berries which add some purple to the beige.

    PLAN 'B' TONIGHT: Italian-ish cod stew served over rice. Was supposed to be grilled lemon-pepper cod outside, but an approaching rainshower vetoed that plan. Simple recipe: sauteed veggies to make the base, cod added at end to cook for a few minutes, then serve. Tonight, used a white and brown rice blend, garnish with scallions and basil. Haven't computed the macros yet, but should be pretty moderate. For scale, this is 1.5lbs cod, 28oz diced tomatoes, onion, green peppers, garlic, scallions, celery, white wine and chicken broth, herbs. Low or no sodium everything.
