Something New Thursday - Week Two!

Lots of entries this week, it's so exciting! (well, for me, anyways!)

Remember to take the Something New Challenge! Try ONE new thing this week, and send me a picture of it to have it included in next week's post! It's a fun way to show off your culinary creations and to keep your taste buds happy! :)

Christine, a wonderful friend (and amazing cook, I must add!) made this banana bread from the Looneyspoons Collection. She said they didn't last long in her house! They're called Cookies for Rookies and are basically an oatmeal and peanut butter chocolate-chip cookie. They're now on my must-try list!

Christina made these balsamic grated carrots for a side dish and really enjoyed them. It's a simple dish to make, using grated carrots, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, a sprinkling of sugar and salt and pepper. She said that the sugar probably wasnt really needed. Looks delicious! One point per serving.

Cindy made this fantastic-looking pasta dish from the Looneyspoons Collection. It's made with sun-dried tomatoes, bacon, mushrooms, spinach and chicken. Doesn't it look great?! She loved it! Eleven points per serving.

This week, Daddy Lego made a delicious bruschetta for a BBQ on the weekend (will post the recipe later this week!). We had lots left over and used it as a pasta sauce. We topped it over Catelli Smart high-fiber penne, sautéed mushrooms, and chicken. A-m-a-z-i-n-g. So much flavor!!

Christine also sent in this picture of Sweet Home Alabanana! It's a banana bread made with chocolate chips, oat bran, pecans and lots of cinnamon! From how much she raved about it, I think she'll be making it again :)

And that wraps up the second week of SNT! Thanks to all who sent pictures!! :)
