ETLC: Week 2 - Beef & Mushrooms, Homemade Gnocchi, Panko Chicken Breast

Monday, May 14, 2012

it has been a crazy week here - I'm still not quite ready to share my news, but I hope to be able to do so by the end of the week

as a result of being so busy (and my husband needing the computer more), I haven't had as much time to do my updates for my Eat To Live Challenge (ETLC), even though I've been making the recipes and taking the pictures, etc - so this is one big catch up post

the only part I regret is that I haven't been able to follow my fellow challenger's blogs as well, and so I only made one recipe this week from that

this is a quick and easy one for the slow cooker - and it works great over noodles or potatoes



here is the link to my recipe for it in SparkRecipes

TARANITUP made this awesome recipe with shrimp, asparagus, and gnocchi

after two unsuccessful attempt to find frozen gnocchi locally, I decided the recipe was worth the effort to make homemade gnocchi, it really isn't that difficult, especially if you boil your potatoes a day or two ahead and just keep them in the fridge until you are ready to make the dough

here is the homemade gnocchi made into Tara's dish



here is the link to my recipe for it in SparkRecipes (only the gnocchi)

as far as Tara's dish - I love it! I didn't have fresh lemon though, so I used some TrueLemon crystalized lemon and it worked just fine

emoticonPanko Chicken Breast

panko bread crumbs are awesome, and much easier to find these days, I suppose you could use regular bread crumbs, but it just wouldn't be the same - and I just had the thought, some of that crystalized lemon would be good in this, with a lot of pepper - I think I'll try that next time

hope you enjoy - and next week I'll try to space these as I do them, this past week just didn't afford the opportunity to do that - I'm glad I took the few moments to snap pictures though :)
