What's For Dinner?

For breakfast I had  1 1/4 cup multi-grain cheerios and 1 cup of Orange Juice.  On the Cheerios box they had a code for a website that gives you work out options and recipes too.  It had some good information and I may check it out later!

For Dinner I decide to make a Turkey Pot Pie because I can make it ahead of time.  We have kids events tonight and now I don't have to come home late and try to cook dinner.  

Turkey Pot Pie ( I am going to make chicken instead)
12 oz Turkey, breast, oven roasted, 56% less salt, fat free , diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/2 cup fresh mushrooms , sliced (or canned, rinsed and drained)
1/2 cup fresh chopped onion
1 cup Peas, green, sweet, frozen , thawed
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/3 cup low fat cheddar cheese, shredded
6 tbsp white all purpose flour
2 tsp low sodium baking powder
2 tsp dried parsley
1 cup fat free milk
2 eggs (or egg substitute)
2 tbsp fat free mayonnaise 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
 Combine the turkey, mushrooms, onion, peas, black pepper, and Cheddar cheese in a mixing bowl.
 Divide mixture among 4 individual casseroles or (10-ounce) custard cups sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray.
 Mix together the flour, baking powder, and parsley flakes. Then stir in the skim milk, egg, and mayonnaise.
 Spoon batter over the top of the casseroles and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
 Let casseroles set for 5 minutes and serve.

It was really good, but as you can see I added spinach  to make it a little healthier and because I love spinach!
