Friday Weigh In!! (And another Recipe)

I am down to 293.4 lbs. So far, that is over 6 lbs lost in two weeks! I am getting really excited about this. Our bike is in today too, ready for pick up. That means that starting this weekend, Ronnie and I will be able to exercises on a daily basis, and we have no excuses for not doing it!!

Last night we had the BEST pot pie. It was so good, and only 10 points a serving!!

Turkey Pot Pie

(2 sm pot pies or one large one. 8 servings total at10 points a serving)

1 lb ground turkey breast (97/3)
1 package green giant immunity boost mixed veg, steamed in package
1 20 oz can green beans and potatoes, drained
1 can low-fat cream of chicken soup
1/2 c water
1/2 c 1% milk
1 T cornstarch
1 T water
1 T poultry seasoning
salt and pepper to taste

1 roll Pillsbury crescent dough

Brown meat and add the veggies. Heat through. Add soup, water, milk, and seasonings. Mix well to combine. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Mix cornstarch and 1 T water in a small bowl, add to mixture. Allow to simmer another 5 minutes. Turn out into 2 greased (with cooking spray) square glass baking pans or one large rectangular one. Roll out crescent dough just enough to press seams together. If using two pans, cut in half and stretch each half (gently) to fit the top of the pie. If using one, gently stretch to fit most of the top of the pie. Bake at 350 until bubbly and the topper is browned. Let sit at room temperature for at least ten minutes to cool and allow filling to set a little.

This was so good. Ronnie had two helpings, LOL. (Good thing he was low on points yesterday . . .)
