Hi love, hate to be the bearer of bad news, but that sounds like a bit of a syn filled meal! No specific syns for Cafe Rouge online but have tried to adapt a bit: -
Basic/Non Branded Foods Duck, meat, fat & skin 28g roasted

4 Syns on Extra Easy
Original 4 Syns
Green 6 Syns

Basic/Non Branded Foods Dressing, Plum sauce 1 level tbsp
2 Syns on Extra Easy
Original 2 Syns
Green 2 Syns

Can't find anything for the potatoes, but I think they are cooked in cream...
But don't worry these things easily happen xx

I had a bit of a rocky start on SW. My Consultant recommended making a diary of exactly what I was eating. It highlighted several bad things I was eating, which I hadn't realised were piling on the syns and screwing up my plan.

My Consultant works in my office during the day, so keeps an eye on me and keeps me on the straight and narrow.

The first week I made the diary I scared myself with some of the things I put down, checking them in the book as I went along.

It is well worth doing though, good luck Miss Helpme.

Your right it is worth doing and that is why i have now started the diary. I will always appreciate peoples comments on what i eat and any ideas are more than welcome too... Plus i hope it will keep me on the straight and narrow with it too haha
