Have just had some lovely bananas and strawberries on 2 slices of WM bread for my breakfast.
For dinner tonight i was thinking of an experiemental dish...was gonna fry lite some onions and mushrooms, then put in a casserole dish with peas and sweetcorn. then add maybe a cup of rice, then about 2.5 cups of chicken stock. Add a few spices, maybe paprika... and serve with FFree garlic yoghurt. thinking it will be an easy dish that I can let slowly cook in the oven while I get the rest of the family sorted!! Have made the rice pudding a few times, last nite i added a celebration size dairy milk, grated up! was amazing- and low syn.
BTW. Does anyone else use their syns on alcohol :eek: ? I like to have a drink in the evening when kids. I would always choose this than say having mayo, or a bit of choc.

How did your risotto turn out?

risotto was very tasty, but i overcooked it...and the rice resembles mash!!! Oh well, will do it again, just not cook it as long!

Sounds good. Please let us know how you get on and would it be possible to post your recipe and cooking times if it goes ok ? Thanks very much.

Thanks Circes,

I will have a try of some of those. I wasn't specifically looking for a recipe at the time, just browing but maybe now I will !!!

I tend to cook the same things over and over but I'm going to make a shortlist of 3 things to try next and make sure that my shopping encompasses those ingredients. So now I just need to decide my shortlist of 3. How exciting.................:).

Thanks again and thanks for being an inspiration here that you can lose that much weight and keep it off. It really helps. I never dreamt that I might aim for a 'normal' weight when I started to lose, but now I really do think about that thanks to people like you :D
