    Hope you all have a great bank holiday, we had ours (in Holland) last weekend, it was great weather too.
    I enjoyed the BBQ with an extensive salad buffet, several steak tartare's (1 in a bap) and a couple of prawn skewers (unmarinated but well seasoned and with a spray of fry light), it was all topped off with a big fresh fruit salad.
    I must admit not drinking was the hardest part, it's just not right to be stood behind the barbie without a beer :(

    Oh my other half drinks larger too xxx I never use to like it but i have now acquired a taste :) I am not going to bother lying to myself, no doubt i will be drinking a lot but i am going to be strict with what food i eat and keep to FREE foods and eat lots of super speed foods.

    I am also going to get out and do lots of body magic however our weather is meant to be rainy on and off for Saturday and Sunday so maybe no BBQ weather for us hun xxxx

    Oh i have such good intentions but there isn’t another long weekend until August so i am not going to beat myself up about it xxxx Neither should you xxxx

    Ive not tried it yet but here is the recipe(i cant spell to save my life lol)

    SYN FREE ICECREAM!!!



    3 Eggs Separated
    6-8 level Tbsp Splenda
    A few drops of Vanilla Extract
    350g Virtually Fat Free Fromage Frais

    Whisk whites till stiff then fold in splenda with a metal spoon.
    Beat yolks and add vanilla, add to egg white and then fold in fromage frais.
    Pour into a ice cream churn until mr whippy set or you can place in a freezer remembering to stir so the ice crystals don't set.

    I wonder if it tastes like the real thing??

    yuk! lemonade in wine or soda yuk yuk yuk,talk about kill the drink lol:D

    We're going to the hubby's nans for lunch on Sunday, 12 of us, but me and my sister-in-law are gonna cook a chicken each, so nan just has to do spuds and veg, and I'm gonna take salad so I can stick to plan. I don't tend to drink alcohol a lot, more Diet Coke, so I won't need to worry about that part :)
