    Dont know if im in the right place gulp, but if not then could a kind mod please move it to its appropriate spot but i thought this thread might help us all thru the festive season.
    Now no doubt alot of us will be out and about over the next 2 weeks partyin and having fun but in the corner lurks the dreaded buffet table with its aroma of pies and sandwiches waffting over our noses while we sit there watching our partners & others munching away, grrrrrrr so why dont we ask you pro's if theres any titbits, snacks or treats on the buffet table we can tuck into without the guilt trip kicking in, or am i just bein daft!

    These days the buffet looks to be full of iceland goodies, alot of indian spicy snacks etc.

    well i assume on a red day one could dive into the prawns, crabsticks and meats available and ditch the bread, but can one resist the pork pies and Cateau whilst looking? arrrrrrrr no cheating.

    Hope this helps

    If you’re throwing a party, the world’s your oyster when it comes to the spread. There’s no limit to what you can make with loads of Free Food, a few Healthy Extras and the odd Syn here and there. What’s more, if you’re worried about serving ‘diet food’ to your guests – don’t be! Because Food Optimising uses basic, everyday foods, no-one will be any-the-wiser (I bet you won’t be able to keep it a secret though!)

    A buffet blow-out -

    2 mini pork pies (20 Syns)

    1 medium sausage roll (11½ Syns)

    57g/2oz quiche (10 Syns)

    1 filled mini vol au vent (3 Syns)

    1 vegetable samosa (8 Syns)

    2 level tbsp sour cream dip and
    4 ritz crackers (9 Syns)

    1 mince pie (11 Syns)

    113g sherry trifle (10½ Syns)

    2 small glasses of red wine (10 Syns)

    A whopping 93 Syns on Original!


    lots of thickly sliced lean ham/beef/chicken/salmon
    (Free on Original)

    unlimited Quorn sausages on sticks and chicken drumsticks (skin removed) (Free on Original)

    Slimming World Free quiche

    Cheese and garlic stuffed mushrooms (Free)

    Slimming World onion bhaji
    (1 Syn on Green and Original)

    heaps of party dip and crudités (Free)

    1 mince tart* (3½ Syns)

    Slimming World jewelled fruit trifle
    (2 Syns)

    2 glasses of Festive Fruit Punch*
    (3 Syns)

    A heavenly 9½ Syns on Original

    I will post the above recipes in the recipe thread section so you can make them if you want
