    :confused:

    Last night we had a takeaway i checked all the values in my book the trouble was we dont just have a dish we have several and share them between four so its not a full portion... how would i syn it

    heres what we had :

    beef with mushrooms
    beef chow mein
    special chop suey
    rice
    and sweet and sour pork balls ( i did not have any of them :D)

    I am so confused as I had a little of each with exception to the pork balls ....

    Any help would be greatly appreciated :eek:

    Yes thats what I would do, just as long as the portions shared out were pretty much the same amount.

    Be careful though because the portions they give you don't always match up with SW's. I had a chicken chow mein the other day and weighed it and SW synned it at 380g but the actual portion was more than 500g.

    Blimey.. there's a thought.. will weigh mine in future. I usually stick to Syngapore Chow Mein and count that as 9 syns, as its a little like special chow mein with chillis. Thats really nice and tastey and you don't need any sauce as it is soo tastey too.

    I'd love to know what the sweet and sour sauce would be for a 1/3 of the portion, if anyone knows??x
