    Hi,

    Well I have my first of 2 Christmas meals on Thursday of this week, whilst I know life has to go on & I will have a bad week this week (my other meal is on Friday), I want to try & count how many syns are in my meal, would you be able to help?

    Starter
    Roast Tomato and Red Pepper Soup, Basil Crème Fraiche (v)
    MAIN COURSE
    Wild Mushroom, Brie and Cranberry Wellington (v)
    Buttered Brussels Sprouts, Honey Roast Carrots and Parsnips
    DESSERTS
    Tangy Lemon Posit with classic Shortbread, Mulled Wine
    Berry Compote
    COFFEE

    Coffee and Mints

    I almost certainly wouldn't have the coffee & I can't have the roasties which come with the meal as they are cooked in Goose Fat & I am veggie.

    Could anyone estimate how many syns I would be having so that I can count them?

    My meal on Friday is a buffet so I can be more select in what I eat rather than the set menu for Thursday.

    Thanks in advance
