    Had roast potatoes on my sunday roast at daddy's house. He cooked them in a little olive oil. Prob had 5, maybe 1 potatoes worth. Was going to use about 3 syns for the oil?

    Also had 2 glasses of high juice cordial. It says on the SW webpage, 3 syns per 250ml glass as directed, but I used way way less than the recommendation as I knew it was high sugar. Rekon 3 syns for both would be fair?

    And lastly, the worst one, he had some thorntons choc coated fudge pieces on the side and 3 just jumped up and into my mouth. Cant find anything too specific on these on SW. I was thinking maybe 2 syns each, is that coo conservative?

    I'd say the roasties are way, way more than 3 syns. A medium/small potato is about 200g so about 8 syns on EE/Green or 16 on red.

    Roastie syns, from the website:
    Green/EE:
    Potatoes, roast, in oil, 28g = 1
    Potatoes, roast, in oil, 1 medium = 2½
    Potatoes, roast, in oil, 1 large = 4

    Red:
    Potatoes, roast, in oil, 28g = 2
    Potatoes, roast, in oil, 1 medium = 6½
    Potatoes, roast, in oil, 1 large = 9½

    I figured when it said 1 medium, it meant 1 medium whole potato, and as my roasts all together would be about that I rounded up to 3. He used a small amount of olive oil to make them all so surely it's just the syns for that? Suppose it would have been 1 tbsp max, so that's what? 6 syns?

    Well if he only used 1tbsp then yeah it'd be 6 syns for the lot, but I'd find it hard to roast all me potatoes in that... but then Im a roastie-o-phile, so hey... :D

    For 'normal' roasties I'd just go by the weight to avoid how big 'medium' is. I just weighed what I'd call a 'small/medium' potato that might make 5 or 6 small roasties and it was just over 200g, so 8 syns.

    Anyhoo, you've eaten it now, hope it was good :)
