    I know how u feel as my parents are like that! Stock is free, as long as it's cooked in frylight it should be free but pataks curry pastes are about 2/3 syns per tablespoon depending on the flavour.

    I just ask my dad not to use them in his soups anymore and he knows now to just use curry powder instead when I'm coming over.

    how about printing off the basic free food list and sticking it to the fridge. That way your dad can still cook for you, but will know exactly what is free :) and him being a chef means he will probably come up with some yummy SW friendly recipes for you too.

    Yes hun thats all free, but thats assuming your dad didnt saute the veg first in oil - in which case it wouldnt be free - I only say this as this is how my dad makes soup sometimes especially with onions in - I do myself tbh, but with frylight just warning you that there might be a hidden syn or two in there.

    Wish someone would make me more soup - i had the last of my superspeed soup today and cba making any more for tomorrow! can I borrow your dad?? x

    Hmmm I wasnt a great fan at first, I dont like home made tomatoey soups, so I was dubious - BUT saying that it really isnt soo bad - there gets a point where I cant physically eat any more out of the bowl but its very filling and full of good stuff! Its lasted me a few days and even hubby and kids have had some x
