    1.
    Trout with vegetables (to buy fresh)
    chinese salmon noodle box (to buy fresh)
    2.
    Jacket potato and salad
    Spagetti carbonara

    haven't decided on the following weekend yet. But so far this has cost me 46 pounds. and have already made loads of it

    Quorn bolognase made 1 lasagne and three seperate portions to defrost on demand. Made with 2x packs of quorn, 1 x passata, 1 x tin toms, 2 x onions, 2 x carrots, 2 x stick celery, mushrooms.
    0 syns and less than 4 quid for 4 meals!
    Meat has all been measured and frozen in individual bags, stirfry veg has been washed mixed and frozen in portions, sausage rools made (but not cooked) and portioned, just gotta take them out the night before and cook for 20 mins, falafels made, cooked, portioned and frozen, can chuck them in my bag and go to work, soup (leek and swede) has been made and frozen in portions, defrost in my bag ready to reheat at lunch, jacket potatoes have been cooked and frozen so just gotta put them in the fridge the night before than nuke them when needed, got additional veg to add to meals and enough fruit for 2 peices a day plus a mullerlight.

    So got very little to do for food over the next couple of weeks. Which being on my own i very rarely want to cook for 1 so good to keep me on track.

    I also gave up smoking on Saturday, Doing it on will power alone. Been smoking 12 years about 20 a day. Hasn't been too bad but had the odd moment, did light my other halfs cigarette last night then gave it to him as i was slightly drunk!!!!

    Which brings me to sunday.....

    Went to a bbq, and had

    a Whole Punnet of grapes,
    3 peaches,
    2 Apples
    Plum
    2 homemade burgers
    roll (Hexb)
    1 slice cheese (hexa)
    4 sausages - 10 syns
    tortilla chips - 5 syns

    Don't know syns for this so gotta guess

    Cider 375ml - 8 syns
    Corona - 5 syns
    Cocktails - not got a clue so 30syns? about 4-5 sex on the beach

    about 58 syns (oops)

    Just as well i've got a virtually syn free couple of weeks.

    Do Leek and Swede as it's free on both red and green unlike leek and potato which is obviously not free on Red.

    3 Leeks
    1 decent size Swede
    500-700ml boiling water
    1-2 tsp chicken bovril

    boil for about 1.5 hours, SEASON WELL. blend.

    I always add more black pepper on top of seasoning as this can be quite bland. makes 3-4 portions.

    Good luck giving up smoking, I will have given up for 3 weeks tomorrow so i know what your going through. At least planning and making all that food will have taken your mind off smoking!

    Good Luck again
