    Someone suggested I keep a food diary here. So here I am. I always follow Green, as I'm vegetarian, but I'll try to remember to colour my diaries in green as well.

    Yesterday (20.11.12)

    2 Weetabix (HEB1) with 100ml skimmed milk (part of HEA1)
    Tomato and Herb Mugshot (free)
    Apple (free)
    Grapes (free)
    Baked bean lasagne (recipe below) (free, had a little low fat cheddar as HEB2)
    Strawberries (free)
    5 cups of tea (free) with skimmed milk (part of HEA1)
    20g veggie gummy bears (3 syns)
    Muller Light strawberry (free)

    I won't be having the Muller Light again as I noticed it contains gelatine. However, The Joker and I just got back from Asda laden with syn-free vegetarian yoghurts.

    Here's the recipe, think I found it on here and adapted it a bit.

    Baked Bean Lasagne

    Dried lasagne sheets
    2 tins baked beans
    1 tin chopped tomatoes
    1 large onion
    1 courgette
    1 carrot
    1 red pepper
    3 tsp Very Lazy garlic
    2 tsp vegetarian Worcestershire sauce (I use Biona, from my local health shop)
    1 tsp smoked paprika
    1 tsp mixed herbs
    Fry Light
    100g low fat cheddar

    1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
    2. Finely chop the onion, pepper and courgette, and grate the carrot.
    3. Spray a saucepan with Fry Light and fry the onion, pepper, garlic and courgette until soft. Add the carrot and cook for another minute.
    4. Add the baked beans, chopped tomatoes, paprika, Worcestershire sauce and mixed herbs. Stir well and cook for another five minutes or so.
    5. Layer the bean mixture and dry lasagne sheets in a rectangular pan. Top with the cheddar.
    6. Bake for 20-25 minutes until it's all bubbly and delicious.
    7. Try not to burn your mouth as you shovel it into your gob.

    Serves 4. Free on Green, as long as you count the cheddar as a Healthy Extra.

    This could be made vegan if you substituted the cheddar for vegan cheese. :D The Joker is not a vegetarian but he went back for THIRDS!

    It had a really rich smoky, almost BBQ-ish flavour because of the paprika. The Joker tells me it's definitely on the "would nom again" list! :)

    No need to feel piggy :) no one in my house likes mac and cheese so I never make it, but I do a lovely pasta were I chuck in loads of veg (peas, carrots, mushrooms, onion, courgette etc) and then stir in Kerry low low spread. Half a tub is one hea, so I chuck in a tub and a half for 3 adults and a toddler. Everyone loves it. And we aren't vegetarians but enjoy green days for the variety. That's aquickf and easy we recipe though that's adaptable to what your family like. :)

    Hope weigh in goes well tomorrow :)

    Pretty darned good day today, and another recipe!

    2 Weetabix (HEB1) with 100ml skimmed milk (part of HEA1)
    Salad of lettuce, cabbage and carrot (free) with 2 chopped Babybels (HEA2), pasta (free) and fat free French dressing (free)
    Lentil and bean shepherd's pie (recipe below)
    Shape Delights 0% yogurt, Vanilla and Chocolate Sprinkles (1 syn)
    Coke Zero (free)
    Two Alpen Light bars (HEB2)
    4 cups of tea (free) with 50ml skimmed milk (part of HEA1)

    Only ONE syn today!

    Tasty tasty recipe, Frankenstein'd from several recipes found here and on the SW site:

    Lentil and Bean Shepherd's Pie

    2 carrots, grated
    1 onion, chopped
    3 garlic cloves, crushed
    7oz red lentils
    1 tin green lentils, drained
    1 tin chopped tomatoes
    1 tin baked beans
    1 tin adzuki beans, drained
    1pt stock made with Vecon
    1 tsp thyme
    1 tsp mustard powder
    1 tbsp vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
    salt & ground black pepper
    7 or 8 medium potatoes, diced
    Fry Light, for spraying

    1. Spray a large saucepan with the Fry Light and cook the onion and garlic for 2-3 minutes until softened. Add the grated carrot and cook for a couple more minutes. Add both types of lentils and the stock and bring to the boil for five minutes.
    2. Stir in the chopped tomatoes, baked beans, Worcestershire sauce and thyme and simmer until tender and the red lentils have almost disintegrated (mine took 20 minutes or so, your mileage may vary). Transfer to an oven-proof dish.
    3. Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in a large pan of salted water with the mustard powder for 10-15 minutes until tender. Drain and mash, season to taste and spread over the lentil mixture. Make ridges in the potato with a fork.
    4.Place in an oven for 25-30 minutes or under a hot grill for 2-3 minutes until golden brown and bubbling.

    Serves about 6 (so you could freeze some for later!). Free on green.


    Again, my meat-eating Joker said it was amazing and he'll be eating the leftovers tonight. :D

    Heh, Wee Chum has a type of cerebral palsy as well, though you wouldn't know it to look at him aside from his 'magic glove' that helps his right arm to work properly. :)
