Hi all!! I dont normally send out requests, but this time I am stumped! Lol.
Apart from my Birthday on Wednesday (not celbrating that one!), its my Daughters party on Sunday. Some of my guests are SW followers and have said that they will go without food for the day....considering they are my family and travelling from Wales...its only fair to feed them Lol!!!
I want to make some SW friendly buffet things...cant be hot though as having party at a Leisure centre. We have to cater for the children and other adults as well, but I thought things like chicken drumsticks are ok and some mini quiche...but what else??

Please, please can you help me rack the old grey cells as Im at a loss!!! Lol

Thank you in advance!!

Ohh er, got me thinking now. Pasta/rice salads for those on a green day. Chicken/pork/beef etc chunks flavoured on cocktail sticks, ham and cheese wraps (free ham, hex a cheese), mini beefburgers (if not minded cold), syn free sausages on a stick. Can't think of anything else but I hope this helps a little and that all have a fab day xxxx

Cheese and pineapple on sticks, vol au vonts (puff pastry is low in syns not sure per case but in tesco they sell them as cases), samosas, spring rolls, cold pasta salad, potato salad, fruit skewers, rice salad
How about sugar free jelly with fruit in. The frozen bags of summer fruit are great with blackcurrant sugar free jelly. Non SW would love it too. Put separate bowl of cream to top for those not watching the syns. Will post if the brain cells think of anything else. x

Can only think of rice salad, boiled eggs, tuna & quark on cucumber slices. There's a recipe for polenta bread on here somewhere, I've made that & its very nice. For pud how about fresh fruit with low fat greek yoghurt.

Have a lovely day & save some syns for the wine which you WILL need later :)

Some great ideas here, I'm doing a little party for my son's birthday on sunday too and want to do some sw friendly food as me and my sister are both doing sw, hopefully no-one else will notice as it all sounds so yummy x
i was about to say the onion bhajis i make them all the time
also stuffed eggs and tomatoes are gorgeous potato sticks with a chickpea dip god i am hungry now lol
How about making some dips and serving with crudites?
Make some hummous by whizzing chick peas with garlic, lemon juice, seasoning and a bit of water.
Do a cheese and chive dip with FF Fromage frais, a tbsp parmesan and chives or a garlic and herb one?
For a dessert you could always make some very low syn mousse. All you need is a packet of sugar free jelly, a corresponding flavour Muller and an electric mixer!!!

Put about half a pint of water into the fridge. Leave this to cool (I only do this so the jelly sets quicker!)

Make the jelly up with only 1/4 pint of boiling water, and add the refrigerated water up to the 3/4 pint level.

Pour this into a LARGE bowl and refrigerate.

The jelly needs to be PARTIALLY set. (If you let it get too solid, you end up with bits of set jelly in the mousse). This will take anything from 1/2 - 1 hour. I generally describe this as the 'sloppy stage!'

Remove from fridge and add your Muller. Don't panic if the Muller sinks to the bottom!

Using your electric mixer, whisk, whisk and whisk some more. The resulting mousse mixture should almost double in size.

Pour into bowls/dishes/glasses and refrigerate to set. Or for ease of carrying, leave to set in the fridge, in the large bowl and just scoop it out when you get there?

By the way, the whole bowl works out as 1 1/2 syns (just for the jelly). Flavour combinations that I think work are;

Strawberry jelly with Strawberry Muller
Raspberry jelly with Raspberry and cranberry Muller
Orange jelly with Mandarin Muller

Another one that I tried and liked (but not EVERYONE liked it) was Lemon and Lime jelly with vanilla Muller.

HTH. Have a great party!!
