    Hi everyone
    Im meeting the girls on Saturday night for a catch up. This usually involves copious amounts of prosecco and crisps/dip!
    The OH is taking me out for lunch on Saturday too, to celebrate me being awarded my MSc so I really need to watch it.
    Drinks wise I think im going to stick to martini extra dry- diet lemonade/coke to minimise the booze syns. Any other ideas welcome!
    I thought I could do some sw friendly nibbles- so far im thinking homemade hummus with veg sticks, mini sw quiches and maybe some kind of chicken skewer with the syn free BBQ sauce.
    Anyone got any other ideas? I have a vegetarian friend and also a lactose intolerant one lol!
    TIA!

    For the veggie and lactose intolerant friend I would maybe do some vegan dishes and please both of them? How about a bowl of luso beans (black turtle beans, cherry tomatoes, red peppers, passata and garlic), mushroom/pepper/tomato skewers, chickpea and spinach falafel (Tesco sell frozen Everyday Value ones that cost £1 and come in at half a syn each), tomato and onion pasta/savoury rice (check it's milk free - Tesco have some), cocktail sausages made from Linda McCartney sausages etc?

    Ohh thanks for that!
    I love the sound of the spinach and chickpea falafel- I tend to jump to the conclusion that shop bought=high syn so thats really useful to know!
    Luso beans sound yummy too, and veg kebabs/pasta are nice and easy :)
    Thank you!

    Maybe some chicken cut in to chunks, marinated in yoghurt and curry powder then baked or grilled - serve with cocktail sticks

    Am sure theres a free bhaji recipe on here somewhere - have with a free raita

    And for sweet tooth people - a tub of quark mixed with a sachet of white choc options (2.5 syns) and some slices of crispy red apple to dunk in it

    I like to get a sandwich bag and put chunks of fresh chicken, lemon juice, paprika, garlic and pepper in it, then once marinaded in bag( rub the pieces in bag for 5 mins then leave to settle for 30 mins then spread on a baking tray and stick in the oven to cook, once cooked I pop them on skewers and have them with a syn free relish of some sort, or it's really nice in a salad or on some pasta shapes too.
