Hi all,

Breakfast:

Fresh melon and pineapple (bear in mind I didn't get up til nearly 11 - it was a heavy night in Swansea!)

Lunch:

2 small slices wholemeal bread toast (HexB)
Scraping of countrylife spreadable butter (3.5 syns)
Co-op reduced fat brussels pate (1 syn)
Morrisons Chicken and sweetcorn cup a soup with croutons (5 syns)
2 babybel light (part of HexA)
Big salad with mixed leaves, tomatoes, cucumber, 1 tbsp Co-op reduced fat Thousand Island dressing (1 syn) - never again, yuk!

Snacks:

Packet of Walkers builder's breakfast crisps (6.5 syns)
Co-op freshly squeezed orange juice ice lolly (2 syns)
Melon
Pineapple

Supper:

Chicken breast coated in a small amount of flour and paprika, cooked in a bit of olive oil and butter (approx 5 syns)
Peas
Butternut squash bacon risotto from the EE cook book (free on EE)
Tiny amount of reduced fat cheddar grated (rest of HexA)

Dessert:

Strawberries
Pineapple
Grapes
Fat free fromage frais with sweetener


Wow!! That's loads and loads of food :(

If anyone can help me with the syns values for the ones I don't know I'd be grateful, but I'm sure it's well over 15, eeeeks!

Can it not freeze (never even done a risotto!)?
I usually do stews, bolognese, chili, etc...in bulk and then freeze...we usually have these every thursdays and fridays when there's nothing else left!
