Tapas

#1
Hi everyone,
I have been lurking on these forums for a while, so hello :wavey:

Just wanted to tell you all about the lovely Tapas afternoon me and my friend hosted yesterday. We cooked a few things from the world of food book, and the new magazine. Most of it was Syn free, leaving us our syns for a few cheeky sangrias!
Most of the other guests didnt even notice that it was Slimming World food, and even the boys admitted it wasnt as bad as they thought 'diet' food would be.
Hope you all had a nice weekend too.

Sounds wonderful, mate- what did you cook?

I am having a barbeque on the bank holiday and am in need of some inspiration outside the stuff I normally do (and I have the 'World of Flavours' book, so some pointers would be nice)

Obviously your food was proof that 'diet' food is not just about lettuce

On the weekend I had a slice of Tortilla de Patata (but I'm sure that there must be a low syn alternative). When I go on SW there is a picture of one, but can't seem to find the recipe.
