what to have when we are out...

any ideas?
when i am out shopping etc i never know what to buy for my dinner

but lately i have been getting a boots meal deal, so i buy
- a king prawn noodle salad (3syns)
- fruit usually, sometimes a yogurt (shapers strawberry yoghurts are 1/2 syn)
- water

i have looked in the food directory and some from tescos sounded lovely, shame they never have them in HAAAA

any other ideas?

When out and about shopping for new, smaller clothes (!any excuse!), I pick up snack packs of hard boiled eggs from a Morrisons. I always eat those and grapes in the car. If actually needing to have a sit down lunch I can use pretty much any food hall, as I generally opt for a baked tattie with either cottage cheese (even if it isn't V low fat, it's mega-low syns, and filling). I'm not much into sarnies, but remember that if you choose brown bread you can deduct 6 syns if you use it as a HEb.
Days at work that I buy lunch I use the local bakers, cos they humour my picky-odd demands. I have a two-egg, dry fried roll on brown, or a baked tattie no spread and heaps of beans. They chuckle at my two egg-rolls....they call me greedy (in jest), but then in the next breath one will ask if there's something different about me...! I haven't quite spelled out I've lost a heap of weight, with my greedy ways! hahaha

Well you learn something new everyday ! thankyou Mojomcl, I never knew that you could buy hard boiled eggs, I do like to have these in my pocket for mid morning snack or to add to my lunch when away from home,now I know I can at least buy them instead of having a panic if I havent had time to boil them in the morning.

I've only ever found them in Morrisons, and my nearest one is a 45-60 minute drive away...hence the reason I only get them on a day out shopping in Inverness or Aberdeen! They do them near the sandwiches, in a little pack of two and even a wee thing of salt 'n' pepper! Scrummy!

i will look out for the morrisons boiled eggs,i often have baked potatoes with beans or cottage cheese,omlettes with ham&tomato,cold meat salad,poached egg on toast,bacon sandwich,bacon eggs and tomatoes mushrooms,:)

If Im on the run out shopping, then I have a packet of ham slices and some fruit salad to snack on and go on a Red Day, or failing that the good old jacket potato and baked beans!
