I've had Brunch today as I was too late for brekfast and too early for lunch.

I ate 2 Morrisons eat smart Cumberland sausages (half a syn each), 1 rasher of bacon, baked beans, fried egg and a slice of toast.

That should tide me over till dinner which is a burger with a babybel hidden inside, onions, sw chips and corn on the cob followed by Apple Betty that I'm making for the 1st time today.

I made a huge pot of veg soup using up all the veg I had left over from the week .... onions, carrots, celery, butternut squash, mushrooms, 2 potatoes, garlic and added a tin of mixed beans and lots of herbs. I whizzed it a bit with a hand blender but its still nice and chunky. Absolutely gorgeous and Free on Green :)

Hi - well my lunch was a bit of a funny mix, which was just using what was in the fridge ! I had mackerel in tom sauce, sprouts and then dry fried onion, leek and sweetcorn, it was pretty good. The rest of my day (breakfast (HA+HB) and snacks (Free)) has been neutral so far, so I'm not sure if its better to go red, green or EE now !

These are gorgeous... good size, very filling, and they go nice and crispy on the outside. The texture is nothing like the Quorn fillets at all. They are bloody gorgeous... my OH hates anything like Quorn etc and even he said they were gorgeous and could I get more of them.
On offer in Asda at the minute for £1.
DEF check them out, they are delish.
The box they come in tho, the picture does NOT do them justice tho so dont let that put you off.
Enjoy. ! ! !

I'm sorry to break a few bubbles here but most of the Asda meat free range is not syn free because it's made of soya protein and not quorn. Most has only a small syn value but worth remembering and therefore not superfree either.

It's awful to be the bearer of bad news but it's better to be aware of the 'syn pits' than to go on blissfully unaware.

I didn't think the Asda stuff was syn free, i was surprised but it seemed reasonable that the fillets were.

TESCO Lincolnshire meat free sausages, which is what I have, ARE free though. :D
