    Well as u have prob all seen, im out for meal with work tomorrow and noticed that the baby boiled potatoes i had choosen to eat with my steak actually come with herb butter i rang the restaurants to ask if i could have them plain but they said these are cooked in bulk and the butter is already on them! So which is better these or the mash? (they do not serve baked potatoes as a side) I prefer mash but was goin for these as thought they were plain but now they equally have the same, surely mash wud be better than chips as this a free food anyway even though i no they add butter etc? Oh im so confused!xx

    Don't have chips obviously
    but i'd just count the butter used in either the mash or on the baby potatoes in your syns. If you prefer mash go for mash, surely they won't use loads and loads of butter. Just avoid cheesy mash

    I've never even heard of tabacco onions lol

    After having a little look in my book I would say....
    to count your butter at about 3 syns
    I'm not sure about the peppercorn sauce

    However, your having a meal out, you will end up not having a good time if you worry to much.
    I'd count your syns up after the meal, shrug it off, have less syns for the other days that follow and be glad you enjoyed your meal out

    You don't have to eat the potatoes at all. And you don't have to eat all the sauce either. Maybe have one potato and leave the rest, and push some of the sauce to one side.

    We are all conditioned from childhood to clear our plates, but we are grownups now, and nanny won't slap our wrists if we don't eat it all up!
