    Hi all,

    I have been invited to an Xmas party where the food choice is a follows:

    Starter:
    1. Cream of Green Pea Soup with pastry fleurons
    2. Smoked Chicken Breast on a roasted chestnut salad and citrus dressing
    3. Fan of melon with a berry coulis

    Main:
    1. Roast turkey with traditional accompaniments
    2. Braised blade of beef servied with onoin and white wine jus finished with dijon mustard
    3. Supreme of red snapper served with a velvet fish sauce
    4. Bean and vegetable stroganoff in a cheese basket

    Pudding:
    1. Chocolate and Cherry tart with a cinnamon cream
    2. Classic lemon tart dressed with a strawberry compote
    3. Christmus pudding with brandy sauce

    Clearly nobody creating the menu is on SW!

    Basically my query is which of the above options do you think would be the least syns on SW? I was thinking of the melon, the red snapper and then not sure about pudding?

    Any thoughts would be appreciated

    Personally id choose melon, turkey with veg and either pass on pudding or the lemon tart?
    You can always ring ahead to the restaurant as they know you are coming and ask for just veg and no extra trimmings or if they could make you up a fresh fruit salad?

    Melon, red snapper and the lemon tart. And call that a week's syns.

    Of course, you could just not have any pudding. They aren't compulsory (who am I kidding!!!!).

    Thanks all.

    Think I will go for the melon and the turkey as they seem to be the best options from what you have said. I was tempted by the red snapper but actually i think "supreme of red snapper" means it will be in a really creamy sauce.

    Having spoken with my SW advisor she has told me to have whatever I really fancy as a treat so I think it might have to be the chocolate and cherry tart hehe - I will have nine months until the wedding to shift it from my hips!! hehe
