Well, the turkey is now no more and my freezer is fuller than it was. It took a while to strip the carcass and boil it up but was well worth the time and I can honestly say there has been very little waste this Christmas. All the sweet things have gone to Beth and Alex and I am left with lots of healthy stuff. It's nice to get back to normal again apart from finishing off the leftovers - makes me feel frugal, even if it isn't really!
Today, being Thursday, is SW group/weigh day and I'm a bit apprehensive but I don't think I've done too much damage in the longer term, even though I know there will be a gain this evening. Also tonight we're getting the new handbooks that reflect all the recent changes so I'm looking forward to that very much.
And here's today's plans.
B: ham and eggs
The Christmas ham - I'm not wasting that either!
L: yogurt, apple and orange
SW: one syn
D: after group, turkey-sagne, hi-fi bars
A bit sort of made up so I'll let you know how it goes.
SW: the dairylea is my healthy extra A, there might be a few syns from sprinkled cheese and the hi-fi bars are my healthy extra B
Ss: fruit, raw veg
Yesterday's dinner was absolutely delicious. The bubble and squeak cakes, sprouts, turkey, gravy and cranberry sauce. Half a healthy extra A for the cakes (some dairylea light) and two and a half syns for the gravy/cranberry sauce.
For the cakes I used some mashed potato, a bit of mashed sweet potato, some cooked and shredded sprouts and 40g dairylea light with a bit of salt and pepper. I made the cakes, sprayed them with frylight and baked them in the oven. Dead easy! I shall do them again in various forms.
