Good evening, everyone.  It feels really odd posting this in the evening!

As I didn't blog over the weekend, I thought I'd just show what I actually had Saturday and Sunday as photo collages.

B:  breakfast wrap
L:  cheg, salad; orange (three and a half syns, one healthy extra A)
D:  chicken and bacon pasta; two easy peelers and some strawberries (one healthy extra A)

What I ate today on Slimming World:

I had an apple before Circuits and this afterwards.  Two eggs, one slice of bacon and one big mushroom.  I added some leaves to the tomatoes for a bit of extra colour.  Delicious and syn free.

Lunch was leftovers from last night (which was leftovers from Sunday lunch!)
The pasta bake had one and a half healthy extra As and one syn (gravy) and I added two syns worth of salad dressing and one syns worth of mixed seeds to the side salad.
Afters was an orange.

When I looked at the recipe (from the SW site) for dinner, I realised it was pretty much the same as the leftovers pasta bake except with sliced potato instead of pasta and cheese.   As I had used up all the leftovers, this was a good opportunity to use up odds and ends and freezer bits.  So it's leek, peas, squash and broad beans with chicken and a gravy made from some fresh stock (made with the carcass) and some pigs in blankets gravy granules (one syn).  As the potato slices were pre-par-boiled, it all did pretty quickly in Nellie.
Really tasty, it was.
Dessert was strawberries and yogurt rather than just a piece of fruit.  Very nice.

Exercise:  Groove class, walk there and back, housework
