Sunday is usually pasta night in the Elfy Eating house and tonight is no exception.
A great syn free, speedy side to have with a pasta dish is coleslaw.
It’s also handy to make if you’re feeling peckish, you can pick as much as you like as it’s all speed!
For today’s batch of coleslaw I’ve grated a carrot and finely sliced a red onion, 1 large spring onion and 2 sticks of celery (it was in the fridge and need using so why not?) and mixed with a sprinkle of sweetener plus salt & pepper to taste.
Add a good dollup of natural fat free fromage frais/yoghurt and mix well. Store in the fridge until ready and stir before serving 😘
Asda have today withdrawn their Slimzone range today! Click here to read the official Asda statement.
They say it’s a dog’s life but I think Sonny disagrees with that statement!
Poor mite can’t quite understand why he is not allowed on the sofa when the enemy (Ziggy the tabby cat) is… hmmm let’s see, 43kg worth of solid dog vs 2kg (wet) worth of cat??
But it doesn’t stop him trying!
Personally I reckon he spends the day practicing the “sad lab” look in the mirror – he has it mastered don’t you think? He does love his Mum though 💙
Another lunch of leftovers! A portion of Thursday’s Chinese five-spice meal (without the chicken) served with a freshly cooked portion of boiled rice.
I think I need to take a wee break from rice, I’ve now had it for 4 days running! I’ll be needing to move into a paddy field at this rate 🙈
I think I must be slightly odd (oi! whaddya mean only “slightly 😳) in the fact that I LOVE doing the weekly shop. To me, it’s a great opportunity to stock up (and clean) the cupboards and fridge. Normally by Sunday morning, all that’s left rattling round in the fridge is some brown lettuce, squishy cucumber and Saturday nights leftovers 🙈
But by 11am on a Sunday, ta daaaa!Yes, there are synful things in there too because you know what? It’s allowed. The plan seriously won’t work as good if you don’t utilize your syns (and boy do I use mine 😂)
Today’s special items areContinuing with the 80s vibe I couldn’t resist picking up a bit of cress to compliment my egg yogo (mayo, yogo, get it?)I enjoyed the Muller light Greek yoghurt so much I had to get some more in. I will try and eat these a bit more beatylike and less like the beast, but I’m not promising, it really is that good 🙈Casaerecce is my fav pasta and this one is on offer in Sainsbury’s at £1 a pack. Don’t rush to the Caldy Valley store today though, I got the last 2 packs…
You can the girl out of the 80’s but you can never take that 80’s out of the girl! Today I am modeling the double denim look and I just don’t care 🙈 (can you tell I’m bored waiting for the shops to open?)
Good morning folks!
Usual Sunday plans today. Weekly shop, food prep then something nice for dinner. Also waiting in for the builder to come and measure up, choose our window and set a start date for the garage conversion. How exciting EEK! 😜😬
What are your plans?
Well that’s me done! Time to put my feet up, find a film on Netflix and enjoy my weekly fix of wine..
White wine: 250ml = 9-11.5 syns depending on volume
Enjoy the rest of your Saturday night folks 😍
Well, I stayed on plan and stepped AWAY from the ribs (the juice looked so greasy, years of following SW helped me resist) but the boys gave them a big thumbs up 👍 And the Katsu curry with egg fried rice? OMG! Syn free using your healthy extra b? As if… 🙈
