The Good, The Bad and the Naughty.

I got caught out on this one.
I love quiche, and as Hubby fancied simply soup and a couple of bread rolls for his main meal today, I thought I’d have something I didn’t have to cook for a change. I also bought some beetroot, something I’ve found in the past that I could eat as the pickled variety, but not fresh as it triggered migraine.

SW have a web site and as a member logging in, you can access anything you purchase in the food line to find its syn value. This is excellent for people like me with a sweet tooth, who sometimes compulsively shop, or perhaps get carried away and forget ‘the little things’ in the fanciful line (like pastry).
naughty quiche quiche and carrots
The Good:
Lettuce, sweetcorn, tomatoes, carrots, mushrooms, beetroot, salad vinaigrette
The Bad:
Quiche, even though only a small 100g individual serving, attracted a massive 13½ syns.
The good news is that there is a crustless variety which knocks 4 syns off, or I could make my own from one of the SW recipes, or revert to an omelette and throw in the rest.
The Naughty:
I’ve had my meringue and gingernut peach dessert today too.

Ho Hum. Another weekend generating a pullback exercise! Need to rethink my calendar.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Looks yummy tho! 🙂
    Are you not allowed like a ‘cheat day’ once a week or so?

    • No cheat days allowed intentionally, and I didn’t realise how many syns the quiche had until it was too late. I’ll just be extra vigilent between now and next weigh in, and guess my stone and a half certificate will elude me for another week.
