Yesterday’s chicken curry dinner was one of my best, and almost syn free.
My additional ingredients to the chicken breasts to serve the two of us were:
a red pepper I’d forgotten,
a large onion,
3 cloves of garlic,
1oz of sultanas 1 syn
4 sliced closed cup mushrooms
1 teaspoon brown sugar 1 syn
1 chicken stock cube
1 teaspoon cornflour ½ syn
curry powder to suit personal palette
one cup of rice (Hubby)
jacket potato with side salad (me)
Luxury of desiccated coconut sprinkled on top 1 syn max
For a change, I served Hubby his meringue dessert like this:
Ginger meringue nests
9½ syns for the two as I used one crushed gingernut biscuit (2½ syns) and 2 chopped apricots (1 syn each) for the topping. The filling is natural quark.
My sweet tooth is making its presence felt at the moment so I am sticking to crushing a single meringue nest with fresh fruit and quark. Apricots are my B option and the gingernut biscuit is optional if I have syn leeway.
So far though, I have not weakened and joined Hubby in bars of chocolate. I can even walk down the confectionery aisle in the supermarket now without crying or listing towards the shelf.
We are however playing scrabble tonight which means a dip into prawn crackers (not prawn crackers in a dip, just crackers at 6½ syns for 25g).
Back to extra mileage on my walks, fruit salads
NO! Not those!!!
and veggies tomorrow thru Monday!
