Do you like the new plates?
We saw them in the supermarket and decided to ditch our purple rimmed ones and the odd white one (below) and buy something pretty.
but decided to keep our plain stew bowls (this is today’s all veg dinner)and our current cereal /dessert bowls (yesterday’s dessert)
The new crockery is slightly smaller than those previous which will help with portion size, and as the pasta dishes are shallow bowls, we won’t be tempted to have big dinners with loads of sauce in our stew bowls!
2017 improvement list : Portion Control and Food Budget addressed! √
I have sinned big time in trying out some of the opposition’s biscuits when we had visitors.
WW go by a points system, but the ones we had (lemon and ginger cookies and a pack of oat digestives) equated to one syn each as listed in the SW diet planner.
At 85p a pack for 12 biscuits, don’t bother. There’s more taste in the wrapping, and in the case of the lemon and ginger, WW had a secret weapon in calorie counting.
Instead of 6 packs of 2 (OK, ideal solution for lunch boxes and treat control) we only had 5. Letter sent off to WW to complain about the short deal.
