Today is Sunday and my partner is off down south for a course. ‘Let’s go out for Sunday dinner before I go’ they say.
Now, they did want to go to the local pub but I looked at the menu and there were a lot of ‘honey glazed’ this and ‘deep fried’ that with ‘mashed’ other. Now I could sit down and work out every syn for every part and to be quite frank with you I couldn’t be bothered today.
So instead I asked if we could go to the Toby Carvery nearby, there was a slightly grumpyness at this but *shrugs*
Anyways I had the king size and trimmings, should point out at this point I gave one of my Yorkshire puddings and the sausages to my partner though so don’t stress out about that!
So according to my working:
Carrots = free (speedfood)
Cabbage (red and normal) = Free (speedfood)
Peas = Free
All meat had the fat trimmed off – pork,beef,turkey = free.
Gravy 1 portion = 1syn
Onion in gravy = 0.5 syn
Yorkshire pudding (I gave one to partner) = 4.5 syns
Roast potatoes x 3 = 2 syn per potato so 6 syns.
and a nice pepsie max (0 syn) so all in all 12 syns.
Doable if you’re on 15 syns a day, I think I’d be tempted next time to splash out and have another yorkshire pudding and some mashed potato but I’m pleased that I am under syns for the day. I have something nice planned for dinner and nothing else with syns planned for the day so we’ll see how it goes.
