What to have for Lunch?

Postby Fairie » Wed Nov 22, 2006 10:09 pm

It's after 11pm and I'm trying to thing of what to have for lunch tomorrow. My parents are coming and they have their main meal at lunch time and are country folk who just like there meat, veg & mashed potato with heaps of gravy. Now my problem is I too love my meat & mashed potato with heaps of gravy and I know if I cook this I will be eating it too. :oops:

They don't like rice, pasta, stirfries or salads, this is so difficult :?

If you're strong, you could save all your calories for the day for this one meal and enjoy meat mash and vege with your parents.
Just go low on the mash and double up on the veggie serving.

go the meat, but make low fat mash (use some of the Philly extra light to make is really creamy with bugger all fat!) cheat on the gravy and make packet stuff, so its got no fat and a very lean cut of meat :D and like Dolly said, go crazy on the veg :D
Life is too important to be taken seriously!

I agree with the girls, eat a normal meal, with all the trimmings (this is what I will do at christmas) but just smaller portions. The low fat mash sounds good, and heaping on the green vege with only a small portion of potato. There is always a way around these things. Compromise! One meal isn't going to regain the weight... you will be fine. :D

Before you add the butter, salt and milk to the mashed potatoes, spoon your serving out onto your plate.

Thanks for the tips everyone, I had never thought of using Philly light in mash potato's MissE, will try that later . :)

I have decided on a very lean roast lamb cooked in the Webber then cube some veggies including potato, spray with some oil and bake in the oven. I will make a light packet gravy and still make a salad for me & DH.

Hopefully the scales will show a loss in the morn, GO TEAM INDIGO :D
