I am very nervous about today though. Have to go out for lunhc with work today and am also meeting friends for dinner and drinks tonight. Don't know how I am going to stick within the 49 weeklies today and it's only day 1 of my week.
Where we're going for lunch is usually carvery - Beef or Chicken with Mash and Veg. Have no idea how to point this as I don't know what has been added to the mash etc.
I am going to a restaurant called café bliss tonight off George's street in Dublin. It's €10 for main course and its BYOB
Great value money wise but again I don't know what my best option food wise would be
Has anyone else been here before?? Also, how many points are in a bottle of ww wine?
Had a look at the menu on menu pages and I would say your best choices for main course are:
Cajun Chicken Wrap
Piri Piri (which I am guessing is spicy chicken)
WW Wine is 12PP per bottle (You can get it in JC's in Swords) but if you are planning on getting merry, I don't think that would help as it is only 8% per bottle (so double the strength of alcopops).
For the carvery, try to stick to meat without fat or breadcrumbs or anything deep fat fried. Go with mash potatoe (leave the roast ones - 4PP per roastie) and what I would do is try and guestimate how many grams of it are on your plate and then add a few PP for whatever is added. Don't forget to PP the stuffing and gravy too. I would say (from eating where you're going, just so the ladies don't think i'm talking through my ar*e lol) it is about 200g of mash (so 4PP) and then I would probably add 2 or 3PP for whatever has been added to it.
Most importantly, enjoy!! Life is for living and we can't all be perfect all the time, and if you do have a little slip, draw a line under it and start again tomorrow (no chicken fillet roll ha ha).
