Easy summer eating with Asda

Summer foods from Asda

The nice people at Asda sent me a gift card recently to spend on some lovely goodies, so I thought I'd share a few of our favourite summer foods.

We like to eat outdoors as often as possible in the summer, and even though I don't own a barbecue (I'm possibly the only person in the UK who doesn't) there's something about eating outdoors that improves the enjoyment of any food, no matter how simple the meal.

We loved the very tasty, very juicy Big Eat Rump Steak burgers with a dollop of the tangy Asda Burger Relish on top. Eaten with my daughters' favourite homemade potato salad, they're bound to become a favourite.

I'm not sure what it is about the hotter weather that makes us all want to drink rosé wine, but my goodness this Blossom Hill White Zinfandel (currently reduced to £5) is gorgeous! 

We were spoilt for choice for pudding so went for a punnet of cherries (Tall Daughter's choice), Asda's own vanilla ice cream (The Teenager's) and my choice of Asda's milk chocolate Almond Moments which, in my opinion, are every bit as good as the more pricey Magnums. You heard it here first.

What are you eating this summer? Do you have a barbecue, and if so what time do you want us? 

Thanks for Asda for the gift card!
