ASDA Vegetarian Mac ‘N’ Cheese Leeks

4 out of 5

Bought this, reduced, and spontaneously, when I already had far too much in my shopping basket. Never go to ASDA when you’re hungry and you’ve just been paid. This would be a decent main course on its own, but I thought I’d have it as a side dish with my lasagne & salad. In a… [Read More]

You know when you see something on a shelf and you… just don’t know what it is? Most people just keep on walking. Not I. I pick up the packet and shove it in the trolley. Ready Steady Cook! So I have no idea what złoty or łagodna means, but the picture looks fairly innocuous… [Read More]

Kingston Town Jerk Chicken with Rice & Peas

Two whole chicken thighs – that’s impressive for a ready meal! The rice is very saucey, but it’s not overly tomatoey. It actually stops the meal from being too dry. Kinda salty, but tastes great. A bit pricey but good quality.£3.80 RRP. Around the £3.20 mark would be better.

Lots of packaging. Fork provided, so no washing up. Strong kick of chili – really quite spicy actually! Moderate lemongrass flavour. Enjoyed that much more than expected.

Koka Chicken flavour Instant Noodles

This pot of one-serving instant noodles was so huge on the local B&M shelf that I had to give it a try. I could barely fit it in my food cupboard when I got home, which served as a good excuse to rip into it and eat it right away. The noodles look a little… [Read More]

ASDA Chicken Madras with Pilau Rice

4 out of 5

First of all, the packaging passes the quality test: easy peel film. No faffing around with adding water or anything either – just heat for 3 mins, stir, heat for 3 mins, eat. Fibre 6g (recommend 30g per day), so eat five of these and you’re golden, except you’d then be at around 175% of… [Read More]

Tesco Chicken and Asparagus Risotto

Published on January 12th, 2019

Nice, simple instructions – 4 minutes in the microwave. Two things stand out for me: there’s quite a strong flavour of parsley (not a bad thing), and there’s plenty of chicken. Not sure if this is one of your five a day, but it feels healthy, and is 11% asparagus, with peas and other goodness packed… [Read More]

Rustlers Flame Grilled Cheese Burger

Published on January 5th, 2019
4 out of 5

As usual, a nice, meaty burger with a creamy cheese offset by a tangy relish. Rustlers have a winning formula and they know it. 1m15s in the microwave and you’ve got a tasty snack – which is a bargain when bought on offer for £1. The relish is a little too tomato-y for me, and… [Read More]

ASDA Meal for 2 Chicken Korma & Tikka Masala

I currently live alone, so don’t often buy into these “Meal for 2” things… but when I found this on sale for £1.65 I had to give it a go. You get a generous portion of chicken korma and chicken tikka masala, as well as a large pilau rice, four onion bhajis and two naan… [Read More]

Speedfeast Chicken Burger

Soft bread, succulent burger with odd fake brown grill effect, and a generous sachet of mayonnaise. Was actually really pleasant – perhaps because I’m hungry! Can’t complain. Cheap and cheerful.
