One Week ‘Til Wimbledon

The summer of sport is well underway! The cricket has been exciting, Euro 2016 has seen good & bad performances both on & off the pitch & Queens club tennis leads us nicely into Wimbledon.

Will last year’s semi finalist Andy Murray manage to recreate what he did in 2013 & lift the trophy, or will it be defending champion Novak Djokovic who makes it 3 wins in a row?

Whatever the result, make sure you have plenty of food for the 2 weeks. Of course, strawberries & cream will be devoured, Pimms will be on tap, but make sure, for those long games & edge of your seat championship points, you’ve got a well stocked buffet table for anyone who pops round. A slow cooker pulled pork recipe like this one from Love Pork is ideal for making life easy, not having to miss those all important service games & it’ll be ready whenever you need it! If you’re heading to a park to watch the tennis with your local community, pack a decent picnic which includes Appletons Butchers sausage rolls as standard.

If everything goes to plan & Murray is victorious, be sure to have sausages, bacon & black pudding in the fridge for the morning after the night before! Good luck Andy & we hope you all enjoy Wimbledon!
