EDITOR’S LETTER

Welcome to

October

PHOTOGRAPH: LEO ACKER. PRODUCTS AVAILABLE IN SELECTED STORES ONLY, WHILE STOCKS LAST. MINIMUM SPEND AND DELIVERY CHARGES MAY APPLY ONLINE

This month we’re celebrating all things snuggly, from homewares that make

you want to hibernate to meals that bring comfort and joy. I love this time of year – bring on the candles, the thick socks (and in my case PJs) for cosy evenings on the sofa! It’s even more enjoyable following a day out in the fresh air – turn to The Great Outdoors (p36) for ideas. To help make your weekends extra-easy, we’re championing slow-cooked roasts (p31) – this method makes any cut of meat more delicious and, as a bonus, frees up time for you to do other things. The frst time I slow-cooked lamb studded with lots of garlic was a revelation. You could slice it with a spoon and the garlic melted right into the meat. And don’t get me started on slow-cooked pork with crispy crackling, just like our cover recipe… Sit back, relax and enjoy this October.

Hannah Dove Asda Editor

THE RISE OF THE FRIES Gourmet chip van Come Fry With Me proved so popular at this year’s festivals and street markets, it’s now opening a restaurant in London’s Covent Garden in October. Founder Tiffany Plant thinks fries deserve more than salt and vinegar. She uses toppings such as trufe and Parmesan, pesto chicken and Marmite, or vanilla icing on cinnamon sweet potato fries. Try some of Tifany’s ideas for jazzing up your fries at home… l Fry them in duck fat instead of regular oil. l Top your chips with leftovers such as chilli con carne, curry, Bolognese, grated cheese or baked beans with cumin or coriander. l Bored of ketchup? Try blue cheese dip or Bearnaise sauce. l Sprinkle with dried herbs and spices – try fajita spice mix, Cajun spice, garlic and rosemary seasoning or smoked paprika.

Ribbon pasta with exotic mushrooms

OYSTER

This velvety variety has a tender texture and delicate favour. It works well with seafood, chicken and light spices.

Creamy garlic sauce and earthy mushrooms make an indulgent pasta dish Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan. Cook a handful of Extra Special Mixed Exotic Mushrooms for 5mins. Add crushed garlic and cook on low for 1min. Add a dollop of double cream, season with salt and pepper and simmer for 2mins. Toss with cooked pasta, such as tagliatelle, and serve with Parmesan – or mature Cheddar for a veggie version – and chopped parsley. Serves 2

ENOKI

With tiny caps on long, fne stems, these have a slight crunch and mild, fruity taste. Use in oriental soups and salads.

KING OYSTER

Related to the Oyster, this has little favour raw but the stems develop bite and a rich, savoury taste when sliced and sauteed.

PORTOBELLO

Big, fat, strong and earthy. Grill or roast to serve with red meat, or use in place of meat for a veggie variation on a recipe.

SHIITAKE

This frm, feshy variety adds a mild smokiness to Asian dishes – notably Japanese miso soup – and sauces and meat recipes.

Balsamic oyster mushrooms on bruschetta V

WHITE

Treat yourself to a taste of luxury with these rich, sweet-and-savoury bites

Mild-favoured with a closed cup – also available as smaller Baby Button Mushrooms. Try in soups and creamy sauces.

Cook a handful of Extra Special Oyster Mushrooms in a little oil, on a high heat, for 3mins. Stir in a good splash of balsamic vinegar and season. Simmer for a few minutes more until the balsamic reduces to a sticky glaze. Serve on toasted brioche slices. Serves 2

CHESTNUT

Like the White Mushroom, but larger, darker and nuttier in favour. Try pan-fried in garlic butter. 20

SPOTLIGHT ON Portobello & blue cheese salad V The strong favour and frm texture of Portobello mushrooms goes well with the blue cheese Make a marinade from red wine vinegar, clear honey and olive oil. Stir together with a few chopped thyme leaves. Slice Extra Special Portobello Mushrooms into strips and marinate for an hour. Remove from the marinade then dry fry over a high heat for 3mins on each side. When cooked, toss them through a pack of mixed salad leaves and crumble over some Smartprice French Blue Cheese. Drizzle on the pan juices as a dressing and sprinkle with chopped dryroast peanuts. Serves 2

Enoki, tofu & pak choi broth V This Asian soup is fresh, delicate and warming Mix half a vegetable stock cube with 400ml boiling water and a dash of soy sauce. Bring to a simmer and add cubed tofu, grated ginger, a squeeze of lime juice and Extra Special Enoki Mushrooms. Or try it with Extra Special Buna (brown) and Shiro (white) Shimeji Mushrooms. Simmer for 5mins, stir in a few pak choi leaves and serve. Serves 2

Sweet potato & courgette ‘fries’

OCTOBER 2015 | ASDA.COM/GROCERIES | 25


Big match night When the boys are having a games night in or watching the rugby, serve up a hearty selection for them to choose from – chunky sarnies, loaded potato skins and delicious noodles in a pot.

Steak ‘man’wich

BUY

You can’t beat a classic steak sarnie to go with the beers – and they’re so easy to put together

Let a couple of sirloin steaks come to room temperature, then season. Heat a little oil in a frying pan until sizzling. Cook the steaks for 2-3mins on each side for rare or 4-5mins for medium. Put on a board to rest, covered with foil. Add sliced mushrooms to the pan and fry for 3mins. Add some chopped onion and fry for 3mins, adding a little more oil if needed. Slice a large ciabatta down the middle and put rocket on the base. Slice the steak and put on top of the rocket, followed by the mushrooms and onions. Finish with sliced tomatoes and horseradish sauce. Slice and serve. Serves 4

Repeat along the bottom edge. 5 Glue the big bead in the centre, on the same side, as a handle. Paint the box and lid. Decorate with gems.

‘This looks so cool – the best thing is you can play with it, too!’ George

Aeroplane money box YOU NEED Scissors (ask an adult for help when using these) Double-sided sticky tape Empty round plastic bottle (about 330ml) Card in assorted colours TO MAKE 1 Cut a coin slot 3cm x 1cm, in the side of the bottle. 2 Make one side of the plane – draw an L-shape on card and cut out. Use as a guide

to make the opposite side. 3 Attach these to either side of the bottle with doublesided tape, with the slot at the top. Trim the card a little to avoid blocking the slot. 4 Draw 2 rectangles, each 2cm x 10cm, for engines. Cut out, roll into tubes and secure with tape. Attach to either side of the bottle, near the neck, making sure they rest on the table to hold the bottle steady.

Add 100g Chosen by you Wholefoods Popcorn to a pan. Cover with a lid and cook gently over a medium heat for 7mins (ask an adult to help) until the corn pops, shaking occasionally. Take care, as the lid will get hot. Continue to shake until the popping stops. Remove from the heat and leave to stand for 30 seconds. Stir through a little golden syrup or brown sugar and ground cinnamon. Serves 2

5 Draw 2 long triangles with rounded tips for wings. Cut out, fold down a tab at one end of each and attach to the sides, above the engines. 6 Using the bottle cap as a guide, draw a propeller with a hole in the centre. The cap will secure the propeller to the bottle, so the hole should be smaller than the cap. Cut out windows, plus tailplanes for each side of the tailfn, and stick on to fnish.

Making just one little change can help you on the way to better health TAKE A WALK

Just one brisk, 30-minute walk every day will help you maintain your ftness. Head into the great outdoors, or make part of your journey to work or the shops on foot. Why you should do it There’s no need to take exercise to extremes – it can put stress on your body and weaken your immune system. However, according to a report in the British Medical Journal*, moderate daily activity can help to reduce your risk of colds – or, if you do get ill, your symptoms may be less severe. Exercise gets your blood pumping and helps to strengthen your lungs, making you less prone to chest infections. And many people fnd it’s a great mood-booster, too.

Wash your hands Germs can live for up to 2 hours on any surface, so wash your hands regularly – and properly. Rub them together under warm water with plenty of soap for 15-20 seconds – sing Happy Birthday twice to time it! Try Asda Moisture & Cleanse Hand Wash, 67p (300ml; 22p/100ml). Why you should do it Soap and water are a simple but powerful weapon in the fght against infection. Hand-washing can reduce your chances of getting stomach bugs by 40% and colds and fu by 20%. Make sure you dry them well, too – damp hands are 1,000 times more likely to spread bacteria than dry ones.

Try a new brew

Have an early night

The longer winter nights mean you want to sleep more, so go to bed an hour earlier, and at weekends, turn of your alarm and let yourself wake up naturally. Why you should do it Getting the right amount of sleep is vital for wellbeing. According to nhs.uk, less than 7-9 hours’ kip a night long-term can cause problems, such as stress and raised blood pressure. Studies** have also shown a link between poor sleep and obesity, and it might afect your memory, skin and immune system, too. Catching up may help to reverse the damage and make it easier for you to maintain a healthy weight.

Swap tea and cofee for herb tea. Ginger may settle your stomach, peppermint has a calming efect and chamomile can help to relax you. Try Chosen by you Peppermint & Liquorice Tea, 74p (40g; £1.85/100g). Why you should do it A cup of unsweetened herb tea contains no cafeine, so you may sleep better. Plus, it’s around 2 calories – milky cofee with one sugar has 30. So switching one cuppa each day could save you 10,220 calories in a year!


HEALTH SNACK SMARTER

Snacking needn’t be a no-no – just choose your nibbles carefully. Try a handful of berries, nuts, seeds or unsalted popcorn, oatcakes with houmous, or wholemeal pittas with peanut butter. Why you should do it Cravings for junk food can kick in when your blood-sugar level is low. Snacking can help to keep it from falling, so line up some goodies to graze on ready for the ‘3pm slump’, to help curb the urge for sweet treats.

Floss your teeth

Flossing twice a day removes bacteria from the places your toothbrush can’t reach, helping to reduce gum-bleeding (a tell-tale sign of gum disease) by 40% more than just brushing. Try Oral B Pro Expert Premium Floss, was £3.49, now £2 (40m; 5p/m), and ask your dentist to show you the correct technique. Why you should do it Flossing is vital for gum and tooth health. Plus, scientists are researching the theory that bacteria enter the bloodstream through infected gums, or that oral health problems can trigger harmful infammation elsewhere in the body. This could mean that good dental hygiene helps to protect against heart disease and diabetes.

Opt for dark chocolate

Choose dark choc – with at least 70% cocoa – over milk. Why you should do it Dark chocolate is lower in sugar and fat than milk, plus it contains iron and antioxidants, too. Try Extra Special 70% Dark Chocolate, £1.50 (100g)

Go veggie for one day a week

There’s no need to bin bacon butties for ever – just keep one day in seven meat free. Why you should do it Research by Oxford University found that a vegetarian diet may reduce the risk of heart disease by up to 32%. But if you don’t feel able to give up meat full time, one day a week is a great start. Visit meatfreemondays.com for more details.

EAT LIKE YOU’RE IN THE MED

The Mediterranean diet, often hailed as the world’s healthiest, involves eating like people in Italy, Spain and Greece. It’s easy to follow – just have plenty of fruit, veg, wholegrains and nuts; eat no more than 70g of red meat a day and choose fsh or chicken as an alternative; cook with olive oil rather than butter or saturated fats; and add favour with herbs and spices, not salt. Plus – good news – you can also enjoy red wine in moderation. Why you should do it Eating this way long-term may reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke by up to 30%, and lower your risk of depression and some cancers. You could lose weight, too.

If you want help to improve your health, visit Change4Life for recipes, expert advice, tips and support. By making simple changes in your diet – for example, swapping full-sugar drinks for water, lower-fat milks, sugar-free, no-added-sugar or diet drinks instead – you can really make a diference. It’s simple to sign up – just go online and search Change4Life

LEARN SOMETHING NEW

Put the long, dark evenings to good use by signing up for classes or trying a new hobby. Whether it’s crafting, DIY, cooking or learning a new language, you’ll keep your mind active and meet new people. Why you should do it Giving your brain a regular workout can help to keep your memory sharp in older age, and some experts believe it could even ward of the symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Making like-minded new friends can also cause you to feel happier and more motivated.

Get Tickled Pink this October

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is the perfect time to celebrate the Tickled Pink story. Here’s to 19 years – and £44 million raised so far! We’re Tickled Pink

Fiona Lambert, Asda’s Tickled Pink Ambassador, says, ‘Asda’s Tickled Pink has been raising money for Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Campaign since 1996 and has reached over £40 million so far. I feel really proud at what has been achieved by Tickled Pink in 19 years – so I want to share some of our fabulous achievements here, and inspire you to continue supporting us.’ There are over 700,000 people living with or after a breast cancer diagnosis in the UK. The money raised by Tickled Pink ensures Breast Cancer Care specialist nurses, local services and vital emotional support networks help thousands of people facing breast cancer every day. It also enables Breast Cancer Now (formerly Breast Cancer Campaign) to fund research into stopping this disease.

Vital research

The Tickled Pink story so far… 1996

2012

● Asda launches Tickled

● The UK’s frst breast

Pink, in partnership with Breast Cancer Care, funding a network of local support groups, which provide a lifeline of care for people facing breast cancer.

Tissue Bank is opened, founded by Breast Cancer Campaign, with support from Tickled Pink. The tissue it collects, donated by breast cancer patients, is essential for research into treatments.

2005 ● Breast Cancer Campaign

joins the Tickled Pink partnership.

2013 ● Fundraising reaches the £30 million mark, and

72 | TICKLED-PINK.ORG.UK | OCTOBER 2015

Tickled Pink is presented with an Outstanding Achievement Award by Breast Cancer Care patron Geri Halliwell. ● Colleagues from Asda are invited by Samantha Cameron to join scientists, celebrities and politicians at Number 10 Downing Street to launch Breast Cancer Campaign’s Gap Analysis 2013, to help fnd the cures for breast cancer.

● Tickled Pink funding allows Breast Cancer Campaign to launch Scientifc Fellowship grants: an award of up to £500,000 for individual scientists to carry out independent research. Dr Rob Clarke was the frst Breast Cancer Campaign researcher to receive a Fellowship grant for his studies on breast cancer stem cells. ‘These stem cells hold the key to vital new approaches and treatments to help us beat breast cancer once and for all,’ he explains.


CHARITY NEWS 2014 Last year, thanks to our customers and colleagues, Tickled Pink achieved a major fundraising milestone...

£40 million! BREAST CANCER CAMPAIGN In 2014, Tickled Pink donated £2.5 million to Breast Cancer Campaign (which relaunched as Breast Cancer Now in 2015, following Breast Cancer Campaign’s merger with Breakthrough Breast Cancer). Here are some of the projects the money funded... ● Research into fnding those who beneft most from drugs developed to reduce the risk of developing breast cancer. ● The Tissue Bank, which has so far collected 37,000 samples, vital for research, from 9,000 patients. ● Studies to help improve and personalise treatments. ● Plus, colleagues were instrumental in supporting the Spread the Word campaign, which raised awareness of secondary breast cancer. To fnd out more, go to breastcancernow.org

‘The amazing research being carried out gives me hope that future generations won’t have to live in fear of a breast cancer diagnosis’ NIC NAISH, 48, FROM WORTHING

The Parkinson Building, part of Leeds University and home to one of the Tissue Bank sites, was one of 18 landmarks across the country to turn pink last year, to highlight research into breast cancer

BREAST CANCER CARE Last year, Tickled Pink donated £2.5 million to Breast Cancer Care. Here’s how some of it was spent… ● Moving Forward courses, which are supported by Tickled Pink, help people to adjust to life after breast cancer treatment. The money donated means that these courses can be run for free and in more locations – a total of 90 courses are now available across the UK, including 12 new locations added in 2014. ● Breast Cancer Care’s HeadStrong service, which gives advice to patients losing their hair during chemotherapy, was able to expand its services. There are now 36 locations UK-wide, providing support and practical tips. ● Funds from Tickled Pink were used to increase training in breast health in local communities. As a result, attendance at our workshops grew by over 200%, helping more people than ever spot the signs of breast cancer and ultimately helping to save lives.

EXPERT ABOUT OUR Donna Francis is an awardwinning beauty editor. So what’s her own top beauty tip? ‘I don’t always like to wear mascara, so A-list make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury told me to line my upper waterline – the inner lashline – with dark kohl and to work the eyeliner into the roots of my eyelashes. It makes lashes look longer and more defned.’

‘BB is my best bet’

Garnier BB Cream Anti-Ageing, was £10, now £6.70

HOLLY WILLOUGHBY ‘I don’t like the feel of make-up on my skin,’ says This Morning presenter Holly. ‘So BB is my best bet – it just feels like moisturiser. I put a little bit on the back of my hand, press four dots of it onto my face, then blend in. My mum has never worn foundation. Ever. But I gave her the BB and she now uses it.’ OUR EXPERT SAYS Unlike foundation, BB cream – the BB stands for beauty or blemish balm – leaves just a sheer, silky layer of tint on the skin. It hides minor blemishes, evens out skin tone and acts as a moisturiser, primer and brightener. Some also have SPF sunblock. Its creamy texture means it’s easy to apply too much, so start with a tiny amount and pat it on gently with clean fngertips. Wait a few seconds for it to absorb into the skin and add more if you need to, building the colour gradually.

NSPA Hot Cloth Polish, £7 or 2 for £8 Collection Extreme Coloured Lengthening Mascara in Blue, £1.98

‘Experiment with coloured mascaras’ RITA ORA ‘I’ve been trying out coloured mascaras,’ says X Factor judge Rita Ora. ‘I love to experiment with new make-up trends.’ OUR EXPERT SAYS Coloured mascaras were all over the autumn/winter fashion catwalks and are a really subtle, foolproof way of introducing new shades

into your make-up bag. This means they’re perfect if you’re new to make-up or unsure about adding brighter colours to your look. Purple mascara looks gorgeous with blue or green eyes. And blue mascara fatters everyone as it emphasises the whites of your eyes – if you’re not a morning person, it’s great for faking a wide-awake look, too!

‘Don’t wash your face in the morning!’

KATE GARRAWAY ‘It’s so important to have a good beauty regime and to take your make-up of every evening,’ says the Good Morning Britain host. ‘Salma Hayek told me to wash my face well at night but never in the morning as your skin produces natural oils when you sleep.’ OUR EXPERT SAYS Giving your morning face-wash a miss can be a time-saver – and it shouldn’t cause any problems with your complexion, either. In fact, it lets your skin lock in the benefcial natural oils produced during the night. But it’s important that you cleanse thoroughly before you go to bed, to whisk away any make-up and grime from the day, so your skin is ready to do all of its ‘repair work’ while you’re fast asleep.

BEAUTY

‘My biggest beauty secret is contouring’ KELLY BROOK The actress, model and presenter has shared pictures online of herself having contouring make-up applied. ‘It gives you a completely diferent bone structure,’ she says. OUR EXPERT SAYS Contouring is the new buzzword in make-up. It’s a simple trick-of-the-eye technique that gives your face its angles back. To emphasise

your cheekbones, take a stick foundation two shades darker than your usual base, and draw a line along the hollow part of your cheeks (where you feel the dip underneath the bones). Then, with a damp make-up sponge, tap over the contour colour so it blends seamlessly with your base. Finish with a highlighter stick, drawn along the tops of your cheekbones and blended in. Set with your usual powder.

‘No time for full make-up? Go for a red lip’ FEARNE COTTON ‘If I’m in a rush, I won’t do a full face of make-up in a shoddy way, I’ll just concentrate on one feature,’ explains the presenter and celeb mum, who likes to let her lipstick make a statement. ‘When you have less time, I think you have to really know what suits you. I’ll go, “Right I’m just going to do a red lip!” and then, in the car, put on red lipstick and sunglasses.’ OUR EXPERT SAYS A solo slick of bright lipstick can do wonders for your face, but if you don’t feel brave enough to wear a bold shade, especially in the daytime, apply just a little and blend it with your fngertips for a more subtle look. It still instantly brightens up your face but isn’t too glamorous for a trip to the soft play or supermarket.

Andrew Barton S.O.S. Hair Repair Treatment Mask, £2.50*

‘Use a hair mask twice a week – it’s got to be done!’ CHERYL FERNANDEZVERSINI ‘When I was in California celebrating my birthday, I didn’t look after my hair at all,’ admits the singer and X Factor judge. ‘I’d been in the sun and partying, so when I got home, my hair looked frazzled. I thought, “Never again!”. I apply masks twice a week. It’s got to be done.’ OUR EXPERT SAYS Try to sleep in a hair mask overnight for maximum beneft. Rinse unwashed hair with warm water, then shampoo, towel dry – gently, so you don’t cause further damage – and apply the mask. Cover with a shower cap while you sleep. Rinse the next morning and fnish with cool water to close the cuticles on the hair shaft for a smooth, shiny look.

‘I opt for moisturisers that won’t block my pores’

AMANDA HOLDEN ‘I use noncomedogenic moisturisers,’ says the Britain’s Got Talent judge. OUR EXPERT SAYS No matter what your skin type, keep it hydrated by using a moisturiser morning and night. This applies even if you have oily or spot-prone skin, as excess oil can be a result of dehydration. Use an oil-free, noncomedogenic formula on your skin after cleansing and toning.

The BIG debate

planning Christmas?

‘ Is it too early to be YES

says Ingrid Marsh ‘For me, Christmas is all about family, friends, feasting… and fun. It’s certainly not about planning it ages in advance. ‘If I wanted to, I could run Christmas like a military operation. But I believe in living for the moment, not stressing about something that’s months away. ‘It’s not that I don’t plan things – anything but. I run my own business and I’m a hands-on single mum. But at this time of year, I’m directing my eforts into helping my son get of to a good start at school, not worrying about something that’s happening at the end of term. ‘I don’t really think about Christmas until December, and the frst thing on my mind is the food. That’s the main point of the celebrations for me, so I put a lot into planning menus. We leave it late to get the tree, but really go to town decorating it – it’s all part

of the creativity and fun. ‘I leave present buying until Christmas Eve. And guess what? It works. I head to one big store, and don’t leave until it’s done! Plus, the sales are on, so you can get great bargains. Then I go to town on wrapping each gift to make it special. ‘My Christmas is arranged with the minimum of fuss and the maximum of fun – and it’s never gone wrong yet. It’s too early to think about it now, so I won’t let it bother me for weeks to come.’

‘I leave present buying until Christmas Eve’

98 | OCTOBER 2015

NO

says Kitty Wood ‘I’m already well into planning Christmas at this time of year. I like to pick up a few presents in the summer sales – or even earlier. Usually I’m done by November, so then I can concentrate on decorating our house and joining in the celebrations. If I didn’t do this, it would be too stressful and I wouldn’t enjoy it at all. ‘I’ve got a big family, plus three soon-to-be stepchildren, and I like to make sure I get them things

they’ll really love. So from summer onwards, if I see something suitable for someone, I’ll buy it. I also have a spreadsheet to record everything against my budget, crossing each item and person of when I’m done. I wrap everything as I go along, too. ‘Planning it this way makes it work fnancially, as well. My partner and I get paid weekly, so we have to spread out our spending on presents and food. ‘In the months leading up to Christmas, I’ll add an extra bottle of wine to my trolley when I’m out shopping, or even a Christmas pudding, rather than letting it all build up to one massive shop. I like to buy new decorations every year, and doing the rest of my shopping early gives me a bit of time and money left at the end. ‘The point of this forward planning means that I can relax and enjoy Christmas, rather than worrying. I know everything’s bought and wrapped, so I can go to parties, and visit friends and Santa’s grotto – just the fun stuf, without any stress. ‘Christmas can be pretty exhausting but I love it, and doing it this way means we can all have the best time.’
