    Well I'm off shopping to Asda tomorrow, I was wondering if anyone could recommend any favourite buys such as ready meals, store cupboard essentials etc. Tips for things specific to asda would be better rather than fruit/veg/the usual yoghurts etc.

    I cannot thank one of the girls on here who recommended chickpea dahl enough!

    Hasta the asda chick pea dahl is to die for and its completely free. It comes in a tin and is with all their own tinned things like tinned chicken curry, tinned beef curry etc. It's completely free on the green and I guess on the Extra Easy too and I have mine with boiled rice and a finely chopped salad of tomatos, red onion, cucumber and green pepper - totally divine.

    The cajun spice is nice to keep in, I use it on loads of stuff.

    The GFY Chicken Sizzler (chilled) ready meal is nice with a hex b of chips , 4 syns on red or ee.
    The Smartprice sweet & sour chicken with rice (chilled) is ok, 3 on green or ee but it's tiny.

    The wholemeal pittas are a hexb I think..... I can't get them here.

    The reduced fat/GFY sausages are 1 each, tasty enough.

    Smartprice frozen spag bol is 2.5 on green or ee. but I haven't tried it.

    Yes chickpea dahl is gorgeous! I have it quite a lot on top of slimming world chips and it is divine! Really give it a try, it's much better than it sounds, the chickpeas aren't dry like they sometimes can be.
    Thanks for the tips everyone :) I might have to get some of what has been mentioned, the chicken sizzler sounds nice.
    Any other last minute tips?

    I had it tonight with some rice and sweet potato wedges. It was really, really nice :D Definitely worth picking up a tin on the odd occasion I go to Asda!

    I picked up 3 tins just in case I liked it, well I should've picked up a whole case. It's delish with a jacket potato. I also bought the veg balti only to find that it's 9 syns a can, oops, won't be partaking of that!

    Lol I had a thread about chickpea dahl that got several newbies trying it - great to spread the chickpea dahl love it really is amazing when you want a quick easy meal! Also great on a baked potato yum!

    I like the smartprice ravioli its 1.5 syns on green and extra easy - the sauce is a bit watery though so I don't put all of it on or i would have soggy toast lol! Another cheap and quick meal - ravioli on toast with HEA cheese melted on top is so simple but amazing!
