Snacks for Wimbledon Tennis

On Sunday afternoon, my wife had a brilliant idea. She went shopping for snacks for us to enjoy while we all watched the Wimbledon Men’s tennis final. Here are the pics of the food we enjoyed.

One of the things nearly synonymous with Wimbledon is strawberries and cream. We elected for strawberries with whipped cream as my daughter loves whipped cream – which goes straight in her mouth.

To keep things healthy, my wife had some olives as well to snack on.

My wife bought Wensleydale cheese with cranberries and Blue Stilton. I personally like the Wensleydale cheese as there is the sweet taste of cranberries in there as well. The Blue Stilton is a little strong, but we eat it as it is said to have health benefits.

Look at that lovely cheese board. It certainly makes cutting the cheese a whole lot easier. The gin and tonic is to give the refreshments a British theme in honour of Wimbledon.

We did have a box of crackers for cheese to have with the lovely cheese.

It does taste really nice – cheese melt crackers with Wensleydale cheese slice.

And this was what we were watching yesterday.

It was a very good game, although poor Federer seems to be unable to win another Grand Slam tournament. But we did have great food.
