We’ve been stuck in a food rut lately. Turning out the same 10 or so meals on rotation. I know why we do it – once we’ve found something everyone likes it’s too tempting to keep serving it up. It’s getting pretty dull though.
(Our standard family meals at this time of year are: soup & bread; macaroni cheese; sweetcorn fritters; pasta bake; veggie hot dogs; pizza; risotto; potato wedges & dips; tortilla chips & salsa & guacamole; fritatta omelette.)
So, to liven things up a bit, we’ve been trying a new recipe every week or so. This week it was Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall’s Blue Cheese, Red Onion and Walnut Focaccia from the Guardian (UK newspaper).
I loved it, it was great with a bit of salad & would make a really substantial meal with a bowl of soup.
The littl’uns cheerfully eat gorgonzola and walnut tortellini so I did think this would be a winner. Sadly being able to actually see the blue cheese (ew! mould!) was a step too far & they don’t want it again so it’s not going to make it into our regular menus. Never mind, there’s plenty of lunches when they’re at school that I can eat it. All the more for me. Yum.
