Hugh FW’s focaccia

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).

Blue cheese, red onion and walnut focaccia

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.
