Asian ribs with spicy cornbread

Ok, so maybe a strange combination for a Saturday lunchtime but I didn't really know what else to have each of them with. The ribs do taste good and are really simple but there is no sauce, well on these there wasn't any. I was hoping to mop up sticky juices with the cornbread but it turned into quite a dry meal. The cornbread probably wasn't as spicy as it was meant to be because I made it for the children to eat but it was tasty. These aren't on the top of my list of things to make again. I think I need some education on American food because whenever I see it made it looks so fantastic and I want to dive in, but I just can't seem to get it right.

Chicken Noodle Soup

We don't have a lot of soup in our house, mainly because the children seem to be really suspicious of liquid food, to the point where they won't even have tomato sauce (which to be honest I'm quite relieved about). So a comforting noodle soup was needed on a cold february lunchtime. It was delicious, but there is a lot involved in making it. All the vegetables need to be chopped quite carefully. We're used to a couple of pieces of potato or leek and then blitzing it all together. I think we'll add more ginger next time and chilli and keep it as an adult only meal, it definitely needed a bit more kick to it. So a make again, but with added spice.
