Cooking with the Kids #1 - Honey Roasted Spare Ribs & Fried Rice


This is a FAB little recipe that our Big Lad Jack picked out. He's recently discovered ribs from our local Chinese take-away and the thought of making his own blew his mind! I was surprised to find it in a kids recipe book because I always imagined ribs to be a tricky thing to cook. I was very wrong!

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.
