Crescent Roll Pizza

Ingredients:

  • 1 (8 oz) package refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1(156ml) can of tomato paste
  • ½ can crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp of basil (dried or chopped fresh...but fresh is always best!)
  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Dash of pepper (optional)
  • An assortment of your favourite pizza toppings

Some good topping ideas would be ham, pepperoni, salami, thinly sliced mushrooms, pineapple, sliced olives, spinach, green peppers or more fresh basil. (Hint! If you’re hosting the party make sure there are topping choices for your guests with special diets)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C)
  2. In a medium sized bowl mix together tomato paste, crushed tomatoes, basil and pepper, set bowl aside
  3. Carefully unroll your crescent rolls onto a greased cookie sheet (Hint! Make smaller personal pizzas by cutting the dough into smaller squares)
  4. With clean fingers lightly press the lines of the crescents together until you can’t see them anymore and push the dough out to the edges of the pan
  5. Adding a spoonful at a time, spread your tomato mixture over your pizza crust (Hint! Leave the edge sauce-free so you have a place to grab your slice)
  6. Sprinkle half your grated mozzarella cheese over the tomato sauce
  7. Now it’s time to get creative and add all your favourite toppings
  8. Add the remaining cheese and pop that pie in the oven!
  9. Bake for 11 to 14 minutes, until crust is browned. Let the pizza cool for 5-10 minutes before cutting with a rolling pizza cutter.

Stick Em Up Smores

Ingredients:

  • 1 16oz bag of large marshmallows
  • 1 16oz bag of chocolate chips or chocolate melting wafers (Hint! Dark chocolate is a little bitter and less sweet. Milk chocolate is smooth and sweet. If you can, get a taste of both to decide which you like better)
  • 1 box crushed graham cracker crumbs
  • Lollipop sticks or Popsicle sticks

Special Equipment: Double boiler (Wha?! A double boiler is a two piece pot – the pot on the bottom is filled with boiling water and the second pot fits inside so the bottom is being warmed by the heat of the water. This is a technique for gentle melting)

Instructions:

  1. Insert a lollipop stick into the center of each large marshmallow, about ¾ of the way in.
  2. Pour the graham crumbs into a large shallow bowl and set aside
  3. Fill the bottom part of the double boiler with water and bring to boil over medium heat
  4. Place the chocolate in the top part of the double boiler and place over hot water
  5. Stir the chocolate with a stick or fork until it is smooth  and has no lumps
  6. Dip your marshmallow sticks into the melted chocolate and roll around until it is mostly covered. Roll chocolate marshmallow in the graham crumbs
  7. Stand up on a piece of wax paper to dry and put in the fridge for 1 hour

Remember, be creative, have fun and above all, safety first! Always talk to the adult in charge before you get your chef on! Happy cooking!

You doesnt have to come out to your family until your ready and until they is ready too.  If you blurt it out it could be the shock.  You says that you think your Mums side of the family will be more supportive.  Has you got an Aunty or Uncle what you could discuss this with?  An adult member of your family what is most likely supportive  could probably give the best advises on how to tell your family and when and how and prepares you for how they will react. Good luck mate and takes your time :angel

I think my mothers side of the family would be fine with it. It's my dad's side I'm most concerned about. My dad says some dreadfully terrible remarks about homosexual people. I think I'm not gunna tell him at all. Ever...  Either way. Thanks for the advice!

If you don't think that you'll be in a safe situation (for example, your parents try to kick you out, or hurt you physically or emotionally) than you should definitely wait to tell them. I think you'll know when the time is right. We can't tell you how they'll react, but I bet you can sort of figure it out from how they feel and act about these topics.  Remember, you are not obligated to tell anybody at all. It's personal. Wait until you're for sure ready to tell them. And when you do, tell them the way in which it's easiest. Get your point across, offer resources, reassurance, and give them time.

Hey guys, so I do kinda have a personal issue, but I need to tell my family about it. Truth is, I'm not even sure how they'll even react. Very few of my friends know, only the ones I trust anyway... I'm gay. Or at least bisexual. I kinda had a thing for girls, but that was a long time ago. I think I'm fully gay. I have a very supportive boyfriend, who loves me with all his heart. But that's not what it's about; it's actually coming out to my family, whom I know some of them are quite homophobic. Homophobia runs in my family. Sorta...  It makes my stomach turn when I think about it. I sometimes look into the mirror, look at myself and think if my conscience suddenly made me decide I was gay, or if I was born with it. Science tells us that we are born that way, due to lack of man chemicals entering a boys brain when in development. I feel like I've chosen it (even though I know deep inside I haven't) to be gay, probably because of my family almost forcing me into getting a girlfriend and such. I come from a Catholic family, to make things even worse. I'm like the only practising person in my family, but somehow I feel that they'll use my Faith against me if I come out.  So, should I just wait until I'm older? How do I know when the time is right? How will they even react? How should I even say it?  Please help!
