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!

I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.

You can write a note or a card to him. I'm sure he'll understand. And of course if needed see a doctor so that he'll know what to do to deal with those headaches.

You won't want to be, it's exhausting. Just be happy the way you are and don't care about what others think or say about you.
