Mar 21, 2012

Spring break is almost here and everyone is busy finalizing their plans! Maybe you’re headed out on an exciting road trip or just planning to spend a fun week hanging out with friends?

Whatever your plans are it will be handy to have some delicious snacks when the munchies hit.  Yummy chocolate peanut buttery banana trail mix and pizza muffins make great travel snacks and fruit kabobs will be perfect to have while playing video games or having friends over.  Have a super fun holiday!!

Monkey Trail Mix

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of banana chips
  • ¾ cup peanuts

  • 1/3 cup peanut butter chips

Pizza Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp finely fresh chopped basil (or 1 tbsp dried basil)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Using a paper towel, rub vegetable oil all over the inside of your 6-hole muffin tin to keep your muffins from sticking (Hint! If you only have a 12-hole muffin tin add a small amount of water to the unused cups so you don’t damage your pan)
  3. In a large bowl mix the flour, egg, milk, oil, cheeses, tomatoes, pepperoni and herbs. (Hint! Save a bit of the cheese to sprinkle on the top)
  4. Divide the mixture evenly into muffin pan and top with remaining cheese
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown
  6. Cool on a wire rack and enjoy!

  • An assortment of fresh, washed fruits, such as bananas, strawberries, melon, grapes, mango and pineapple

No. I don't like those people at the mall. Sometimes, they ask my family and I (usually directed at my mom and sister, but sometimes at me, too. Even though I'm under 13. Not for long though.) if they want their hair done. And sometimes I'm so tempted to say, "No thank you. I did my hair today. Do you think I want it done?" But of course I never do. It's kinda disrespectful. So we just usually say No thank you. My mom, sister, and I now have a solution for that (my idea when I was maybe ages 9-11) Don't make eye contact with them and pretend that they aren't there.

 Loosing a parent is hard, your dad knows that and I'm sure that he misses your mom just as much as you do. Whether you explain to him how you are feeling or not, you should know that your Dad will always love you and admitting to him how you feel isn't going to change that. Although it is completely understandable how you feel, you need to let your dad move one eventually. It's not fair to him if he has to spend the rest of his life alone. Even though you might not see it, its a good thin that your dad is finally feeling comfortable enough to date. It doesn't mean that he is letting go of your mom or that he will forget about her, it means that he is moving on with his life. You lost your mother and he lost the love of his life. Dating other people will probably start off being just as hard for him as it is for you. My advice is that you talk to your dad. Let him know how you feel in the most gentle and understanding way that you can. Don't flat out say that you don't want him dating anyone, tell him that you still miss your mom and its hard to see him with other people. Let me know how it goes, good luck. :)
