Kidzworld Kitchen: Rainy Days of Spring

May 01, 2014

Summer is definitely on its way and it’s bringing all the things we love: school-free days, sunshine, barbecues and lounging by the pool. But before summer can arrive in all its glory, most of us are facing a few weeks of rainy spring weather. Sure it’s great for the plants and flowers, but not so good for our motivation to get out of the house and get things done.

Feels like rainy days are meant for serious bonding sessions with the couch, a good book and your comfiest sweat pants. What would make these stay-in days go from fantastic to absolute perfection is some good old fashioned comfort food! The type of delicious, familiar food that warms you up and make you say mmmmm out loud.

Baked Macaroni & Cheese

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 pinch paprika

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Cook macaroni according to the package directions. Drain.
  3. In a saucepan, melt butter or margarine over medium heat. Stir in enough flour (Hint! Melted butter and flour mixed together is called a roux [roo] and can also be used to thicken gravies and sauces)
  4. Add milk to roux slowly, stirring constantly. Stir in cheeses, and cook over low heat until cheese is melted and the sauce is a little thick. Put macaroni in large casserole dish, and pour sauce over macaroni. Stir well.
  5. Melt butter or margarine in a skillet over medium heat. Add breadcrumbs and brown. Spread over the macaroni and cheese to cover. Sprinkle with a little paprika.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes.
  7. Serve and enjoy!

Umm...If she is the kind of girl that likes to talk a lot and tells everybody what is going on then the whole school will know when she finds out you like her.  I say who cares if the whole school knows you like her.  I like it if a boy tells me he likes me and ask me out.  I don't like boys trying to be sneaky coz they stink at it and end up looking stupid.  If you want to be sneaky about it you can ask her if she can help you with your homework or ask her if she wants to hang with you and your friends at the mall or you can look at her and smile and see if she smiles back at you.

well, as a girl i know that i like it when boys are up front with there feelings. girls like to know that they can trust you to tell them the truth no matter who's watching you.  that may show that you really do like her. if you need to do it privately, then mabey if you do any after school activities and she does then ask her then. jojo(:
