Kidzworld Kitchen: Campfire Treats

Nothing feels like summer more than enjoying the great outdoors with a camping trip. There’s something awesome about leaving the phones and TV at home and spending time with friends and family around the campfire telling stories and enjoying good food. The tricky thing about camping food is finding things that taste great, require very little preparation and, most importantly, can be cooked over the grill or an open fire. Everyone brings the staples: wieners, marshmallows, steaks and burgers, but here are just a few ideas for special treats that are wrapped in foil (for breezy cleanup) and cooked right in your campfire. Treat everyone to fresh muffins in the morning, stuffed apples for dessert and banana boats for a late night treat to replace the been-there-done-that s’mores.  Enjoy your outdoor adventure!

Grilled Banana Boats

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 1/8 cup chocolate chips

I have to keep sites where I have any kind of interaction with people I haven't met face to face a secret, and it gets hard sometimes because I'm on quite a few roleplay sites which obviously involve chatting/interacting with people. I trust everybody on those sites though, but try telling my mom that.     My parents have gotten a lot better since then, but they're still strict about the chat sites and all. My mom is still very strict, but not nearly as much as then. I guess it's because I've gotten older. I'll be 13 in a few days. c: ALSO. If any of you saw my other post, pretend you didn't xD For some reason I thought I'd posted the original forum post. xDD I guess that's what happens when you haven't been on a site in a couple of years, you start forgetting things.

I know exactly how you feel.  I'm going through the same thing. The thing to know is none of it's your fault.  And you can visit your mom or your dad.  You can try to get your mind of it by hanging out with your friends at school.  I feel your pain.   And I feel bad that this kind of stuff happens in life.  But god will make everything better. :)
