Kidzworld Kitchen: Father’s Day Delights

Jun 12, 2013

We don’t know about your dads, but ours love anything barbecued, bacon-flavored or hot out of the oven! So if yours shares the same favorites here are a few food ideas that will make his Father’s Day extra tasty! Try prepping some delicious cheese-stuffed burgers for him to expertly grill and slather with homemade BBQ sauce. Don’t forget to compliment his grilling techniques – he’ll love that! Then finish up the meal with some sweet and salty bacon chocolate chip cookies. It may sound like a crazy combination, but trust me that they are heavenly and dad won’t be able to get enough.

So cheers to dads everywhere for all that they do for us. Hopefully you make yours feel extra appreciated on June 17.

Inside-Out Cheeseburgers

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of extra lean ground beef
  • 1/2 med minced onion
  • ¼ cup of BBQ sauce (see recipe below)
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp of seasoning salt
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup cornmeal
  • 8-10 slices of your favorite cheese (cheddar or blue cheese work great)

Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl combine raw ground beef with all the ingredients
  2. Mix thoroughly (Hint! The absolute best way to do this is with your hands so either scrub up or pick up some food safe latex gloves)
  3. Divide meat mixture into equal portions and form into balls
  4. Press a piece of cheese into the center of the ball and then flatten to form a patty (Hint! Be sure to press them well or your burgers might break apart)
  5. Lay finished patties onto wax paper and hand off to dad for grilling!

Hi there! My most important advice would be to be yourself! live your life! do the things you want to do. If you've moved past what happened with your feelings for one another, just go and enjoy your time. If things are weird, it'll be because of her, not you. Stay positive and calm and I'm sure you'll have fun!   Hope you have a good time!

Wow! This sounds so frustrating! Maybe talk to your mom about what's going on. Ask her why she's doing it. She might just be worried about your safety online. More and more there are unsafe people talking to kids on the internet. I'm sure your mom just has your best interest at heart. See if you two can agree on how to keep you safe online!   Good luck!

One thing that I have noticed is that a lot of people seem to think they should have a boyfriend or a girlfriend as soon as possible, but they don't need to until its the right time just for them. You don't have to be forced to fall in love with someone if you don't want to. Let love come in its own time. And to keep away from any problems with her if she may become mean, try just forgetting about what happened and treat her like a normal person you know, and try to avoid any arguments. If she becomes mean, maybe just walk away for a bit. And if she is still being mean, maybe confront her asking what you have ever done to make her this way towards you. If you have done nothing, then she will have no reason to be mad at you so its not your problem she is being mean so you don't have to be stressed about it. I hope this helps! :)
