Kidzworld Kitchen: Fourth of July

Jul 01, 2016

It’s almost the Fourth of July! The official kickoff to summer and the Nation’s birthday, so let’s celebrate in a big tasty way!

Most likely you have a backyard barbecue planned and nothing goes better with anything off the grill than some good old potato salad. It’s easy, fast and a major crowd pleaser. The patriotic and creative cooks out there will enjoy cleverly arranging colorful fresh fruits to look like the flag. Nutritious and looks great.  Finally, the centerpiece of American cuisine, the apple pie…cookies, that it!  That’s right, all the same delicious apple, cinnamon goodness only in a personal-sized cookie. Serve with ice cream or all on its own.  Happy Birthday America!

So yesterday, my dad checked my search history. Harmless, right? Well... you haven't seen it. Because they gave me a LONG lecture yesterday about what I read. I feel like they don't trust me on the internet anymore. But I also understand. Because you know what the history was? Phan  ѕмυт. LOTS of phan ѕмυт. How do I gain their trust? My mom won't let me use headphones and threatened to not let me go to VidCon. I'm not just angry and betrayed at my dad for snooping in my phone, but also embarrassed and ashamed. I'm only 10, for God's sake! They should be worried about my access to the internet. How do I gain their trust again?!

Funny, open-minded, a good secrets keeper, always by my side, serious when things get serious, energetic and I guess there would be more. But I don't need perfection in my friends, cause I'm not perfect either.
