Kidzworld Kitchen: Fall Food

Oct 06, 2014

If there is one positive thing about the summer coming to an end it is that the beautiful season of fall is beginning.

Fall means cozy sweaters, Thanksgiving, football, falling leaves and hearty, delicious fruits and vegetables! Squashes, apples, carrots, beets, artichokes, cranberries and much more are at their peak right now so take advantage by trying these recipe ideas. A healthy soup is a great lunch or dinner that will warm you up and get you your daily veggies servings. And what better way to enjoy the crisp weather than sipping on a hot cup of apple cider with a warm pumpkin cookie on the side!

Hot Apple Cider

Ingredients:

  • 8 cups unsweetened apple juice
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 sticks cinnamon
  • 8 whole cloves

Instructions:

  1. In a large deep saucepan add the juice, sugar and spices
  2. Mix thoroughly and bring to a simmer over medium heat

My dad and I are kind of estranged, we haven't spoken in a year. So my mom decides it would be a good idea to let him message me. He texted me while I was at school and now I have no idea what to do. All he said was 'Hi _, how is school?'. Do I reply? Do I not? If I do, what do I say? My mom and grandparents are no help, they just cracked jokes about it. KidzWorld has helped me with a hell lot of things, I better not be let down this time.

Just act like you were introducing him as one of your friends. Be yourself, wear stuff that’s comfortable. It’s okay to be nervous because everyone will be. Just hang out and have fun.

one day I was eating lunch with my friends and two boys, (I'm a girl). when one boy told his friend and some other people, everyone but me who he had a crush on. At the end of lunch someone told me and it was me, later on he confirmed it and his friend told us he was on the verge of tears because I found out. people were telling everyone he liked me. Earlier I told him I liked him as not to make him feel bad, he told his friend who told everyone. soon rumors were started my best friend and his had teamed up to make an unstoppable rumor making and spreading team.  on monday it was our all day field trip and he needed to tell me something so on the way back we sat together across from his friend. She asked him if he still liked me. I covered my eyes but could still see and he was saying no but nodding his head. I told him to just tell me and he said yes. By then the rumors were getting really bad so in order to stop them we started hanging out, and became best friends. its summer now and we text each other all the time but we are just friends the rumors have blown over but now another has become true. through all of this,  I really like him now. I don't know I f he still likes me but I know that I really want him too because I really like him now! What do I do? Please help me! I'm so lost! this is all like a nightmare! what if it starts again. What do I do!
