  4. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes
  5. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt candy coating and shortening; stir until smooth.
  6. Place a peanut butter ball on a fork and dip into coating allowing the excess to drip off
  7. Place on waxed paper
  8.  Using the red icing make swiggly lines from the center out creating the blood shot effect

  3. Can be stored in refrigerator for up to 3 days
  4. Using a very small amount of hummous stick a slivered almond to the top of each baby carrot to look like a jagged fingernail
  5. Place ‘fingers’ around the bowl of dip or sticking out at different lengths to look like a hand
  6. Enjoy!

Pizza Mummies

Ingredients:

  • English muffins
  • Pizza sauce
  • Black olives

  5. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the muffin is toasty
  6. Enjoy!

 Sometimes, you don't always know, if your'e not being kind to each other she's probably not your friend, it doesn't mean either of you are bad people, it just means you guys aren't the best of friends.  I hope you figure things out with your friend.

 Well, I would tell my dad that it's bothering me, that it's not good for him, and no one except for him is happy about him smoking. If he says he understands those points but isn't willing to quit, deal with it, don't tell your mother, and try to ignore it.  I hope you figure this out.

Im sorry for saying this but your Dads the adult. He knows what hes doing. Hopefully he will get through this phase fast.  Talk to him if you can and tell him how its upsetting you. But its not that serious unless he smokes for the long period of time and then theres the chance of getting cancer.
