Kidzworld Kitchen: Winter Comfort Food

Jan 29, 2014

Wintery recipes to warm you up after a fun-filled day in the snow or soothe you through a pesky cold!

Banana bread and hot chocolate are a cozy combo that’s just the perfect thing to enjoy as an after school snack on a cold day, or take along in a thermos to enjoy at the rink or on a chilly walk.

Unfortunately, the blustery winter weather also brings with it cold and flu season and you might find yourself out of commission for a few days. But with a lot of rest and a pot of delicious, nutritious, homemade chicken soup you’ll be feeling better and back on the slopes in record time!

Thanks I actually might try that but she is really stubborn and will not take no for an answer I have tried just ignoring her but he will kick, hit, or punch me to get attention. my parents also don't like her bcuz she is bossy.

I would drop her for two main reasons. One - guilt by association. Meaning people might be afraid to be your friend because they think you might bully them too like she does.  Two - Losing her "only friend" as you say may make her realize she needs to make a change on how she treats people. In any case, do it nicely if you do! HTH!
