Kidzworld Kitchen: Multicultural Dinners

Jan 23, 2013

There is a whole world of delicious foods and flavours just waiting to be tasted and explored!

If you are lucky enough to have had the privilege of traveling or perhaps have an ethnic background or a relative or friend from another part of the globe you have probably experienced multicultural cuisine. While not all of these different tastes will appeal to you it’s always important to give it a try. You never know when you will discover something you love. Being open minded with food you can be sure that you never miss out on something amazing. Because hey! Somewhere out there is someone who’s never had pizza or burgers...and they don’t know what they’re missing either!

Here are just a couple of simple recipes you can try at home for chow mein and chicken curry. It just might kick start an interest in international cooking and eating!

I'm an older sister to a 13 year old brother. Neither of us really agree on much, either. I prefer this, he prefers that. I prefer that, he prefers this. It's natural regarding age differences. Even just a years worth can hold plenty. It's best to meet in the middle with things. Like, my brother and I for instance don't really agree on anything. But, it's good to meet somewhere with things to do together whether its agreeing on a movie to watch or playing a video-game together. Even drawing or helping each other out with something. Just keep in mind, when it comes to this, you won't always want to do what they want.

I understand this situation. Personally, you can tell your sister if you're completely sure on what happen. But, make sure she stays quiet about it until you both come to an agreement on when you should confront your parents about what you saw.

Here's something to think about @IlikeGUYS20, I can say this about myself, and I'm sure, from this post, you'd agree. I'd love to have a girlfriend, and I'd also love to have a boyfriend. I'd be open to date any gender that my romantic partner would claim. We should just see what makes us happy before we label ourselves. Thanks! :)Have a wonderful day!:rainbow ❤

You should grow comfortable with yourself before you come out. If you're not certain if you are indeed bi, then you shouldn't slap that label on yourself yet. Take some time to really think about how you feel, but don't worry too much about it. Your sexuality isn't everything. You have plenty of time to discover yourself as person. Don't rush it.
