Kidzworld Kitchen: Memorial Day BBQ

May 21, 2013

If you’re planning to spend some time with family or friends over this Memorial Day long weekend use these recipes to grill some tasty backyard BBQ eats!

A good sloppy chili cheese dog is just about as delish as it gets. But when you barbecue the dogs on the grill and cover it with your own homemade chili it’s gonna be the best you’ve ever tasted! With some homemade dill potato salad on the side you’ve got a backyard picnic that will make this long weekend super memorable!

BBQ Chili Cheese Dogs

Ingredients:

  • 1/2lb chopped bacon
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 lbs lean ground beef
  • 4 chopped garlic cloves
  • 16oz can of tomato sauce
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • Hot Dogs
  • Chopped red onion (for garnish, optional)
  • Shredded cheddar or jack cheese

Instructions:

  1. Fry bacon over medium heat until it begins to get crispy
  2. Add the chopped onions and garlic and fry over high heat until they begin to brown
  3. Add raw ground beef and stir well until beef is browned (Hint! Always be careful cooking ground beef and ensure it is all browned)
  4. Add tomato sauce, honey, beef broth and spices, stir well and bring to a simmer
  5. Gently simmer the chili for 30 minutes then remove from heat and cover

Potato Salad

Ingredients:

  • 4 medium - large russet potatoes
  • 2 c. mayo
  • 6 baby dill pickles chopped
  • 5 hardboiled eggs chopped
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp mustard powder
  • salt + pepper to taste
  • chopped parsley to garnish (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Peel and dice your potatoes into bite sized chunks
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Drop in potatoes and cook until tender (about 15-20 mins) (Hint! Use a fork to test the potatoes. If it slides in easily, they are done)
  3. In a large bowl, combine mayo, pickles, eggs, dijon, and mustard powder
  4. Add potatoes while they are slightly warm (Hint! Adding the potatoes warm allows them to absorb more flavor)
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste
  6. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours and serve!

Remember, be creative, have fun and above all, safety first! As always talk to the adult in charge before you get your chef on and never use an outdoor grill or BBQ without an adult present. Have a happy and safe long weekend!

I'm not sure whether you have actual depression or not (Ask your doctor if you feel you do, they'll be able to help. ^^), but I'm really sorry you feel depressed. I've been there too, and it really does feel like no one cares.   I know you said it's awkward, but try talking to your dad about it. You said he's the only one who seems to listen, so I'm sure he will listen and try to understand. If you start feeling really depressed every day, try doing things to make you feel happier. I don't know what you like to do, but you should do things like relaxing, reading, talking to people and spending more time outside. Smiling more often can help relieve stress and make you happier as well. c: Try meeting new people too. It seems as though your current friends are bringing you down, so you can try to talk to them if you like or find more friends who'll listen and care about you (however, try to keep your old friends as well. They are your friends after all, and it's hard being lonely). You've got friends on here too. But please don't think about doing anything harmful to yourself. You might not be thinking like that now, but being depressed can lead people to this and it's really not the answer.  Good luck! ^u^

I know what its like to feel depressed. And its hard to get out of it. Try thinking of good things, and if you are feeling lonely and have no friends around then you can talk to me if you want :3 When you start feeling depressed, try doing things you like, going out to a park or somewhere to be alone and just relax. Maybe go on walks once in a while. And even if people don't seem to care about you, I do :) So if you start feeling worse you can chat with me. Try not to think of dangerous things like suicide or cutting yourself or even running away though because it may sometimes seem like it could be the answer but it really isn't it'll make your life worse and more messed up. I hope you feel better soon! :D
