Kidzworld Kitchen: Memorial Day BBQ

May 16, 2016

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!

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!

Your style is simply whatever you want to wear! Just wear whatever feels comfortable, or whatever you think looks good, and it is your style (: It doesn't matter if it's not entirely individual and unique, as long as it's what you feel happy wearing.

I love both my parents equally, but I prefer to spend time with my dad. My father works abroad so I see him a lot less than my mother, but it means that when I see him it feels more special :3

To be honest, this is probably just something you have to bear. I know that sometimes relatives can be irritating, but they only visit often because they care about you and want to see you (: Unless there is a real reason you don't want them to visit - for example, if they are unkind to you - then you should just endure it.  Or you could mention it to your parents and see if they can sort it out? This is something lots of kids have to deal with, me included, and it's just part of life! You are lucky to have grandparents who care about you so much c:
