Kidzworld Kitchen: End of School Year BBQ

Jun 20, 2013

The end of another school year is just around the corner and it’s time to kick off the summer fun with these recipes!

Summer is an exciting time filled with vacations, sports, sleeping in, and outdoor adventures so before everyone dashes off into different directions why not plan an end of summer BBQ for all your friends. Everybody loves hamburgers so this recipe for a cheese stuffed beef patty is a guaranteed hit! Put out an assortment of toppings and let your guests create the perfect burger! For dessert these chocolate and vanilla cupcake “hamburgers” are really cool and easy to make.

Inside-Out Cheeseburgers

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of extra lean ground beef
  • 1/2 med minced onion
  • ¼ cup of BBQ sauce (see recipe below)
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp of seasoning salt
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup cornmeal
  • 8-10 slices of your favorite cheese (cheddar or blue cheese work great)

Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl combine raw ground beef with all the ingredients
  2. Mix thoroughly (Hint! The absolute best way to do this is with your hands so either scrub up or pick up some food safe latex gloves)
  3. Divide meat mixture into equal portions and form into balls
  4. Press a piece of cheese into the center of the ball and then flatten to form a patty (Hint! Be sure to press them well or your burgers might break apart)
  5. Lay finished patties onto wax paper and hand off to dad for grilling!

Hamburger Cupcakes

Ingredients:

  • White cake mix
  • Chocolate cake mix
  • 2 cans of vanilla cake frosting
  • Red/green/yellow food colouring
  • Sesame seeds
  • Shredded coconut
  • Toothpicks
  • 6 large eggs
  • Vegetable oil (as per cake mix instructions)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Bake vanilla cupcakes according to instructions on the box, do not use cupcake liners (Hint! Without using liners you will have to well grease the cupcakes wells to prevent sticking
  3. Bake chocolate cupcakes according to instructions on the box, do not use cupcake liners
  4. When vanilla cupcakes are cool, cut them in half horizontal-wise with a serrated knife to create the “bun.”
  5. When chocolate cupcakes are cool, cut them in half horizontal-wise and save the cupcake top as the “meat.” You can discard the bottom
  6. Use ample amounts of food coloring to mix a batch of red icing (“ketchup”) and another batch of yellow icing (“mustard”)
  7. Pour some of the coconut in a bowl and pour a few drops of green food coloring in it. Stir with a fork until the coconut is light green in color like “lettuce
  8. Lightly dampen burger “lids” with water and sprinkle with sesame seeds so they stick a little
  9. To create the burger layers put red icing on the bottom bun, then add the “meat,” then add the yellow icing, then sprinkle the lettuce on top, then add the lid
  10. Finish by using a cocktail toothpick to keep it all together!

What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried

She isn't jealous she is just dissappointed that you chose to get lessons when she did to get better . She had to get better to catch up to you so you can enjoyher as your best friend. Then you went ahead and got lessons as if you needed them. She is just upset that you showed off a talent that she didn't have. And she tried to get better to impress you but you got better as well. Which kept her at the stage she will always be at my best friend sings way betyer than me but I try.

It may be hard but break it down to them we aren't friends but we can be associates. It may leave them a bit dissappointed but tell them we aren't in the same category to be as close as friends.
