fun food for kids

anonymous asked:

I feel so bad for the children who's parents spend all their food stamp money on junk food. I don't understand why you need to spend your last 150 dollars on snack cakes, chocolate, and soda when you have 4 small kids to feed..

Not your business. Heaven forbid people fucking enjoy the little things when life is fucking miserable when you’re poor. FUCK OFF! I’ve been on food stamps. We couldn’t take our kids to fun places or do anything memorable as a family. Our lives were basically check to check and on the edge of our seat to see if we could even have a Halloween or Christmas. Living poor is shit and I honestly considered killing myself so many times because I couldn’t do more to make my kids feel like kids and happy.  I’d rather pay for a poor kid to have a candy bar than some asshole who thinks poor people are the problem and not the tax evading rich people to get their second car or more.

Let me also remind you that healthy food has a high price and low shelf life. You can keep “junk” for months while a goddamn banana will go bad within three days of purchase. Not everyone can afford the gas or cab fare to drive to and from the store every fucking day. Try living on food stamps(equivalent) for a month and see if you can survive. Don’t judge til you know.

I must ask, does your NIles!Kana eat Felicia/Hinoka/Setsuna's cooking often?

Today is the beginning of (the usually forgotten) Hispanic Heritage Month. So I decided to start it off here with some of the foods the kids at school would make fun of: Arroz con gandules, Yucca, Platanos and a side of Malta. You too could embrace our beautiful culture if you only open your mind and welcome it with open arms. Today, try a Hispanic/Latinx recipe or try to visit and support a local Hispanic/Latinx restaurant. Buen Provecho!

anonymous asked:

Hiya! So, how do you think McCree, Hanzo and Junkrat would react to finding a lost child? Thanksie~ <3

This was really cute


· Would be so worried

· Asks the kid where their parents are

· If they are crying or scared, would start to make jokes (kid friendly) to make them laugh and smile

· Takes them by the hand and walks with them to the nearest authority figure to help them find their parents

· Plays with them until parent/parents comes for them

· Tips his hat to them and tells them to be safe

· Secretly is a bit sad that they left, for a moment there, it was like he had children


· Doesn’t really do anything at first, just observes

· After a while, when no one comes to help the kid, he walks up to them

· He asks the kid where their parents and they answer that they don’t know he tells him to follow him

· He takes the kid to a small garden or an open area, and sits them where he can see them while he asks an officer to find the parents, that he will stay with the kid til then.

· The kid is still crying/sad and not speaking

· Hanzo tells him that his parents are looking for him as well and will come quickly

· Opens the gourd and hands it to the kid and tells him to drink up (luckily he filled it with tea today)

· Tells the kid a story to make him feel better until he’s smiling, no longer sad

· When the parents come and find them, he is happy to have helped and smiles as the kid waves by at him


· Curious, he walks up to the kid and asks why they are sad/crying

· When he finds out that they are lost he begins to laugh and say that that ain’t a problem

· Picks them up and puts them on his shoulders and declares that it’s time for an adventure

· Takes the kid to an arcade to play games, to the park, to a food café

· He is having so much fun playing with the kid and is even more excited that they are having fun as well

· Secretly though, he’s also looking and running around places he thinks parents would be looking for a lost kid

· After a taking a break from their “adventure” the kid points out his parents and Junkrat sees how frantic and worried the parents look

· He asks the kid if he had fun today, and when he says yes he smiles and gives a toothy grin saying he had fun too

· He takes the kid to the parents and gives the kid a toy he “won” at the arcade to him and says hus goodbyes

seventeen at a family reunion
  • s.coups: the one uncle who's super popular with all the kids because he always brings toys to play with them
  • jeonghan: the hoe who always has a new boyfriend/girlfriend/non gender-specific significant other every time you see him
  • joshua: the ultra nice one who always offers to wash the dishes
  • jun: the bitchy aunt who always has new tea to spill
  • hoshi: the one at the table who gets drunk off of water
  • wonwoo: all he does is eat. just sit in the corner and eat. not even real food. probably just crisps or something.
  • woozi: highkey doesn't want to be there and roasts people under his breath, but never actually says anything
  • dk: moves back and forth between the kids' and adults' tables because the adults' table has better food but the kids' table is way more fun
  • mingyu: spends the entire evening playing with the family dog
  • minghao: the quiet cousin who never talks until that day when he delivers his iconic roast
  • seungkwan: the one who acts like he doesn't want to be there but secretly lives for these gatherings so he can judge everyone else
  • vernon: straight up brings his mixtape and gives it out to all his relatives
  • dino: all people talk to him about is how he's doing in school and the only thing he ever says is "i'm sorry i tried"
Guardians of the Galaxy at Disney

Peter Quill: Riding every ride in the park. He mapped out the day and has the line tracker app on his phone just to make sure he’s able to ride EVERYTHING before the park closes. His personal favorite is the Pirates of the Caribbean since he insists that he’s a swaggy space pirate. He persuades Gamora to buy pirate gear with him so they can be Jack Sparrow and Elizabeth Swan.

Gamora: Follows Peter but she’d rather hold the bags and loose stuff than go on anything with him. If she loses him, she WILL NOT HESITATE to yell his name until he finds his way back to her. She’s like an embarrassing mom. She did get on the Haunted Mansion ride but she said it was ‘unrealistic’ and made her motion sick.

Drax: Spends the whole time eating food and watching kids have fun. It all reminds him of his daughter so he eats to suppress his emotions. That and the candy is to die for. He ends up throwing up in a trash can and passing out, only to be found by Mickey Mouse and bottle fed water until he comes to.

- “This truly is a magical place!”

Rocket: He and baby Groot wander around with loose bolts to scare kids who are about to get on a ride.

- *Drops the bolt* “Ah, this just came off your seat. Oh well, safe travels!” *the ride zooms off and he smirks*

He spends the rest of the time judging all he stuffed toys for being unrealistically cute (and larger than him). He does let baby groot ride some of the small kiddie rides but since neither of them are tall enough for thrill seeking ones, they stick to the ground.

Yondu: He makes it his mission to meet EVERY character in the park. Of course he sees Mary Poppins, what is he, an amateur? After a while he ends up going to some of the gift shops and buying little Disney trinkets to put on the console. He even decides to make his next fin look like Mickey Mouse ears.

Ego: He finds a bench and falls asleep for the entire day. Because of the beard, some of the kids confuse him for one of snow whites dwarves. He’s in such a slumber he doesn’t even care to notice. He wakes up during the fireworks but still thinks the day was amazing. He doesn’t buy anything and he doesn’t even do anything but he still finds it one of the most enjoyable experiences of his life.

Mantis: She spends the whole time taking photos and riding the “Its a Small World” attraction over and over again. By the time they all get ready to go home, she sings the song repeatedly and it nearly gets her mouth duct taped. She ended up with some aesthetic photos and she even spent a lot of her time over at the Magic Kingdom to visit the Bugs Life attractions.

Fairy Tale Beginnings- Prince Niall AU

“The 50th birthday ball for the king will be a grand event, Everyone in the kingdom has been invited. Having the whole kingdom involved says a lot about the king, it shows he really does think of us as family …” the tv went into a dull silence, as I continue to do the dishes.

Our king was turning 50 so he wanted to throw an event the whole day, in the day would be a festival in his honor and at night is more of a party scene. At the moment the whole town was getting ready for the festival you could feel the excitement in the air.  I whipped my hands down with a rag and turned off the tv and continues to my room so I also can get ready. The royal family has been good to us; no war, no poverty so in short terms we have been the best we can be.

While I was walking up to my room, I was my little siblings getting ready as well, I smiled and went to help my mom with them.

Tipsy Sarchengsey

@lovelysandlonelys requested cute Sarchengsy fluff: I hope you like it!

“This is a bad idea,” Blue says, frowning in disapproval as Henry sets up the mason jars in the sand and pours in the lemonade.

“No, Blue, my dear,” Henry sings, “this is a brilliant idea.” He grabs a larger mason jar, the liquid inside a deep golden yellow that looks warm, illuminated by the firelight. He pours several fingers into each jar and then screws the lid back on and nestles the jar firmly in the sand.

Gansey is slumped in the sand, his back resting against a large driftwood log. He smiles cheerily as Henry stirs the drinks with a straw from the Chick-fil-A where they purchased the limited-time only! beverages.

“We don’t need alcohol to have fun,” Blue sulks. She’s grown up with a household of women who like strong drinks, watched as some of them handled their liquor and some did not. But Henry had bought the moonshine in Virginia from a small gas station off Sky Line Drive and he wanted to toast with it now, on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean, way down south on Saint Simon’s Island, Georgia.

“That’s quite true, Jane,” Gansey agrees easily. His bare feet dig down into the warm sand until he finds the cool, damp layer underneath. “You absolutely do not have to drink. You can watch Henry and I get ridiculous and blackmail us later.”

Henry snorts and passes a drink to Gansey. He holds the other sweaty jar, coated on the bottom by gritty sand, out to Blue, a question in his eyes. Blue scrunches her nose up and contemplates the worst case scenario but can’t picture anything more terrible than throwing up in the ocean; Gansey and Henry will make sure nothing bad happens.

“Okay, fine,” she huffs and takes the jar. Henry grins and picks up the remaining jar and they clink them together. Blue takes a sip. The tart, sweet taste of the lemonade mostly obscures the burn of the alcohol.

Gansey closes his eyes and groans. “Mint,” he says, his voice low and dreamy.

Blue mimics him and sighs, “Lemons.”

Henry makes a very exaggerated sexual noise before gasping, “Watermelon.”

They all burst into laughter at the same time.

“Damn! I wish I had recorded that,” Henry laments. “We could have sent it to Chick-Fil-A to use in a commercial for their new summer drink.”

“Oh yeah?” Blue asks. “And what would our pitch be? So good it’ll make you gay?”

Gansey laughs loudest of all. “Yes!”

“Or, so good it turns a potential love triangle into a polyamorous love fest?”

“That’s too many big words, Henry,” Blue chides before taking another sip. “Besides, that’s not even remotely catchy.”

Gansey hums thoughtfully. “I’m really trying to think of something but the mint!”

Henry laughs and kisses Gansey’s cheek, making a loud mwha! noise. Gansey blushes and it’s so cute that Blue gives him a noisy kiss too before leaning over him to kiss Henry.

“So good it spawns spontaneous saliva swapping!” Henry nods once, grinning at Blue and Gansey. “Good, right? Alliteration!

“No one thinks ‘saliva swapping’ is a sexy phrase, Henry,” Gansey says.

The drinks go down smooth and Henry refills their jars. Blue gets up and dances around their bonfire, humming “Go Your Own Way” until Henry gets the hint and asks RoboBee to play the song for them. Henry joins Blue’s dance, both of them shuffling around the fire, hands waving over their heads, the firelight gleaming on bare limbs, sparkling off rhinestones and metallic accents on Blue’s skirt. Gansey thinks he could just sit and watch them forever but of course they have other plans.

“Come on, old man,” Henry teases. He and Blue haul Gansey to his feet, pulling him into the dance, mason jars raised as they sway and sing along.

“YOU CAN GO YOUR OWN WAY!!!” Blue belts out and Henry and Gansey back her up, “Go Your Own Way!” She’s doing a furious dance and more than half of her drink ends up on her arm and in the sand.

After the song ends Gansey charges towards the surf, stripping off his teal and salmon stripped Polo, then his khaki shorts until he’s just a blur of tanned skin and navy blue boxers decorated with a print of tiny ravens (a present from Ronan). Henry follows after him, shedding his Madonna tank top and bright purple shorts; he’s wearing a pair of cheeky briefs they bought at Victoria’s Secret because Blue was so mad about the entire concept of the store. Blue sets down her jar and pulls off her shredded shirts and artfully embellished skirt and skips to the water, glad she wore the cute underclothes she had spent a solid month crocheting (much to Orla’s amusement).

The water is warm, like stepping into a bathtub. Blue squeals as a wave crashes against her shins, the water slapping up her legs and over her stomach. Gansey and Henry have made it out far enough that the water is up to their chests, meaning it’ll be at about neck height for Blue. She paddles out to them. They’re all laughing and shouting, splashing. The full moon shines down making the beach look silvery and the ocean a heaving black expanse frosted in white.

Blue shrieks when she steps on something that moves! Most likely a sand dollar, Henry assures her but Blue has already latched onto Gansey, her legs around his waist, refusing to let her feet touch the bottom because she could step on anything.

“We’ve been camping out here for days, Little Blue Peep, and we’ve survived,” Henry reminds her but Blue isn’t letting go. Holding onto Gansey is nice, especially when the water takes most of her weight, leaving her drifting gently against him.

“Look!” Gansey points towards the horizon and they turn and see a pod of dolphins swim by, sleek bodies cresting above the surface, tails slapping down. They chatter and call to one another. Gansey tries to mimic them and they respond with upbeat chittering.

“Ladies, gentlemen, others: Richard Campbell Gansey the Third,” Henry intones solemnly, “Dolphin Whisperer.”

“The real world applications for this skill are enviable,” Gansey replies before breaking out into what sounds like whale song.

“Oh! I speak whale, too!” Blue shouts. “Listen: hhheeeeellllllooooooooo hhhhhooooooowwwwww aaaaaarrrrrrreeeeee yyyyyyooooouuuuu?” Her voice goes deep and she drags out each word to the point of absurdity.

“Nope,” Henry shakes his head. “That’s straight up Entish. Listen to the real whale speak, children.” His imitation is hilarious, making Gansey and Blue crack up until they’re gasping.

Henry floats over and wraps his arms around Gansey and Blue. A change comes over them and they go quiet, drifting together, watching the play of moonlight on the waves, feeling the currents tug them back and forth, legs bumping, torsos sliding together. Blue tips her head back on Henry’s shoulder and he kisses her chin, making her giggle. Gansey kisses her throat, then Henry’s lips and it’s so nice and natural and good, trading kisses and touches, being cradled together in the ocean’s embrace.

At some point they decide to head back to shore. Blue clings to Gansey’s back until they make it to the fire. They’re drowsy, the buzz of the alcohol blurred by the mellow waves and the late hour. Tomorrow they’ll head farther south, through swamplands and into Florida (Henry doesn’t believe that Florida exists; Blue has promised to visit some distantly related cousins in Cassadaga; Gansey wants to see what he can find at various Spanish ruins). But that’s tomorrow, for tonight they curl up in their tent and talk until sleep finds them. Their dreams are soft and peaceful, their hearts open and full and wondering.

[Notes: As the author I feel compelled to tell you that night swimming in the ocean is not an idea I endorse! And drinking on a public beach is almost always illegal (underage drinking is 100% illegal so…). Swimming + alcohol = not a great idea. 

Saint Simon’s Island is a real place and it’s pretty chill. I think the kids would have fun exploring, eating good food, and camping on the beach. Cassadaga is also a real place and you should Google it. This fic was 90% inspired by the new Chick-Fil-A drink: watermelon mint lemonade. I may have purchased moonshine from a tiny gas station in Virginia where they did not bother to card…]

Derek Hale is absolutely a Pinterest dad and you can't convince me otherwise

This nerd? You bet your ass he is. It probably starts small (he’s a little bit discouraged after the whole crib fiasco) but then he finds easy crafts and games, later on he starts improving his cooking/baking game and his kid(s)’ food is often colourful and fun (and tasty! :D).

He probably takes up this photography project where parents take their babies and dress them up and create scenes so Derek involves all their pets in this project and creates this “my kids are woodland fairy royalties” pictures.

At one point maybe he starts some kind of dad blog and even gets mentioned on local news.

He probably takes up knitting when he’s in his 50s or something.
