QUARINTINE COOKING: PASTA WITH MEATBALLS
By Leo Zhou
Hello, and welcome back to another installment of “Quarantine Cooking” Today we are trying a different writing style. . I don’t know what the recipe is called so I’m just going to call it “Pasta With Meatballs”. I know right, super creative. And in case you wanted to know the recipe, well I got it right here. But if you didn’t, I’m going to make you read it anyways. (Just kidding if you don’t want to read it then you don’t have to)
Step 1: Add enough water to just cover the pasta.
Step 1A: Go back in time and measure out the pasta.
Step 1B: Put the pot on the stove and turn it to high heat.
Step 2: Wait for the water to boil.
Step 2A: Have an existential crisis
Step 3: Give up on the recipe because your grandma already started cooking rice
Step 3A: Regain your motivation the next day and repeat steps 1 & 2.
Step 4: Put the pasta and meatballs in.
Step 4A: Add a cup of water.
Step 4B: Once the water starts to boil again, add another cup of water and a bit of salt.
Step 4C: Put on a lid if you are in a hurry. (Please leave an opening unless you want a homemade hot spring in your kitchen.)
Step 5: Wait until the water starts to boil (again) and add the Bok Choy.
Step 5A: Use chopsticks to test the pasta for softness. If it is soft, the pasta is ready.
Step 6: Put the sauce you have selected in a bowl. (or just serve a little S&P)
Step 6A: Mix it around a bit
Step 6B: Burn the inside of your mouth off trying to eat it.
And there you have it, a simple recipe for when your family asks you to cook something.

Quarentine Quick Projects
By Anna Agnoli, 6th Grade, AP Giannini
Hi! Have you noticed that you are mostly laying around during Quarantine? Have you been bored on the weekends? Here are some awesome Quick projcts that will help you stay entertained in Quarantin.
1. DIY dollhouse!
Do you have toys? Boxes? Towels? You can make a DIY dollhouse! All you need are at least 2 boxes, tape, and some scissors (you can use folded paper for stairs). You can arrange the boxes anyway you want, ontop of each other, next to each other, and maybe even Diagonal. You could use the towels for carpets, wallpaper, art on the walls (if you decide to put them on top of eachother, the person who will live in the house has to be smaller than the box, width wise) .
2. House Mandala
All you need is a place to build it, items from your house (Pencils, erasers, markers…) and a center. First you start off like any Mandala, you make the center (Plate, Shell, ball…) then branch out! Most Mandalas are normally symmetrical but you can do it however you like! We made ours at the beach.
3. Make a Catapult!
You will need: 1 chopstick, 1 clothespin, tape (Any kind), and a spoon (Can be metal or plastic, just don’t bend the metal one) also the thing you are going to launch should be soft because it may backfire and hit you in the face. First you can attach the spoon to the clip, the disc side of the spoon should be facing the alligator mouth part, and tape them together. Then you get the chopstick and tape it to the bottom.
4. Clip People
These Clip People i made with my friend before Quarantine. All you need are a couple clips, (Depending on how many family members you want) and some tape (Washi tape, painters tape, anything) For the clothes. You should also have a marker handy if you want to draw their faces. You wrap the tape around the pins middle, you can make separate tapes for shirt and pants effect, and then draw the face, you could glue a small piece of paper to the top for a hat or for hair.
In a large pot, melt the butter over low heat. Once melted, add the marshmallows and stir constantly until they have all melted.
Add in 2 drops of green food dye see how green it is and add more if you need it.
Remove from the heat and stir in the cereal until it is completely coated with the melted marshmallow sauce.
Turn the mixture out into the pan and, using a spoon or spatula that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, press into an even layer. Let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes, then cut into squares and serve.
