Luscious Slush Punch Recipe
2 1/2 cups white sugar
6 cups water
2 (3 ounce) packages strawberry flavored Jell-O® mix
1 (46 fluid ounce) can pineapple juice

2/3 cup lemon juice
1 quart orange juice
2 (2 liter) bottles lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage
1. Bring the sugar, water, and strawberry flavored gelatin to a boil in a large saucepan; boil for 3 minutes. Stir in the pineapple juice, lemon juice, and orange juice. Divide mixture into 2 separate containers and freeze.
2. Combine the contents of 1 container with 1 bottle of the lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage in a punch bowl; stir until slushy. Repeat with remaining portions as needed.

National Public Sleep Day

By, Princess Ariel

Info from this site.

Being a teenager isn’t easy. We have to battle school, chores, sports, and other activities we have. But our favorite time of our day is sleeping. Sleep is a precious thing for us teens, and we don’t like it being disturbed. But all that is about to change. On February 28th it is National Public Sleep Day, which means that we can sleep anywhere we want in public!!! You could sleep on a desk, on the floor, in the park, or even in a tree! So when February 28th comes around, help celebrate the one thing teens love the most….. SLEEP!!!!!

Sleep while you can!!

Dark Room

By, 9.11

Dark Room
A dark room
Nothing in it but trash
Sometimes life can be like that
And on the floor you lie there so flat

It’s hard to tell when someone is going to help you
And you end up ashamed
But it’s nothing new

You’re stuck in a small room
With nothing left to do
But sit there and wait
To wait for your doom

Abnormal: The Birthday-Part 1

By, 9.11

Officer James Carl: Investigation Report
Date: January 29th, 2015
Location: 2606 Pineapple St.

When I entered the house, I felt terrified. There was a boy standing in the middle of the torn up room. The family members who were still alive told me what happened.

Jayme (the boy’s mother): It was his 8th birthday. He was very excited because his dad was supposed to come home from the Army for his birthday party. The sad thing was, his dad had died the week before.

Haley (the boy’s older sister): We had kept it a secret because we were afraid it would ruin his birthday.

Jayme: It was the day of his birthday that he found out. He was wondering why everyone wasn’t excited. We finally told him.

Haley: But that was only the start…

This is how some of your teachers spend their Valentine’s Day. What do you do?


The First 48

By, EZ

The First 48 is a crime scene show starring homicide detectives. The show is based on a murder that takes place and the detectives need to track down the criminal. The show has about 12 seasons and 288 episodes. They have just started a new thing naming the episodes, “The First 48 Missing Persons” and the show is on A&E. It is so cool to see the things they do on this show in order to track the criminal. Whether they find a car and take fingerprints, find witnesses and interrogate them, or tracking down the address, the First 48 is continuous and must go on!!!

You should definitely check out this show!!

Nutella Loving!!!

By, Haeli J.

I cannot express how much I LOVE Nutella!!! (and just for the record, I loved Nutella before the internet made it cool) So anyways, National Nutella Day is coming up! It’s on February 5th. So to celebrate it, here are some fun facts:
— The amount of Nutella produced worldwide in one day is equivalent to nearly three times the weight of the Statue of Liberty.
— More than 70 million hazelnuts are used worldwide each day in the production of Nutella.
— The number of jars sold annually, if lined up, would wrap around the moon four times.
— The amount of Nutella produced in a day could provide every person in San Diego with one jar.

Here is an awesome website with a recipe for Nutella Fudge Brownies!!!

Get psyched for National Nutella Day!!!

I got all of this information from these websites:


Yum in a Mug


By, Sarah J.B.

Lately, I have been making and eating all of my meals in mugs. French toast, macaroni, eggs, cake- you name it! If you want quick and easy meals or snacks, check out these recipes!

2-Minute French Toast in a Cup Recipe – from here!

First you need bread. This is pan de mie, which is basically just french for sandwich bread. Your weber white will work fine, or whatever you have on hand. I prefer my french toast soft-ish but if you like a little crunch go for a baguette. It truly does not matter. An old croissant. A nutty multigrain. A pile of tortillas might even work, i’m not kidding. Anyway, you’ll need one or two pieces of bread per cup. I like to make 2 cups at once so I can split an egg, but you can totally make one big cup with more bread and a whole egg. Work with what you’ve got.

Get your cup or cups ready. Butter the inside, either rub a pat of butter around, or you can melt the buter in a mircowave and slosh it around. Up to you.

Place the bread in the cup of your choosing. I used two small cups this time because my pesky husband wanted in on the action, but one big cup totally works. About a slice or a slice and a half will do it. Smoosh it down a bit but don’t compact it so much cause you need the liquid to be able to work it’s way in.

Now in a separate cup or ramekin do the following:
-crack and egg into it
-add 3 tablespoons of milk
-sprinkle cinnamon
-if you like your french toast really sweet or vanilla-y, add a single drop of vanilla extract (I don’t do this, but it might make you love it even more)

Mix it all together with a fork.

Pour the mixture into your cup/cups. Smoosh it a little, and give it a minute to soak down into the bread.

Now stick your cup in the microwave. Start with one minute, then add ten seconds at a time until it’s cooked to your liking (no runny eggs). In my microwave that’s 1 minute, 20 seconds.

Mmm, eggy cinammon-y bread. Yes!
