A Cheesy Year, the Process of Making Arrangements

June of 2021 was the end of a Covid crazy school year. Before class could conclude, everybody was back in school for in-person teaching. One day, the lunch was slated to be held during a different hour than usual. It moved lunch from my world history class to English 11.  A few days prior I had chatted with Ms. Barnes, my English teacher, about cheese. She prompted me to bring cheese to the class. So…

The Monthly (Not So) Monger, A Bittersweet Final Edition

The very last day of high school, as a senior, is May 9th – a fast-approaching date. This school year went by in a flash, with cheese taking up such a large portion of that time.

More Cheese Please, April

Cheese is delicious but how gouda can it get? Personally, gouda takes the cake for being so versatile and rich in flavor. Gouda is coated in a range of waxy coatings as it ages to perfection. Plenty of cheeses have edible rinds, but waxes are a little different. Wax serves as a seal to keep cheese hydrated while it ages. Rind is great and flavorful while wax really shouldn’t be eaten. But enough about the…

The Monthly (Not So) Monger, April Showers

Warmer weather is becoming far more constant as the sun peeks out from the clouds. But before any rays can be soaked up, the sky must have its temper tantrum. Rain or shine, stores shelve fresh produce and cheese – perfect for a picnic on those few sunny afternoons.

The Monthly (So Not) Monger, Foolish For Not Loving Cheese

Clouds are really pretty to look up and watch, but sometimes it turns to gloom in no time. Storm clouds roll in and people run inside to do absolutely nothing. But I personally think that rainy days are the prime outdoor picnic days. So, with that in mind, here’s my delicious, and slightly soggy, outdoor snack board.

More Cheese Please, March

Cheese is a lovely food that spices up snack time and can be added to sandwiches of all kinds. Ranging from sharp or mild cheddars to herbal-y goudas, cheese is just plain good.

Certain cheeses happen to sit…

ASL Club: Making a Comeback

 After two years and some brainstorming, a long-forgotten club is making its return to Forest Hills Eastern. The ASL club made its debut in 2020 with fliers hung on every wall possible, hoping to grab the attention of curious students. The first meeting was held on an afternoon once school concluded. It was semi-successful with five members but dissolved once Covid arrived. By the time conversations of starting up again could happen, two participants graduated,…
