F

or so many, macaroni and cheese is a
hands-down favorite comfort food.
A specialty dish that was introduced
to America by Thomas Jefferson, it was his
cousin Mary Randolph who popularized it
in her cookbook “The Virginia Housewife,”
published in 1824.

Whether you dress it up or down or
enjoy it as a side or main dish, macaroni and
cheese offers delicious versatility and partners
perfectly with many meals. It travels well, too,
for tailgating or bring-a-dish parties.This particular macaroni and cheese recipe uses three
cheeses, giving it a rich, creamy texture and
fantastic flavor. While curly pasta is pictured
here, you can easily substitute elbow. With so
many tasty possibilities, don’t limit yourself to
the variations below.

EASY PEASY CHEESY MACARONI
2 cups (8 ounces) curly or elbow style pasta

1/2 stick butter, divided

1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs

1/2 teaspoon paprika

3 tablespoons flour

3 cups milk

1 4-ounce log chevre (a fresh, soft un-ripened
goat cheese)

2 cups coarsely shredded Jarlsberg cheese

1 cup cubed American cheese




In same pot over very low heat, melt
butter; remove from heat.
Measure 2 tablespoons butter and, in
small bowl, combine it with breadcrumbs
and paprika. Set aside.
Return pot to heat.
Whisk in flour and simmer until bubbly
(1 minute). Gradually add milk, goat
cheese and shredded Jarlsberg. Cook over
very low heat, stirring constantly until
mixture is creamy and thickens slightly.
Return pasta to the pot and toss until
coated; mix in diced American cheese.
Transfer to prepped casserole dish and
sprinkle with buttered breadcrumbs. Bake
30 minutes or until center is bubbly-hot
and crumbs are golden. Serves 8-10.

VARIATIONS:
When combining pasta with cheese sauce,
fold in:
•    2 cups cooked small shrimp (or one can of
tuna, drained) with 1 cup frozen petite peas.

•    2 cups each chopped cooked beef and
mushrooms.


Instructions:

•    2 cups each cubed kielbasa or ham and
chopped grape tomatoes. Instead of buttered
breadcrumb topping, top with crushed, lightly
salted tortilla chips.



•    2 cups each chopped cooked chicken and
broccoli florets.


Preheat oven to 350.
Butter a 2-quart round ovenproof casserole dish.
Cook pasta one minute less than package
directions; transfer to colander, and drain.

yeah, my best friend/roommate is a bass player, we
have been playing together a while now, he could
be here in like 5 minutes if you want?” And that’s
it, we were complete.  Oh yeah, and they happen
to both be insanely talented, creative, personalities
that fit right in with us, and much like Daryl and
Chris they have been playing together for years. 
It was such an obvious and natural collaboration,
especially since we basically came together through
online band blind dating.

for the Rolling Stones or Tool.

Way Off Starboard

A

s the 5th largest city in the state of California, Fresno has a lot to be known for; from
being #1 in the nation for agricultural production, to being home of the famous Fresno State
Bulldogs. One of the things not mentioned during
this topic of conversation is how Fresno also has
one hell of an underground artist/music scene.

Deep within the pulsating underground
is a music scene utterly dripping with talent; it
thrives in all different genres, R&B, Hip Hop,
Rock, Metal, Blues, you name it. However, unless
you’re one of these talented artists, or friends of a
talented artist, or just running in to a performance
night at a club or venue via happenstance, chances
are you aren’t going to hear much about whom
these groups or individuals are and what they’re
doing. Here at The Valley’s Nickel we decided to
fix that.

We sat down with local alternative rock
group, Way Off Starboard, and asked them a
few questions to find out who they are and what
they’re all about.

First off, who’s who in the band?
Brendan Kelly – Vocals
Daryl Bryson – Guitar left and backing vocals
Chris Denton – Guitar right
John Albertson – Bass and backing vocals
Nick Anderson – Drums and percussion

What’s the story behind the name ‘Way Off
Starboard’?
[Brendan] A little over a year ago Daryl, Denton,
and I were sitting in the driveway jamming out,
putting together our set list.  We were brainstorming names, and Denton is throwing out
whatever he sees. And he starts pushing “Fence
Post.”  Good for a laugh, but no.  So we go on
and play another song, and when it’s over Denton
shakes his head and quietly says, “that was way off
starboard.” That’s it. Maybe it was since he had
just started flight lessons, I don’t know.  Honestly,
I don’t think he does either; it’s not something I’ve
heard him say before or since. But we liked the
sound of it.
Describe your sound. Why that particular style?
Our sound is contributed to a collage of musical
influences we each bring to the band. Our influences range from folk, rock, metal, indie, alternative, 80s, 90s, etc….let’s face it there is no shortage
of great influences out there for the aspiring musi-
