A killer mac 'n' cheese
Ingredients
* sea salt * freshly ground black pepper * 45 g butter * 3 heaped tablespoons plain flour * 10 cloves garlic, peeled and finely sliced * 6 bay leaves * 1 litre semi-skimmed milk * 600 g dried macaroni * 8 tomatoes * 150 g Cheddar cheese, freshly grated * 100 g Parmesan cheese, freshly grated * a few sprigs fresh thyme, leaves picked * 2 splashes Worcestershire sauce, optional * 1 grating nutmeg, optional * 3 big handfuls fresh breadcrumbs * olive oil

Method
'Mac 'n' cheese' is a classic American pasta dish – everyone loves it. Sometimes it's done so badly in the convenience area, it's almost become famous for being horrible, but when you do it properly, trust me, it's an absolute killer. Feel free to use any tubular pasta you want. I've made this dish my own by lightening it with sweet tomatoes and giving it some crunch with delicious breadcrumbs. Just you wait till you try it! This dish isn't going to win any prizes in the nutrition department, but you can, and should, balance it with a nice salad. If you only have it once in a while as a special treat, it'll do you no harm.

Get a large pan of salted water on the boil. Melt the butter in a large ovenproof saucepan over a low heat, then add the flour and turn the heat up to medium, stirring all the time, until you get a paste – this is your roux. Add all the sliced garlic – don't worry about the amount because each slice will caramelise like toffee in the roux. Keep cooking and stirring until golden and the garlic is nice and sticky. Add the bay leaves and slowly whisk in the milk a little at a time to ensure you get a nice smooth sauce. Bring the mixture to the boil, then leave it on a low heat to simmer and tick away, stirring occasionally. Preheat your oven to 220ºC/425ºF/gas 7.

Cheese

...Cheese is a food derived from milk that is produced in a wide range of flavors, textures, and forms by coagulation of the milk protein casein. It comprises proteins and fat from milk, usually the milk of cows, buffalo, goats, or sheep. During production, the milk is usually acidified, and adding the enzyme rennet causes coagulation. The solids are separated and pressed into final form.[1] Some cheeses have molds on the rind or throughout. Most cheeses melt at cooking temperature. Hundreds of types of cheese from various countries are produced. Their styles, textures and flavors depend on the origin of the milk (including the animal's diet), whether they have been pasteurized, the butterfat content, the bacteria and mold, the processing, and aging. Herbs, spices, or wood smoke may be used as flavoring agents. The yellow to red color of many cheeses, such as Red Leicester, is produced by adding annatto. For a few cheeses, the milk is curdled by adding acids such as vinegar or lemon juice. Most cheeses are acidified to a lesser degree by bacteria, which turn milk sugars into lactic acid, then the addition of rennet completes the curdling. Vegetarian alternatives to rennet are available; most are produced by fermentation of the fungus Mucor miehei, but others have been extracted from various species of the Cynara thistle family. Cheese is valued for its portability, long life, and high content of fat, protein, calcium, and phosphorus. Cheese is more compact and has a longer......

...In a matter of weeks, my entire life is going to be flipped upside down. I have enrolled myself in to a very treacherous and horrible class that goes by the simple code of COMM 1320. Public Speaking. Speeches, talking, being sociable, are simply not my things. I become fearful, tense, and nervous when I have to stand in front of an audience and give some type of presentation. For now, I have time, time to devote myself to becoming better, and get out of this closet of being scared. The character of Who Moved My Cheese? that I am most like would definitely have to be Hem and moving beyond fear. I have never been a big fan of talking in front of people. Whether it be explaining a small topic to a group of five or six people, or informing a class of about thirty people about a certain topic, I have never had the confidence to move past my fears and learn to become a good speaker. When it comes to any type of public conversation, my body instantly tightens up and I lose every train of thought in my head due to a lack of composure and mental stability. The smallest type of conversation can make me freeze up and cause me to become speechless. Any encounter with a stranger is definitely a good example. I usually stick with basics if I open the door for somebody or just greeting somebody, and I say “thank you,” or “hello.” Learning to somehow get over this would be not only beneficial to me, but to everybody that I associate myself with. Being like Hem is definitely not something...

Killers

...Killers What does it take for someone to end a human life? There are many studies and specialists that center themselves on this question. Is it a lack of self-control? Do murderers have a distorted understanding of morals, ethics, and basic “do’s and don’ts” of traditional society? One of the most common motives for murder is anger and vengeance. In the short stories “A Rose for Emily” and “Killers,” the main characters exhibit similar motives for the murders they commit. Both people were pushed over the edge by the loss of someone close to them. They were pushed to the point of taking a human life. In William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily,” Emily, a scorned and lonely woman murdered her lover because the thought of being alone was too much to handle. Emily also kept the body of her dead lover locked in a room for forty years. Not only did she kill her lover Homer, she stored his dead body in bed so she could lay with him every night. Why would a woman kill the man she loves? In the story, her lover was about to leave her and he was the only person in Emily’s life. Her controlling father was already dead, she had no family, and the town constantly gossiped about her. When her lover, Homer Barron, was going to leave her she felt betrayed. If he really loved her, why would he leave? Who was he leaving her for? He wanted to be free from her, and the best way to get back at someone who wants their freedom is to trap them. However, Emily took it one step to far.......

Cheese

...Research Project Cheese Origins, history and where it is now found in the world In the ancient eras, during the Greeks and Romans’ time, cheese was an important trade product and was mentioned extensively in the literature of the day (including in Homer’s odyssey, whereby Cyclops Polyphemus’s cave have description on cheese’s production). In the first century AD, The Roman writer Apicius states the steps in cheese production when writing. The Roman word for cheese is caseus, which is derived from the word casein, which means milk protein that is curdled to make cheese. The French word for cheese fromage and Italian is formaggio and Italian word, which come from the Greek word formos which stands for form or mould. Essentially, cheese is produce by curdling fermented milk then removing the liquid that forms which is known as the whey. The curds are generally curdled using rennet; a substance extracted from the stomach of animals such as cows, and salt is used to flavor it. It was unclear when exactly rennet was first used, but there is assumption that it was by the Etruscans, during the fifth and sixth century BC. The Romans were the ones who pioneered the method of cooking curds in cheese making, allowing for longer shelf life, enabling harder cheese to be trade and transport conveniently. The combination of bacteria used to ferment the milk, in combination with kind of milk and particular type of cheese-making method used, plus the action of time as cheese is......

Many have debated that Pc is better than Mac while others have debated Mac is better than Pc. Only a few have said that it depends on what it’s used for. If only we had more insight to both sides of Mac and Pc. Many people pick a computer based on what they are used for to and don’t find the computer that’s right for them. Others don’t find out the facts about each computer and just go with the cheapest because it’s cheap, even though they would be getting a cheap computer it can still be the wrong kind of computer for them, plus it wouldn’t work to their advantage.

Cheese

...Cheese I am definably a cheese lover. There are over 600 different kinds of cheese so you can’t get bored from eating cheese. My favorite dishes with cheese are pizza, any kind of Mexican dishes, macaroni and cheese, grill cheese sandwich, process cheese (just unwrap and eat), chucks of cheese for snacks, different pastas with cheese and of course the cheese burger. I love going to the Mexican restaurant and ordering cheese dip, it hot and you dip your chip into the bowl of cheese and it just makes everyone eating feel good. Conversation starts and everyone is laughing and dripping away at the cheese bowl. Americans typically use less than six different types of cheese in their kitchen: cheddar, Swiss, parmesan, mozzarella, Colby, and maybe blue. Cheese lovers should not limit themselves to the status quo; there are hundreds of types of French cheese alone, not to mention Italy, Spain, or America cheeses. Basic types of cheese are categorized as fresh (short shelf-life), soft or semi-soft cheeses (completely edible), blue/bleu (falls into every catalog but fresh), washed-rind (“Stinky” cheese), hard (firm to truly hard), uncooked pressed (“cheddaring” to prolong the shelf like), and cooked pressed (Hard cheese types must be aged for longer). All cheese is made from the milk of cows, goats or sheep. The process to make cheese can last from two weeks to years depending on the cheese that is being made. I want get into how cheese is made because frankly it is a......
