Last weekend, we celebrated the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels (a week early, because the festival is today) by making a host of angel cookies and a dragon for them to battle. In the background you can see the feet of the fondue pot, which held a lake of cheezy fire into which we cast the dragon, piece by piece.

We also listened to Britten’s radio cantata “The Company of Heaven” (which I’m about to put on again).

We throw geeky parties.

Tuna Noodle Casserole

How I feed myself while Hannah’s gone.


  • 1 pound of rotini pasta $0.69
  • 1 pound of frozen peas $1.67
  • 2 cans of tuna $1.60
  • 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup $2.00
  • 1/3 pound of cheddar cheese $3.00
  • lots of freshly-ground black pepper


Cook the pasta and the peas. Mix everything except the cheese together and put into a lasagna dish. Top with cheese. Bake at 350°F until cheese has melted and begins to brown (about 1/2-hour).


@ $1.50/MEAL.

This is also basically how I survived grad school. I splurge on the cheese because basically pasta is pasta, tuna is tuna, and peas are peas, but there is no substitute for good cheese.

BONUS: start cleaning right when the casserole goes in the oven. Then by the time dinner is ready, all of the cooking dishes are clean except the lasagna pan, and that doubles as a storage container!
