Day 35: A Fine Kettle of Tuna Fish

Noodling Around

Today Sean Spicer barred several major domestic media outlets as well as most foreign outlets, from the daily press conference, the gaggle, and 2 more walked out in protest: CNN, LA Times, NY Times, NY Daily News, Daily Mail, Politico, Buzzfeed, BBC news, all barred; AP and Time walked out in solidarity. He held the presser in his office instead, made them turn off their cameras; only ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, Breitbart, and few lesser conservative papers were allowed in.

In December he said barring media access is what a dictatorship does.

Ahem. Cameras off for a “press conference”.

This is thought to be punishment for breaking and pushing the story about Russian-Trump interaction before the election, and the latest disgrace of the White House trying to get the FBI to stop investigating it.

Plain Old Tuna Noodle Casserole

Your mom probably made this, or you make it and don’t bother looking at a recipe. I just happened to have some heavy cream in the refrigerator and was low on milk so I used that plus a little milk to fill the soup can halfway, and the difference the cream made was amazing.

4 ounces egg noodles                                           2/3 Cup milk or cream

5 oz. can chunk white tuna in water                1 Cup frozen peas

10.75 oz. can Cream of Mushroom Soup         1/2 Cup grated cheddar cheese


Preheat the oven to 375°.

Cook the noodles according to instructions on the package. While that’s cooking mix together the mushroom soup and milk in a 1.5 quart casserole. You can use the soup can to measure the milk or cream, just fill it half full. Add the peas and stir. When the noodles are done, drain and add them to the casserole. Stir again. Scatter the cheese on top, bake uncovered for 30 minutes.

Instead of the cheese you could take it out of the over after 20 minutes, top it with bread crumbs or crumbled crackers, or crushed potato chips, and put it back in to bake for another 10.
