Sean’s Delight, by David Gerrold

Sean’s Delight is a delicious recipe from the Hugo and Nebula award winner, David Gerrold, author of more than 50 books, several hundred articles and columns, and more than a dozen television episodes, including Star Trek’s “The Trouble with Tribbles”.

David wrote the following recipe for The Martian Child who would become his son.

Sean’s Delight

So, tonight’s culinary masterpiece, hereinafter referred to as Sean’s Delight, because he went back for seconds….

The last of a roast turkey breast (they sell them at Vons), cut up into small chunks.
Some chopped white onions. (They sell small packages at Vons.)
Some chopped red/orange/yellow peppers. (They sell small packages at Vons.)
Some Birds Eye Ultimate Petite Mixed Vegetables (frozen)
Some elbow noodles.
A can of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup.
A can of Campbell’s Cream of Chicken soup.

Boil the noodles.
Put equal amounts of the other stuff in a bowl.
Add the noodles.
Add the canned soup.
Mix it up.

(If you have any, you can sprinkle bread crumbs and grated cheese on top. This will give it a nice brown crust. I haven’t done this yet, but you can report back to me if it works.)

Put it all in a baking dish, and bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until you remember you put it in the oven.


You can rewarm it in the microwave.

I have no idea how many calories in a serving. I’d guess around 350.

Cheap, easy, and enough leftovers for tomorrow’s lunch.


David Gerrold is a classic sci-fi writer who will go down in history as having created some of the most popular and redefining scripts, books, and short stories in the genre. Serious Star Trek fans should consider purchasing their very own tribble. Follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

Many thanks to David for allowing me to share this brilliantly creative literary recipe.
