Still wrapping my brain around the loss of Anthony Bourdain.   The spousebeast and I both adored him for different reasons (Kent identified with him, from the "I'm a bad boy cook, not a chef" attitude to the addiction issues.  I admired his humanity, and envied his ability to travel.  Also, I dig his writing style).

Currently watching the No Reservations marathon on Travel Channel.  It's a weird way of pre-gaming for the Tony Awards, but...yeah, that's me.  I get to hog the television, because I worked today, damnit!

Of course, the spousebeast also worked.  I came home to homemade linguine with Bolognese.  Yum!

He mentioned how long it has been since we've had homemade noodles and sauce, and I reminded him he has had sufficient time to recover from Noodles & Co. to like pasta again.

Of course, now chicken is more or less off the menu, because of his current job.  Le sigh.  I kinda wish he would get a kickass job at a sushi place, so he wouldn't 86 entire categories of food I love off the general household meal rotation.  I've really been wanting to do a big Sunday supper of roast chicken, but it seems unfair when he spends 8 hours a day, 5 days a week...and a lot of it involves making/handling rotisserie chicken.

I'll come up with something for next weekend, since it's my weekend off AND a payday weekend.  Of course, I want to focus on using what we have, because it's getting to be freezer clean out time again.  Besides, I want to start saving up money (cutting even further back on groceries is one really easy way), because......

WE ARE GOING TO SEE ALICE COOPER IN OCTOBER!!!!!!!

*bouncybouncybouncy*

Okay...time to annoy FB with my annual Tony postings.

Lol, I feel the same way Kent does about rotisserie chicken for the same reasons.

His death bummed me out. I feel like I can relate to him since he was also an addict, and I definitely know what it's like to be suicidal. He seemed like a really cool guy, and had a neat way of showing people other cultures and opening their minds. He will surely be missed.

OOOOhhhh, Alice Cooper! I hear he is a good show.

I forgot spousebeast worked at Noodles and Co..

I think Mike dies a little when I want pizza and, well, he is still in that level of hell and I am so gone from it.

This will be my third time seeing him in concert. He is AMAZING!

Kent's gonna have to deal with chicken, though, because we have a freezer]full of it.

so is kent 86ing the chicken because he works with it all day? or because he eats it often at work?

I don't think its fair or reasonable that he and his job gets to dictate what foods YOU can or cant eat. whats the big deal if you cook a chicken dinner here and there? he doesn't have to eat it! especially since as a cook and an adult, he is fully capable of making himself something ELSE to eat on the occasions when you cook chicken.

I do understand why he wouldn't want to eat it. I just don't understand why that has to mean what you want doesn't matter. you're working hard too! your opinion of what you do or don't want to eat matters too.
