We lost another high-profile person to suicide this week and this one hit me hard. Mostly because I’ve read everything he’s written and lived vicariously through his travel/food shows. Anthony Bourdain will be sorely missed. I had so many favorite episodes I can’t even pick just one but he was so full of life.

We are actually on the road to a volleyball tournament. Our last club tournament. After the game we will have a meal as a team and then be on our way. It’s not been the greatest season for wins but very nice girls, coaches and parents.
Production week starts tomorrow and ends on June 24th. This time she has a part that requires special makeup and the like so adding time in for that will be interesting and new to us. I’ve reviewed the schedule carefully and think I have it covered but things change once you get into the theater. We are seeing the show on Saturday and then again the following week.
All I am watching is Fear the Walking Dead. If I’m not wrong, the finale is tonight.
My husband is very excited about the new season of Better Call Saul that was announced last week. However, I haven’t watched the show yet so my plan is to binge watch all the seasons so I can watch the premiere of season 4 on August 6th.
Unfortunately, the treatment my doc has me on has caused me to gain a lot of weight in a very short amount of time. It’s very depressing and is making me a little crazy so what I am making these days are organic, plant-based, protein shakes. I am not on a liquid diet because it’s not the 80s anymore but I am using them just to switch it up and gain some additional nutrition while I’m at it.
Anthony Bourdain’s body of work.
Here is a clip of him and his best friend, Chef Eric Ripert preparing for a meal. Eric was the one to find Bourdain in his room so it’s especially tragic. I pray for all those affected including Bourdain’s young daughter who is only eleven years old.
And this was probably one of his most memorable meals.
