Fire up those grills, it’s a meat filled Teeny Tuesday here at Trash Panda Puzzles! Yesterday, I discovered a new restaurant that serves a monster of a burger. Seriously, this thing was huge. Yes, I ate it all in one sitting. At the time of writing this intro (I publish these posts the evening before akin to the NY Times), I’m fighting off from falling into a food coma. It was worth every bite.
Okay, so what does this have to do with crosswords? Not much, but there are a couple of meat related clues in the puzzle. The grid is 9x9 with horizontal symmetry. I originally had this grid with standard symmetry, but I didn’t like how it looked so I started playing around and ended up with what you see below. I can’t find any crosswords that have been published with my seed word at 10-Across, so I’m a bit stoked for that. Happy solving!
