Happy weekend! That’s right, it’s the Saturday edition of Trash Panda Puzzles! This week has been a blast. My grandmother is in town and while we initially thought we’d only see each other one evening, a delay in her plans meant that we got to spend an extra evening together. She introduced my mother and I to Farkle which she then proceeded to win most of the games. (No seriously, we had it out for my grandmother, and she easily wiped the floor with us. Overall, it was a fun time to socialize and hang out. While the word FARKLE doesn’t show up in today’s crossword, it has been added to my word list.
Speaking of today’s crossword, it’s a 15x15 with standard symmetry. The inspiration for my seed word at 24-Across was that I was eating spring rolls when I realized that the dip could be a 13-letter entry. So as usual when I have food related clues/words, I do apologize in advance if my puzzle makes you hungry. Enjoy!
