Great actionable kitchen tips and seasonal flare
I just finished this week’s episode, and maybe it’s Thanksgiving gratitude or I’m just being extra sappy, but I’m so appreciative of the show in general and this week in particular. For me, it’s a perfect balance of actionable tips, personal chit chat (a not-so-poor substitute for the in-person socializing I’m not doing these days), updates about responsible Covid behaviors, seasonal flare, and produce love. I’m having a puttering-around-the-house cozy day, and my only regret is that I’ve already listened to all the old episodes, so I only have a half hour of LM time today. I almost never relisten to old podcasts of any kind, but I’m seriously considering hitting up the LM archive for November shows of years past. Thank you!
