A baked potato is objectively one of the best mini-meals in existence, so I enjoyed this Strands puzzle from the NYT. Not that I realized what the connection here was until relatively late on in the game; I’d already found BUTTER, CHILI, BACON and CHIVES before getting the spangram, and at that point all I knew was that clearly there was some kind of food thing going on here.

Once I got the spangram, BAKEDPOTATO, it all became a lot easier, with only my inability to spell BROCCOLI (it always trips me up) causing me any problems.
