NYT Spelling Bee 12-22-20 final

Hello from Day 34 of the current California COVID constant curfew. I haven’t heard of any extension of the lockdown for beyond Sunday.

Yesterday I missed ACAI and TACT as easier ones.

Meatier misses

ACACIA: A tree or shrub of warm climates that bears spikes or clusters of yellow or white flowers and is frequently thorny.

The Lion King tree gets me again!

PICCATA: Cooked in a sauce of lemon, parsley and butter.

Chicken piccata from https://www.saltandlavender.com/chicken-piccata/

About raabidfun

I'm a guy living the #raabidfun lifestyle. I figured I would create a blog about crossword puzzles I do. The idea is to do the NYT crossword and the WSJ crossword daily as much as I can. That includes when I don't finish and have clearly failed. They can be difficult. Also I am not an attorney, and any legal analysis in this blog reflects my interpretation, which means it can be flawed and should not be relied upon for use in legal matters (especially against me).
