NYT Spelling Bee 7-27-21 final

I learned a thing about how to get the smell out of a nonstick saucepan! Last night Calah made a reduction sauce for chicken and used oregano as an ingredient. The saucepan then smelled like oregano. All I had to do was fill the saucepan with water and top it off with some white vinegar, bring it to a boil, dump it out. No more oregano odor! You are welcome.

Yesterday I missed the pangram, CLICKABLE, ACAI (like always), KICKBACK, LIBELEE, LIKEABLE, and LILAC.

Meatier Misses

BAILEE: A person or party to whom goods are delivered for a purpose, such as custody or repair, without transfer of ownership. I’d expected it to be someone who is bailed out of jail.
ILIAC: Relating to the ilium or the nearby regions of the lower body.

LABILE: technical Liable to change; easily altered.

labile (adj.)

mid-15c., “prone to lapse,” from Latin labilis, from labi “to slip” (see lapse (n.)). Hence, in chemistry, “prone to undergo displacement” (c. 1600).

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).
