NYT Connections May 26

The NYT Connections puzzle for May 26 was interesting enough to solve but not difficult enough to cry. I interestingly began with the Green category and while I am no stylish, I got these words immediately.

I then moved onto the Yellow category and to be honest, I didn’t know what a Griddle was. But it was the only other word that sounded kitcheney so I had that too. Luckily, the Purple category came next and while I didn’t understand the logic here I combined all the words that sounded the same to me.

There were only four words left. I got them all together along with the Blue category and the NYT Connections puzzle for May 26.
