APRIL 14 NYT Strands Solved

The theme made me think of books, theatre, and chess clubs right off the bat. But, when I randomly found TOMATO, I knew I wasn’t on the right track. Then, running from edge to edge at the top, I found LETTUCE and knew the theme was about club sandwiches today. I found SANDWICH as the left-to-right Spangram right after.

In the middle, I found PICKLE, and on its right was TURKEY. While on its left, I found BACON. Then, in the last couple of grids, I found MAYONNAISE. That concluded my game for the day, and gosh, am I hungry. Didn’t have to use a hint at least, which is always good.
