Today’s NYT Strands Answers (July 11)

The Strands puzzles have been rather easy recently. I promise I didn’t salivate when I read Lunch in the theme today, but I found BROCCOLI on the right edge and BUTTER on the right fairly quickly. I also connected the letters to make BACON and CHILI right below and above Butter, respectively.

I repeatedly kept going back to Baked, but the Spangram didn’t click for me. I then stumbled upon CHIVES in the top right, followed by Potato in the middle. However, Potato wasn’t the answer so I connected the letters from the top to the bottom to surprisingly reveal today’s Spangram – BAKED POTATO. Finally, I found CHEDDAR at the bottom right corner to wrap up the puzzle.
