Puzzle Notes

Dear friends:

Tonight we have a 14x11 puzzle by Madeline Kaplan, coming at you with 3.5/5 difficulty. It's called "Outer Crust".

Here's what Madeline has to say: "I don't remember exactly where the idea for this puzzle came from, but I was probably feeling hungry. I'm glad we could find a midi grid shape to accommodate 31-Across as a seed entry. My favorite clues are 16-Across and 1-Down. And as an Ohioan the answer to 35-Across is still very painful..."

Headed to your inbox next week: a couple of puzzles from the editors' (virtual) desks!

Thanks for your support, and happy pride!
