Today we will have a bit of a variety show for you, mostly based on questions and comments from y’all from the last week or so. So today we tackle a backlog of sous vide questions, most importantly my thoughts on the plastic bags leaching into our systems, a celebration of someone who made a major life accomplishment from our community – and she is a regular, when it is a good idea to find a change of scene on a big project, what to do with too many tortillas, and a review of the #my3things approach to planning, along with an update on how I am doing with it this year and feedback from a friend.
