  1. Question on extra crispy roasted veg. Joy, are you using chick pea or potato “flour” vs “starch” ? I am thinking its flour, but not sure.

  2. I happen to be a member of an upcycle sewing group and someone recently posted about some cotton fiber insulation that she’d gotten from a meal kit and wanted ideas to upcycle it. I’d seen similar products (typically made from denim off cuts) used in home building.

    Anyway, this got me curious given Joy’s passionate distaste for meal service packaging, so I went hunting and looking and behold, there ARE meal kit companies doing something about it!!
