Whoever wrote the NYT Connections for today had a strange interest in cooking oil and repairing the house for some reason. In that same vein, I began with the Blue category by nailing down all the cooking oils. It was quite easy actually since I love to cook.
I then moved to the Yellow category for Ice Creams. I mean, do you even need help here? I did have some trouble with the Green since I am not exactly a handyman, but I ended up getting it in the end.
With only four words left, I combined them all together and got the Purple category and NYT Connections for December 9.
