Tuesday's New York Times crossword puzzle solved: December 11, 2018

My time: 4:43.

--

Amanda Chung and Karl Ni got together to compile this puzzle.  It's a bit of a recycled idea, from yesterday's the plot thickens.  Today it's all about the COMPOST BIN.  For phrases that belong in there are SHELL SHOCK, PEEL OUT, GROUNDS CREW, and PIT BOSS.

For "visit on a whim" I put *POP IN but it's POP BY.  I thought "real estate measurement" would be SQ. FT. but it's AREA.

They do say that larghissimo is the SLOWEST of all the musical tempos.

A NEGAWATT is, sadly, only theoretical.  It is the hypothetical amount of energy saved through conservation or efficiency.  Thus the nega- prefix.  Negative power.

Dutch painter Jan STEEN appeared December 19, 2017.

Tony winner AUDRA McDonald was last spotlighted on May 16.

Another fun, easy puzzle with nearly nothing new for me.  It was SUPER for a Tuesday.  And now ADIEU.
