This week, we wrap up our conversation with Dino on cooking. We talk about some easy prep stuff you can make ahead, tips on using it, and long talk about food security. We even discuss tea in China vs. tea in the US. I hope you’ve been enjoying the series as we wrap up this week. But before that Ursula and I talk about how we’ve been productive this past week.
