This week’s episode is brought to you by the Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls Podcast
Even during the busy holiday season nine months into a global pandemic, we still must feed our families. In a perennial favorite, this episode is all about what we’re cooking and eating during the strange 2020 holiday season. From our half-baked plans for holiday meals to the dinners that are getting us through, here’s the low down on what’s cooking in our homes right now.

Hail Mary Dinners and Cookies FTW
We’re in a weird place. Maybe you are too? We’re tired of cooking and want — need — to find ways to relax and enjoy the holiday season, so cooking family meals is a bit on autopilot this season. It’s not the most inspired, but it’s also working out just fine. So maybe we’ll put our holiday cooking on autopilot too? Time will tell.
