February has landed and so too has Foodie Roundup #1905.
Gone is dry January. So too is veganuary. You may even be struggling to keep up with your new year’s resolutions. The world, however, keeps on spinning and churning out news stories to beat the band.
Seen as I’m up and about early of a Sunday morning, here’s the early edition of this week’s Foodie Roundup.
