My boss gave me some local mead, so I’ll be trying that, a new cider (with hints of pineapple, hooray!), my absolute favorite holiday snack (trader Joe’s gingerbread bars) and some frozen halibut.

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again. Seattle restaurants have bad fish & chips, and exorbitant prices, even for cod. Trader Joe’s halibut however, is a hidden gem. A million times better than what you find locally.

So what are you having to keep you satisfied this long weekend?
