99. weekend to-do's


  1. finally feed my serial addiction. serial is back for it's second season with something completely different. they're tackling the story of sgt. bowe bergdahl, the u.s. army soldier who abandoned his post in 2009, was then captured by the taliban and held for 5 years. the united states was able to retrieve him by trading 5 taliban prisoners for his safe return. this is a controversial story that has sparked strongly differing opinions. it will be very interesting to see how sarah koenig and co. handle it.
  2. new eats on the square. i've had several people highly recommend harvard square's newest restaurant, parsnip. taking over the location that was once home to upstairs on the square, parsnip has given it a mid-century makeover and offers a seasonal, globally-inspired menu. i'm so happy to welcome them to the neighborhood and try out their food for myself.
  3. hot chocolate! 'tis the season for something a bit more indulgent and the folks at taza chocolate can always be counted on to have the goods. this weekend, they are opening their doors for their annual holiday open house. i'm excited to check out some of their delicious offerings in addition to other local somerville goodies.

  1. cookie coma... i will be making and eating all kinds of holiday treats. here are a few places i will be starting at for inspiration: raspberry-almond linzer cookies, peanut butter sugar cookies, spicy gingerbread, thousand layer chocolate chip cookiesyummmm
