Redeeming qualities of winter?

I hate winter. Winter in Seattle is 7 to 10 months of cold, damp, dark, rarely yielding gray and drizzle. And on top of that, the produce gets lousy and boring, especially if, like me, you don't believe in jetting food in from Chile (although those pencil asparagus were tempting today).

How do you stay excited about food through the winter months? I can think of a few winter foods that excite me, like kumquats, oysters, truffles, the occasional braised bunny or duckling, but lately whenever I go grocery shopping, I get kind of depressed. Help!
