Countdown day three ~ cleaning and wine shopping

So I got the rest of the dusting/cleaning done. I went out and made a booze run-- two bottles of Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc and one Cabernet Sauvignon. Then I got a bottle of Kahluha, Amoretto, and dry Vermouth (for the turkey). I'm making an orange maple glaze for the turkey and it calls for Vermouth.

Then I made homemade baked macaroni and cheese for myself tonight. Jon's in Bethesda tonight. Tomorrow is grocery shopping and making the pecan pie. Then Thursday I'll make the stuffing, cook the turkey, make carrot cashew soup, spinach gnocchi , and cranberry orange relish. And of course mountains of mashed potatoes.

Friday I plan to sleep all day.
