Entering the Home Stretch

     Here’s hoping you have all of your planning done and most of the ingredients purchased for this Thursday’s exercise in excess, otherwise known as Thanksgiving dinner.

     If you still have a hole or two on your menu, check out our weekend postings or go directly to the “Food & Wine Recipes” archives. There, you’ll find recipes for a great side dish (Acorn Squash With Apple-Raisin Stuffing) and a wonderful dessert (Pumpkin Cheesecake Tarts).

     Both are tasty alternatives to the same-old same-old dishes. (Really, will anyone miss the green bean casserole if you substitute the Acorn Squash With Apple-Raisin Stuffing? I think not.)

     In between your Turkey Day prep work, I hope you’ll check in with us tomorrow and Wednesday, as we’ll be completing our countdown of the Top 10 North American Wine Destinations.

     We’ve included a few surprises on the list, and all of our posts are archived and available for your perusal by following the “Our Wine Travel Log” link on the left side of the VinesseTODAY homepage.

     Here’s a quick glance at the list thus far:

     10. Bern’s Steak House in Tampa, Florida

     9. New York’s Finger Lakes region

     8. Texas Hill Country

     7. Canada’s Niagara Peninsula

     6. Paso Robles, California

     5. Dundee Hills, Oregon

     4. St. Helena (Napa Valley), California

     3. Las Vegas

     That’s right – Vegas, baby! And just remember: The wine consumed in Vegas stays in Vegas.

     Tomorrow: The countdown continues with #2.
