Aromas in my kitchen

Who's idea was it to ban consumption of alcohol in my house in December? 

In a moment of madness I decided I wouldn't drink alcohol in the house on my own for one month.  It was an attempt to save calories for the big day but it is torture when I actually have to open a bottle of wine to put into a casserole.  I have just made the most delicious stew for friends coming over tonight - it's a Catalan beef stew with a twist - the twist being that it has chocolate, cinnamon and orange in it - how very festive.  Well, I can say that my kitchen smells mouth-wateringly good and the other half of the bottle of red is teasing me...roll on 8pm when my friends arrive.
