Objective: An intimate Valentine's Day dinner.

Problem: Romantic restaurants are jammed, and slaving in the kitchen spoils the mood.

Solution: Put on a dreamy CD and unpack the groceries. Then, as dinner cooks, sip a little Merlot and bring out the china, crystal, and candles. After chocolate truffles for dessert, let the magic begin.
