How To Cook A Sweet Valentine

Sevy cooks for love every year on Valentine's Day, it goes with the career. But in 2000, as a birthday gift to me, he took a Valentine's Dinner off and we went to New York City. Not only would we dine at some of the world's finest establishments on that February 14th, he was thoughtful enough to include tickets to an annual Champion Dog Show at Madison Square Gardens, something I'd always wanted to attend.

It's been too long to remember the details of that trip, except the dinners at Gramercy Tavern and Jean Georges were two of the best meals we've ever had. And an English Springer Spaniel won that year - we had one at home that was only 5 months old.

It's not yet Valentine's Day this year, but tonight is Night One of the 133rd Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Madison Gardens. The TV schedule has been pitifully wracked for some reason, the show begins on USA Network at 7pm (Central) until 8pm, then switches over to CNBC for the second hour. Tomorrow, the entire two hours (or more) can be seen at 7pm on USA Network. Sweet doggies - sweet hubby.
