    Tom is right. Traditional steakhouse sides are intended to be "family style". When put in that context I hope the image isn't so odd to you. These prices are steep but given the possibility of sharing and if it meets the quality of restaurants like the Palm in NYC, I would not mind it for a special occasion.
  2. I found apps for both my Samsung TV and Roku. Put on an old phone and they both work like charms.

    Looking for dried kidney beans

    The guy at the Tuesday market has a huge variety of dried beans. If you walk in on the lower level and make an immediate left to the outside lane where the tamales are being sold he is just to the right of that corner.

    Traditional style drawer pulls??

    I might try the iron maker in the strip just down from IShop. It might not be too expensive to have them custom made.

    Consignment shops--your favorite

    There is a new and very nice bazaar across from Puritan Poultry. I think they are called Bazaar del Lago. First time I went there, a week or so ago, they were loaded with nice things. Next time many of those things were sold. It is a large space which allows things to be displayed nicely. Would suggest it for furniture, rugs, etc. Maybe It's Kinda for some smaller stuff.

    Where to buy Plantation shutters?

    I have interior light blocking shades which I purchased from Quick Blinds. They block the light and you can see out. Not as nice looking as plantation shutters which I had in Florida and loved. I am also having pull down shades to block sun and rain from my terrazzo. Maybe, if you block from the terrace, it will keep it out of your house.

    We have used Carmen and Octavio and were pleased. Another option is Quick Blinds near Super Lake. Also very happy with them.
  14. Fablady is the person I was referring to so glad she is on to this. Maybe you two can meet at Christiana Park where lots of expat dog lovers congregate most mornings.
  15. How much does she weigh? Know someone who is looking for female around 25 pounds.
