An ideal NY Steakhouse should offer everything within budget

Dinning out in one of the best steakhouses near your place has always been a pleasurable experience. You must have become bored of eating regularly at your home and are on a look out for change. This enables one to seek a steakhouse in NY or a state in which they are residing. The fresh aroma of the steak dishes at such a place has the ability to attract numerous people. In fact, steak lovers would be a regular visitor to steakhouse because of their special preference for the food. If you love to have dishes made from beef products, then you surely will have a good time in a steakhouse.

NY steakhouse is the ideal place for all steak lovers. Just tell me, who would refrain from visiting a place that offers lip-smacking food, perfect ambience and a glass of choicest wine? No one will let this opportunity slip out of their hands. Well, the taste of the food depends on the way it is being cooked. In the matter of steak, they are cooked at different temperatures to give an alternate taste to the dish. So, you can have the chance of eating steak that is partially cooked or fully cooked. Partially cooked steak would have juice retention in it, while fully cooked steak would be completely dry.

Chilling out with friends and family members is what everyone wants after having worked in a tight busy schedule. If the working professional is a steak lover, then steakhouse is the perfect place for him or her. Basically, eating in your favorite steakhouse is just the reason to have some time that is calm and quiet. If you are planning to go for a quiet dinner, then steakhouse can provide you with the ideal atmosphere. You can go with your spouse or girlfriend and can give them an every cherishing moment.

A perfect steakhouse should not just have place for quiet dinners, but should also have certain days fixed for parties. You can select steakhouse as a perfect venue for the parties, if you have a passion for steak food. As per the menu is concerned, you can include a variety of steak dishes along with sea food and range of wines. The combination of surf and turf dish along with the drink of your choice can be best for enjoying that particular moment. There are numerous steakhouses in NY that reserve weekends for parties, so that many others can have the best time at this place.

What matters most is the rate and price of steak dishes at the steakhouse you are visiting. If you are willing to check out the rates before deciding on the steakhouse that you are visiting, you can go to internet and search the site. You will definitely find the rates of the steak dishes that are available with the steakhouse. In this way, you will be able to think and decide over the dinner or arrangement of party at that steakhouse that offers food within your budget. The best steakhouse should basically offer good food, cozy ambience, affordable rates and high quality of service.

How to remove tarnish from silver without losing any of the silver

Tarnish occurs because surface molecules of the silver react with sulphur from the air, or certain foodstuffs such as eggs, to form a compound called silver sulphide. So when you polish it off, you are actually removing some of the silver. For silver plated items, this means that with repeated polishing over many years there is a danger of wearing completely through the plating and exposing the base metal. The only solution then is to have the item re-plated.

So a better idea is to remove the tarnish by converting the silver sulphide back into silver. This is quite easy to do and doesn't require any sophisticated equipment. You will just need a bowl large enough to allow the silver item to be completely submerged, some hot water, some aluminium foil and some baking soda.

Line the bottom of the bowl with aluminium foil and put in the silver item, making sure it is in contact with the foil. Boil enough water to immerse the item and pour it over. Sprinkle the baking soda into the water, using about 1 tablespoon for each pint of water. It will froth and foam and may spill over the top of the bowl, so best do this in the sink. Straightaway, you should see the tarnish begin to disappear. For lightly tarnished items, it should all be gone in a few minutes. For heavily tarnished items, you may need to re-heat the water when it has started to cool and repeat the treatment.

So how does it work?

Well, it is an electrochemical reaction. In the hot water and baking soda solution a small electric current is generated between the touching aluminium and silver. The electric current causes a chemical reaction between the aluminium and the sulphur because aluminium has a greater affinity with sulphur than silver has. The sulphur in the tarnish is attracted into the solution and towards the aluminium, leaving the silver behind, where it belongs. The reaction happens faster when the solution is hot. The compound formed when aluminium and sulphur react is called aluminium sulphide and that's what you will find floating in the bottom of the bowl or stuck to the foil when you are finished. And your silver will be bright and shiny.

I work for Safeway in Edinburgh. Somedays I'd rather beat myself over the head with a block of wood than go in, but other days its bearable. We've been taken over by Morrisons! Wow.. Enjoy the change... Ummm yes so I randomly decided to look up safeway and I found this! I look forward to seeing what goes on here. :0)

Somerfield Staff Approaching
Hi all,
I work for Somerfield - Grocery Department, trying to get full time at the moment.
I understand what you all say with customers, they can be so arrogant, althought there are some really nice ones too that talk to you everytime they see you.
Goes both ways I suppose

Hello! *makes an impressive entrance being pushed in a shopping trolley*

I just joined this community because supermarkets have always played major roles as the places where some of my dramatically relevant decisions of what to do next with my life have been made. I've always found a way accompanied by a few chocolate bars, cheesecakes and a few bags of walker's :)

By the way, I have a Tesco-value life... so that kinda explains a lot of stuff and according to the test I took, 'Which Tesco-value product are you?' I was Tesco-value tampons.. deal with it ;)

I hate Safeway. Sorry, but I just do. I work for Genuardi's Family Markets, which is a chain of about 40 stores in southeastern Pennsylvania. I just hit my third year working there. Safeway bought out our company a little over a year ago, and WOW have they screwed things up. They have moved our products to different aisles, repainted the store, and have even discontinued a fair amount of products in order to infest our stores with Safeway Select brand items. I can handle the aforementioned problems. The one thing that I am tired of handling is the customers. They have turned on us, and it isn't even our fault. We are bitched out daily about how much our store sucks and how it isn't the "old Genuardi's". I am only a cashier....I had absolutely nothing to do with any of this. If one takes a look at any surrounding supermarket in the Philadelphia region, they will find that Genuardi's employees are generally faster and friendlier than anywhere else, yet we are never appreciated for what we do for these assholes. I used to like working there. I now dread going to work, and if you think I am in a position to quit, then think again. I am sick of dealing with petty people and all of their petty problems. I am going to be a police officer, and I will have to deal with human suffering on a daily basis. Human suffering does not include the reduced size of our paper bags because some fuckwad up in Safeway's headquarters decided it would be a hell of a lot more fun to cut the size of them to see how many more employees will quit and how many more customers we will lose. Perhaps I am being a bitch about this. I am only trying to point out how a large corporation like Safeway can take an honest 80 year old family company and nearly destroy it.

Ugh sorry, I've held that in for a long time :-P

also purchased many items from the 'taste the difference ' range.

and at times i can even taste the difference.

funny that.

no particularly good bargains found.

but they DID actually have halloumi on the shelf where the label is, and as i know this is a rare occurence i bought 2 packs.

thats all.

Good afternoon kittens,

Methinks the teenagers-on-rollerskates idea is just asking for trouble. What would be more fun, is if they could get a bunch of big strong weight-lifters to push the teenagers around the store in trolleys. How much fun would that be?

To introduce myself, my name is Ash, and I live in Glasgow, and I work in a Safeway. Contrary to the ret of the staff, I actually enjoy working there, as a cashier.

Anyway, I'm away to get dressed now darlings,

Ash, xxx

in tesco extra in pitsea they have teenage shop assistants on roller skates to enable them to speedily check prices. im sure this is just asking fo an accident to happen. they also have animatronic cows arses in the dairy section. but thats a good idea and not dangerous

and how can tesco manage to do 12 cans of own brand diet coke for 1.99 when safeway charge more than that for a 6 pack?

i have a :
safway abc card
tesco clubcard
premier points card (somerfield)
asda card (and its 4 years ago i lived near and shopped at asda)
sainsbury reward card

do supermarkets around the world have reward point card schemes?

This place holds no candle to Dominick's.

It's basic. It doesn't have nice things. Just boring same old same old.

But it was always fun to raise hell and get thrown out when I was in high school. ;)

Maybe I should go back there when I visit my hometown Chicago for old times' sake . =P

I'm from Chicago area. I miss Dominicks. It is a chain of supermarkets that only stay in the Chicagoland area. The supermarkets in Indiana suck shit. Meijer's is okay but it will NEVER be a Dominicks. Scotts sucks. It has NO variety of food and is way over priced. Krogers is just NASTY. It's just hick staple food. Nothing exotic ever.

I miss Dominicks. I miss Jewel too. ButDominicks is the best!

I love that feeling of when you've just come from the supermarket and you're fridge is filled with watermelon, a 1000 different cheeses, and those lush bio pots. it makes me sooo happy. i think it affects my mood in general cause its soo hellish and depressing when its just an empty fridge other than a malt loaf thats been in there 6 months and a few jars.
