Tai Show North Japanese Restaurant in East Setauket

The restaurant has a variety of choices. You can choose to eat in the hibachi section or in the dinning area. Once in the dinning area, you can choose to eat in a screen enclosed booth.  The booths are located along a wall and there are movable screens that slide along a track.

My family loved the crisp green beans, mushroom cream sauce and gooey mozzarella cheese that was melted all around the green beans. It will definitely make a great side dish to accompany roasted turkey.

This afternoon, I  prepared the cranberry sauce. It’s really simple to make and the chunks of apples, cinnamon and sugar create this wonderful aroma that fills the kitchen. It not clumpy or gelatin like those cranberry sauces you might buy in the can.  Hopefully, my family will enjoy the homemade cranberry sauce tomorrow.
