Bangalore Thanksgiving

This will be our first Thanksgiving in Bangalore.

Thanksgiving lunch from Erica's kitchen.

There will be:

Waldorf salad
Exotic salad
Leek & Mushroom soup
Cream of chicken soup
Bread Basket

The Highlights:

Stuffed Turkey
Mashed potato
Green beans with puff pastry
Cold cut platter

And to top it all

Fruit pies
Vanilla Ice cream
