For appetizers a few ideas could be chicken empinadas, stuffed mushrooms, fruit kebabs

I think a seasonal soup would make a great first course.

In my culture the salad is the final course before dessert, the order is usually a broth or vegetable based soup like minestroni, split pea, pumpkin, or squash, then a stew usually rabbit or lamb, then the main course which could be lamb, beef, chicken, or fish, sometimes served with a vegetable/non-lettuce salad like tomato & avocado; then the green salad, and finishing the meal with a cheese & fruit platter.  And fianlly, for special occasions there’s a sweet dessert of some kind.

I love kebobs – especially with different dipping sauces. And coconut shrimp. And anything on a baked cheese disc.

One of my friend’s had a squash soup as the first course at his wedding and I still drools just thinking about it!

My all time favorite is gourmet mac and cheese. It’s fantastic in little ramikins.
