Thank you all! I have some great ideas now. I want to make it all, but will probably go with the hummus idea (never even thought of that) and a simple salad of tomatoes and cukes with maybe some feta.

I agree about it being all in one.
You've got the protein, the starch and the vegetable in the dish.
For me, it'd be complete with a fruit of some sort. Beautiful slices of the fruit in season, laid out on a small platter with nuts along side. Just a thought.

Well when I read in I thought of spinach with garlic and lemon, and thought I was alone till I saw VB said spinach too. Sounds delicious what ever you go with.

Thanks for any help.
Lyndalou, sounds yum. I think you have all your bases covered re starch, seafood, veggie & bread. You could add soup/bisque, salad, a fab dessert, appys, & beverage - maybe Sangria.

We had the dinner last evening. It was delicious. I had the aformentioned shrimp and couscous dish along with a tomato and cucumber salad with my really killer (and very simple) dressing. Hummus and naan filled out the menu, along withsome good wine, of course.

I forgot dessert. Just a simple dish of fruit sorbet.

Thanks again for all of the great suggestions.
