Designing the Menu

For my Thai dinner, I'd like to serve several dishes that fairly represent the cuisine. The Fried Fish Cakes sound good, and Peanut Satay seems like a must have. And I have lots of wrappers left over from previous dinners to make Spring Rolls. I definitely want some kind of light vegetable salad, and Pad Thai Noodles seem like a good choice for the soup. For the main course, probably some kind of shrimp stir-fry dish with rice. Of course, this sounds like way too much food, but leftovers are always a welcome treat for the next day, when the last thing I feel like doing is cooking.
