    i'm not sure if this is the proper section for this question, but our menus are DIY, sooo here goes!

    i have to make personalized menus for each guest so the waiters at the sheraton know who ordered which entree. i think i want to use a one-word indicator and do it in spanish to make it more festive! i think i have one of them down for sure, but the others i'm not completely sure about...any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

    menu choices:
    chicken = POLLO
    fish = ?
    vegetarian lasagna = ? (word for lasagna or vegetable would work?)

    also, what about titles of menu?
    salad = ?
    entree = ?
    dessert = POSTRE (?)

    anything cute to put at the beginning similar to "bon appetit"?

    i didn't realize i was so rusty with my spanish! i can't remember the word for fish for goodness sake!

    thanks in advance for any and all help!! i can't wait to finish these.....

              Entree = entrante or primer plato
              Fish = pescado. Beware, the "pez" is not dead yet Pescado literally means "fished"...
              Lasagna = lasa±a

                    OMG ! You're right "entr©e" was english not french !!

                    In french, "entr©e" is the appetizer...

                    I already noticed that when I speak Spanish, the next language I have in mind is French... not English... thanks for catching this !
