menu query - too heavy?

missliss | Dec 11, 200402:56 PM     10

I'm having some friends over for dinner next weekend and I'm concerned that the food is too heavy. What do you think? Any suggestions for substitutions? And I feel like I'm missing something in the middle part of the meal (another veg?). Thanks for your input!

Red pepper - feta dip
hummus
carrots
peppers
olives
pita chips

Roasted pork loin with spiced pears
Wild rice with cherries
Butter lettuce salad w/candied walnuts, goat cheese and apples

ice cream
homemade coffee-caramel sauce or chocolate almond sauce
cookies.
