Need Menu Suggestions, Please!

I recently started my dream job as a cook in a private residence. My 'new family' is very easy-going, and always open to new foods. I make up the menus for the week, and they are always happy to let me decide. I am very lucky!
I have a million ideas in my head, and sometimes it's hard to narrow it down, which brings me to tonights dilemma. What to make for a side dish. I am making stuffed flounder. The stuffing will either crab or vegetable based, not breadcrumbs. I plan on a seafood gazpacho (shrimp), as a starter, and roasted asparagus as the vegetable. So...what else? I think I've been making too many rice dishes lately, pilafs and orzo. They aren't overly fond of potatoes but they are an option. I am drawing a blank here! Help!
Thank you.
