I promised you I would post links to my appetizers that would create an entire seven course meal of Tiny Foods for your guests! According to Wikipedia, a traditional seven course meal consists of these courses:
First Course: Appetizer
Second Course: Soup
Third Course: Salad or Vegetables
Fourth Course: Fish
Fifth Course: A meat: beef, pork or chicken
Sixth Course: Dessert
Seventh Course: Cheese
Some sources say that a palate cleanser such as a sorbet is the fourth course and they either leave off the salad or consider salad the appetizer or they leave off cheese course or put cheese in the place of the dessert. Other sources will include a starch course - traditionally served with the meat course and leave off either the salad or the cheese. I'm confused now, aren't you?
Since our whole meal will consist of appetizers or finger foods, many of which have cheese in them, I have chosen to leave off the cheese course and include a starch course between the meat and fish.

Here's an interesting little quote about starters, appetizers and entrees from Wikipedia:
"In French, entrée means entry, admission. L'entrée (singular) or les entrées (plural) are the appetizers. In Great Britain, entrée may be used for the same thing but the term starters is more commonly used. In Australia, entrée is commonly used instead of appetizers or starters. Although it was originally one of the earlier courses in North America also, it is now used for the main course. OED lists it as the main course, but gives an additional British English meaning: a ready-made dish served between the fish course and the main course."
