I am looking for a comprehensive list for Shabbos menus. That way I can try to mix and match every Shabbos without making the exact same meal(s) over and over.`
What I mean is I want to be able to make a list like this:

Fish course:
Gefilte fish from jar
GF baked
3 layer GF

Salad course:
Israeli Salad
Potato Salad
Pasta salad - tricolor
Pasta salad - KBD


Chicken soup w Matzo Balls
Chicken soup w mandlach
Ved soup

Hot Chicken (ie Friday night):
BBQ Chicken
Chicken on potatoes
Chicken on Rice

Cold Chicken (ie Shabbos day):
Cold cuts

Pot kugel
Yerushalmi kugel

ice cream

it's really so hard to write these lists without giving each recipe etc. really the best thing for you to do is to take a couple of your favorite cookbooks and flip through them section by section and pick out the recipes that look good in each catergory. But you asked for more lists so I will give you what I can.

Side Dishes (that are not kugel - those I listed above and not salads)

Spicy baby red potatoes
french fried orzo (Kosher Palette)
Marinated mushrooms
popcorn cauliflower
orzo with peppers
string beans (have a couple different recipes)
Potatoes and Peppers (Bobov cookbook)
noodles and cabbage
rice (so many different kinds)
sweet potato chips
baked potato
lo mein with vegetables
sesame noodles
french fries
vegetable knishes
potato knishes
kasha varnishkas
mashed potatoes
quinoa- a new favorite, lots of options
roasted vegetables

Gefilte Fish loaf
Salmon Gefilte fish loaf
Gefilte fish jarred
Tricolor gefilte fish (forgot which cookbook but awesome)
salmon - so many recipes others have listed some
tilapia - also tons of options of what to do with it
flounder - again so many options
mock crab
tuna steaks
fish cakes

k gotta run again, sorry this is time consuming I can only do a little at a time

This is a great idea, but I think I'd take it one step up.

Open a spreadsheet in Google docs (or Word) and make the various lists. This way I can also put in the URLs for specific recipes if the recipe is off the internet, input the name of the cookbook and page number of the specific recipe if I got it out of a book and even put in the date of the last time I made the specific dish so I don't make any one thing too often.

I could even make a column of which family members refuse to eat it....

I have a huge collection of recipe books and I often sit down and flip through them and make up a whole Shabbat menu from one particular book. That's my trying and testing Shabbat. I'll then invite some people over for a meal and use what I've tried and tested on them!

If it works it goes on a list that I keep at the front of each book. If it doesn't I usually write some notes beside the recipe.
