For faster preparation:

Roast the walnuts for soup and store. Roast pumpkin with onions. Cook chicken for nachos. Boil dates and figs for pudding. Prepare custard sauce.

How to go about it: 

Place pumpkin in pan with stock and allow it to cook. Meanwhile, chop the vegetables for salsa, prepare it and set it aside. Mix the pudding and place in the oven. Prepare soup, assemble the nachos and serve. The custard sauce will need to be warmed up while serving the pudding.
