If you cook something that is very hot and spicy, I suggest that you serve it with some milk to drink with the meal. Milk products help stop the burn left in your mouth from hot, spicy food. Also, you could have ice cream or something like that for dessert!

When I ate spicy Indian food, they also served a cucumber and yogurt salad with it. This was a nice contrast, and very cooling. I'll bet any milk product would go well.
Chocolate - just a small piece or two will stop the burn. I usually carry a couple of the little "kisses" with me in case of emergency (some people put hot spices in EVERY thing). Chocolate not only stops the burn in your mouth; but, it prevents heartburn and burning when it "comes out the other end" too.
