    You might also hear, 'After I wash the dishes, we are having some dessert,' which implies a future action (because it will only happen after I wash the dishes.)
    However, for the purposes of your exercise, 'will have' is the best answer.

    All best wishes,

    Petra

    In future please try to answer the questions yourself before asking for help, I don't think it is fair on other students if we do all your work for you.
