What would you do with the things in my fridge?

I am a complete, utter mess when it comes to planning, so I thought it would be interesting to present the contents of my fridge/pantry/potato drawer to you and see what you guys would do with it. (Note: there isn't too much that isn't in my pantry--ancho chili powder, many indian spices, polenta, rice, blah blah blah--so go for it)

1 medium bunch swiss chard
4 Avocados
Can of crab meat from Trader Joes (not bad, actually)
Fresh spanish onions
Limes
Lemons
2 containers baby bella mushrooms
Shallots
1 head boston bibb lettuce
1 large zucchini
2 Medium Artichokes
Herbs---parsley, thyme, mint (from fire escape garden), cilantro, basil
New Potatoes
Garlic (fresh, but not "green garlic" from market)
Eggs (yummy eggs from farmers market)
Bacon

In freezer--lots of sausage (lamb sausage, hot italian sausage), Roughy, ground beef, cubed beef (for stew).

Notable pantry items:
Lots of good canned plum tomatoes
Many, many beans (black, navy, black eyed peas, kidney)
Barley
Farro
Buckwheat flour

Thoughts, anyone?
