What to make??


Since moving in together this January, Mirza's mom has been giving us tons of food. She's so generous. Whenever she goes to the market, she'll buy extra for us, wash it, and it's ready to go! But with my own shopping already, I feel like we have tons of food, but I'm feeling a bit uncreative.
So, without further ado, here is pretty much everything, give or take a few random items.

What should we make???

Red potatoes are really good quartered and pan cooked in evoo w chopped onion and some garlic added later done w a dash of cayenne and red wine vinegar. A good side to go w almost anything.

this recipe looks good and uses several of your ingredients on hand (chickpeas, lemon, cilantro, mint, etc): http://kalynskitchen.blogspot.com/2008/10/indian-spiced-chickpea-garbanzo-salad.html
