Help give me culinary inspiration

Hi all,

I went a little crazy at the grocery store on Sunday and now have a bunch of ingredients, but no real plan. I thought I would come up with one by now, but no such luck. This is what I have:

1 lb pepper steak
1 zucchini
1 small eggplant
1 bunch of leeks
1 container cremini mushrooms
a few shallots
3 white sweet potatoes
2 crowns of broccoli
red cabbage
1 ear of corn
baby carrots
2 avocados
1 mango
1 lemon

I have an assortment of rice, pasta, oils, vinegars, beans, spices, and other pantry staples.

There might be a few other things, but that's basically it. The only thing I can come up with is a stir fry, but that seems ho-hum. I'm looking for ideas that use up some or all of the ingredients - I'm drawing a blank.
