@RunningGal:  I like to do curries, soups or stir fry if I have a ton of veggies.  You could do a veggie lasagna too.

I would do a curry – all of that except celery is great for curries (and really, you can put celery in anything).

Also, whatever you don’t use, you can freeze to make vegetable stock when you come home (or make the stock today if you don’t use the veggies for supper).

If you’re feeling ambitious I would make two soups and freeze them: 

tomato based lentil soup (or stew if you don’t have broth) with onion, pepper, zucchini, celery

broccoli-cheese soup: saute onion and tarragon, add all your green veggies (spinach, kale, broccoli) add chicken broth and simmer unil tender.  Blend it up – you can either cook it right away in french onion soup bowls with cheddar cheese on top or freeze it for future.

I would just freeze the greens for future use in soups/omelettes, and chop the celery for soups also. Then maybe do a pasta with roasted red pepper, broccoli and zucchini with white beans? you could put spinach in there too

I am all about freezing stuff so I would freeze them for future meals or mix a lot of that in with pasta.
