 A seafood fettuccine would be good.  What kind of seafood is in the bag?

I'm not really sure. It's a homemade bag of food. There's no label. My son's roommate's mother gave it to them and they gave it to me. There is crab meat,something that looks like squid maybe. There's mussels and scallops,I believe. And some other unidentifiable (by me) things in there,too.

 Try making a seafood stew/soup like cioppino. Usually it just calls for clams, mussels, shrimp and fish but just throw in whatever you have. :)

From the description, I think I'd make a chowder. :)

I'd do a Low Country Boil.  Big pot.  Throw all of that in there.  Plus some chunks of potato, keilbasa, and corn cobbettes.  Water to cover.  Old Bay seasoning. When all is hot and done, go outside to your picnic table.  Put a bunch of newspapers on there.  Dump the whole steaming mess out (be sure to have lots of friends around to "Ooooh!  Ahhhh!"), put out rolls of paper towels, and everyone digs in with their hands as soon as it's cool enough to handle.  Have lots of sweet tea, lemonade or cold brewskies!  Some melted drawn butter is pretty nice on the side, along with hot sauce.  And if you like, put out some plastic forks.  The fun is eating with your hands and making a mess!  And slapping a hand that grabs what you were going for!

I've got nothing.

The other ideas sound good though.

So I showed my husband the bag of seafood. He saw the what we believe is squid. He was repulsed. The seafood's destiny has taken a new direction.      Bait.         : )

laughing You could remove the squid, cut it into rounds, batter it, and fry it.  Calamari!  With some marinara sauce....yum!
