For the chicken/ chickpea curry:
Soak a mug of chickpeas overnight and rinse as often as you can in between-I soaked mine the previous afternoon.
Boil as per instructions on packet-I boil rapidly for about 10 mins then cook until soft.
I used 2 chicken legs-stripped off the meat and chopped it up into pieces approx 1.5 cm so it goes a long way.
one chicken stock cube
2 or 3 onions chopped
one tin chopped toms
2 teasponns garam masala
one2 teaspoons hot curry powder
half a teaspoon chilli powder
one jar value curry sauce(cos I got it for 5p in Asda/tesco)or an exta tin of toms and an extra spoon of curry powder.
I wash out the tins and jar with about half tin of hot water to get every little bit from them-transfering from one to another(Im just tight)
Lightly fry onion, add the chopped cooked chicken and spices. Lightly fry. Chuck in everything else and cook for about half an hour to develop the flavours-make sure its runny enough-may need a little more water-just add half a can at a time
That is what I used "this" time but it varies as I'm geenrally a "chuck it in" type of cook!

I have a super duper amazing auntie!
i havent been to a shop since the 31st July, and today whilst i was decorating my aunt popped in, and helped herself to a cup of tea while i was wallpapering, because i have been eating out of the freezer and cupboards there is literally, milk, butter, cheese, eggs, coke, beer, pickles and what ever is defrosting for dinner that night in the fridge, my auntie bless her said to me ' you're fridge is empty - u need to eat more' and i told her i was eating fine, just using up what was in my freezer, we carried on our catch up and she left, then an hour later she came back with bags of food, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, courgettes, cauli, broccoli, strawbs, grapes, apples, oranges, bread, ham, turkey, celery, carrots, potatoes, onions, spring onions, cabbage for the fridge and salmon and chicken fillets for the freezer and said to me ' not on my watch is my neice going to be living on frozen veggies with her dinners' and she wouldnt let me pay her back, she said most of it came from the garden so i feel a little less guilty - but now i need some ideas on how to use up so much healthy stuff...
i have a delicate stomach in that i suffer with IBS so spicy food and rich foods are a little painful. but any ideas or help ?? (i have the store cupboard staples such as pasta, rice, couscous, noodles etc)

Someone may have already suggested this, but it may be worth contacting customer services? I had the same problem with some Mr T vouchers and a very helpful chap said although he couldn't re issue the vouchers, he could put the points back on my account.
