valli little's hot chilli

Is there any better cure for driving back from Dorset in a tsunami, with no exhaust and massive traffic jams than defrosting a huge bowl of Valli Little's herby hot chilli?

Not only is it hearty, hale and warming, instantly reviving flagging spirits, but it means we can focus on sorting out a house full of piles of wet canvas, sleeping bags, boxes of assorted camping 'stuff' and some tired Ana's and Milo's. Okay, so I just defrosted it, and dumped everything in the corner to be dealt with when it stops raining...

Incidentally, here's a thrifty tip for those of you who like that sort of thing: I think freezing tends to concentrates flavours, so I've figured I can freeze even a single portion and then bulk it out with a can of tomatoes and some more chocolate, and it'll still do the three of us. Doesn't always work mind, but usually it's fine.
