cooking with free food?

hey, so i'm moving in two weeks and have been avoiding grocery shopping for the last month or so to force myself to consume all the weird food in the back of my cupboard but basically, the weird food is generally all gone by now and i don't wanna go shopping for more food that i'm jsut gonna throw out or have to give away for only two weeks but...

so today, a friend of mine who's going home for the summer just gave me a bunch of the random food she had left over and i'm quite excited to have real food and wanna make something (or several things) with it that's more than just heating it on the stove or whatever since i'm getting so sick of just having random heated up cans of food

so basically, i was hoping some of you all could help me come up with some ideas of things i could make with the stuff she gave me:

a big thing of "light brown" basmati (sp?) rice
several cans of black beans
a can of carrots
two things of hummus
a jar of red curry paste
soy sauce
a can of mixed fruit
some miso (the stuff that's like a paste)
a box of macaroni noodles
a jar of tomato/pasta sauce
(i think that's it for what she gave me aside from the candy--i know what to do with that:) )

other things i still have include--several carrots, cocoa powder, flour, sugar (brown, white, confectioners), baking powder/soda, ener-g egg replacer, most of the spices, some boulian/soup base type stuff (i have some that's a paste and some that's a powder), um, er, any other baking stuff i'm forgetting about--i'm probably forgetting some stuff but i think that's about i

any ideas of different stuff i could make (easy-ish and enough for leftovers and kinda fun is a plus!)?
