How do I salvage these weird leftovers? (keep it vegan)
I would like to eat yesterday dinner's leftovers but they taste kind of weird. I experimented with making a vegan kale pesto (walnuts, nutritional yeast, garlic, lots of raw kale), and mixed it up with quinoa and white beans. Problem is, it tastes like a handful of cut grass, not in a good way, I think because there's so much uncooked kale in it. How do I make this edible for tonight's dinner? I don't mind cooking the kale pesto mix (in a dough?) but need to keep it vegan.

Last-minutefilter: Where can I take Mom in Denver for her 96th birthday?
It's today. I know I should have started planning earlier - I was thinking I'd just get her some flowers and a card and take her to brunch, but now I want to make it special. I still have not gotten into the habit of thinking "This may be the last time ..." but it's true. I want her to go back to her independent living facility feeling well fed, well feted, happy to be 96 and loved. [more inside]

"The" tarte au citron of my dreams...
There's heaps of tarte au citron recipes out there in the world, and I've tried a couple, but I wonder, Metafilter - what's your canonical recipe? While delicious, the texture of my filling is rarely the same as that I get in really good patisserie places, and sometimes the flavours seem a bit askew and imbalanced. Please hope me.

So I've always wanted to go on Calvin Trillin's walking tour of NYC hole-in-the-wall food in Chinatown, Little Italy, etc. But why should I pay $150 to get his recommendations, when I can get yours for free? Tell me the about your favorite Manhattan ethno-culinary delights! We're visiting in October.
