I have a LOT of leftover braised chicken and guajillo-braised beef short rib (no bones) taco filling from a catered party two weekends ago. I froze it immediately so that's not the issue; figuring out what to make with it is. Please help! [more inside]

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.

I have a huge portion of leftover chateaubriand from a top-notch steakhouse I went to last night and I'm trying to decide how to morph it into dinner tonight. I saw this thread but nothing really stood out at me so I'm looking for other ideas. I don't really want to turn it into sandwiches but I will if the collective wisdom tells me that's the best way to go. Also, the meat is a little more rare than I'd prefer so is there a way I can cook it a bit more without ruining it?
I made some delicious slow-cooker pulled pork using this chow.com recipe. I cooked the pork shoulder with the skin on, believing it to add flavour. After cooking, it came right off, along with a thick layer of fat. I've looked up pork scratching recipes, but none of them take into account that I cooked it for 8 hours beforehand. I'd like to do something useful with it, but I'm not sure what. Is it destined for my tummy or the bin?

What can I cook with 3 or more kinds of leftover meat? With the elder Fnorde boy off at college, I'm finding more and more often that dinner leaves us with a small amount of meat left over, too small for a serving, but too big to blithely throw away. What ideas can you give me for things to cook that can use multiple different cooked meats? For example, the fridge now includes about 3 ounces each of grilled beef, pork tenderloin, and chicken legs. I'd like to use them up in a single dish. I can think of making fried rice or lo mein with mixed meat, or maybe burritos or hash. Any other ideas? [more inside]

So, I have about 30 cups of brewed spiced tea (Celestial Seasonings Honey Vanilla Chai to be precise) leftover from a gathering at my house today. It was made in a percolator and is on the strong side and is sitting in a pitcher in the fridge awaiting its fate. Besides hydrating for the next few days with homemade iced chai lattes (not the worst thing in the world), are there any good uses for this?

What's your favorite recipe that can be prepared ahead of time in bulk and frozen? I'm a single parent with a 13 year old girl to cook for. I work a normal job, then spend evenings doing the Mr. Mom number, housecleaning, clothes-washing, car-repairing, homework-helping etc. etc. My time for even minimal cooking is practically nil and I order pizza or bring home Chinese much too often. Does anyone know something good that I could make several copies of on Saturday and then freeze for later? Some years back Consumer Reports did a review of frozen chicken/veggie pies, and included a recipe for their own homemade and freezable pie that beat all the commercial ones on taste, nutrition and price. That's the kind of thing I'm fishing for here. FYI, I'm a middling cook (my biscuits succeed, my puff pastry fails.) Thanks very much!
