Seeking new life for Thanksgiving leftovers

I need dinner ideas for tonight! What are some delicious ideas to reformulate thanksgiving leftovers? Assume a fairly advanced level of cooking skill and a desire to transform these ingredients into something new and not too thanksgiving-y. [more inside]

Can I do anything with pig skin after slow-cooking 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?

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]

You give me a recipe and make me a Puff Daddy?

I bought a box of frozen puff pastry. I live alone. Please help me make it into delcious meals for one, preferably with leftovers I can bring for lunch the next day (so, serves 4 might be ok). Savory and sweet. (I'm already hoping an apple thing, and maybe an apples/walnuts/cheese thing) [more inside]

Well, you could just drink it

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?
