Since you did Chinese last night, I second the suggestion of rice pudding.

How about a rice casserole? Heidi Swanson does an amazing mushroom casserole:

DIdn't have wild rice, just leftover jasmine rice, and added some browned italian sausage. All that was need to complete the dinner was a salad.

Fried rice! Fry up some ground pork, scramble some eggs, slice some green onions and fry with some light soy sauce and a little oil! I think fried rice is actually better with day-old rice!

I would finish that with a little sesame oil. Yum.

This rice pudding recipe, which I tested and think is terrific, calls for leftover rice. http://www.food52.com/recipes... I've halved the recipe with success. Try it!! ;o)
