Unhappy Leftover white rice

I always seem to have leftover white rice. Does anyone have an ideas how I can use this another way other than mixing it in the dog's food? lol

I make chinese rice. Or mix with vegetables, or cooked leftover meat, well chopped, one egg, salt, pepper, garlic, herbs and make little fritters.
Or simply "refresh it" with a little water or broth, and have with a different kind of meat and vegetables.

I got this idea from Jim Chee's cookbook. He said he had it all the time as a child. I love it!

Just drizzle a little veg oil (not olive oil - the flavor is too pronounced) over cold rice. Mix. Sprinkle on a little soy sauce. Mix. Add chopped scallions, optional. Good stuff!

Also, here are a lot of good ideas in an earlier thread What to do with a ton of rice?

To one cup of rice add 6 eggs or so several teaspoons of finely diced fresh parsley, 1/2 to 3/4 cup of parmesan cheese and a few shakes of garlic powder add a little salt and pepper and bake til top is a light gold color..This is my family's favorite torta for any party or birthday

Fried rice comes to mind. Or add some raisins, some eggs mix well. Hit the frying pan add some oil and fry the mixture on one side first, then using a lid flip it over fry on the other side, Yum.

Milk and rice heated up in the microwave makes a nice breakfast cereal, especially if you add some brown sugar, fruit, or other things to your liking.

I also make up some gravy, add some corn, and place on top of the warmed up rice in a bowl and maybe even add some leftover meat. You pay big bucks for the same thing from restaurants like KFC.

Also Rice Pudding comes to mind.
