What to do with a ton of rice?

Boyfriend made a huge pot of plain white rice for just the 2 of us. We ate it with his pepper steak last night. Aside from freezing it for another time, does anyone have suggestions for the leftovers...something I could prepare tonight and for the next couple days?

Fried rice and arancini are two possibilities

I'd consider myself a bit of a foodie, but I've never heard of arancini. Sounds delicious! Thanks for the link!

Personally, I like it doused with soy sauce as a starch side for fish or chicken.

In my book, nothing is better with leftover rice than a lovely Fried Rice.

The ingredients are pretty much everything & anything, but I usually add scrambled eggs, diced turkey ham, diced cooked chicken, diced cooked shrimp, bean sprouts, chopped bok choi, cooked green peas + any of a variety of sauces, of course, depending on the individual recipe.

What's nice is that the leftover Fried Rice also makes great leftovers in its own right. Very easy to heat up for a nice lunch or supper.

You could use it in a soup or gumbo.

just don't throw it down the disposal - you will have MAJOR issues then.
