What to do with leftover duck?

The boyfriend and I got a whole, 5-pound duck from the farmer's market on Sunday and roasted it. Delicious ... but there is a lot left. What are some entrees I can make with carved-up/shredded bits of leftover duck meat? We already made duck quesadillas, which were just eh. The lighter the better - it's too balmy here in Austin, Texas for any hearty stews or gumbos.
Thai curry! Make red curry with coconut milk, add shredded or chopped duck, maybe some sweet potato chunks, and some pineapple. Maybe a few Thai eggplants -- deeeeeelicious.
HASH, absolutely kattyeys
I do a asian stir fry too, Also made a light broth with some simple scallions and mushrooms and the duck.
It is also good in a casserole made with some butternut squash, onion and some potato, some cream and veggies.
Here's a thread where someone was looking for topping for duck confit sliders. I thought it sounded so cool! Even if not confit, just duck. I've looked at the grocery and there are some small rolls that could be used since I don't know where one would find small buns.
