I have a working prototype of a package to generate residuals
following -mlogit- estimation:

net from
net d simchoiceres
net install simchoiceres

With that, you can generate residuals for your households that reflect
the choice made by the household (or whatever your observation is).
Then you can modify the conditions (presumably, the variables that
entered -mlogit-), add those residuals to the fitted values of the
linear predictor (fixed effect utility term) from -mlogit-, and choose
the maximum value.
