    Karen67's Note:

    This was my mother's favorite way to use up leftover white rice. It really doesn't taste like the fried rice you get at a restaurant, but it still a great meal. I typically throw in whatever vegetables I have in my kitchen, and leave out the shrimp or chicken. I also cut this down to accommodate the amount of rice I have. Cooking time does not include making rice, chicken or shrimp since this is usually made out of leftovers.

      This was really pretty and I liked the flavor. I think my rice got a little crunchy because I tried to get it "browned" before I added the other ingredients. If I make it again, I'll make sure to not over cook it in the second step. Thanks for sharing your mom's recipe Karen.

      This is a very versatile recipe--I omitted the meat and parsley and used an onion instead of scallions. You could add many other ingredients of your choice. I do think it needs more than 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, but that is my personal taste. Thanks!

      This is quite good and easy. Not too much spice or other stuff, just basic, good fried rice. Used brown rice, scallions, carrots and peas, No meat or parsley, but I added the egg - REALLY GOOD! YUMMY! :yummy:
