Mid-Week Munchies- Simple Fried Rice

Like most of us toward the middle of the week, Hubby and I were feeling a little lazy about cooking dinner.  We wanted something healthy, we didn't want to spend money on takeout and we didn't want to spend hours in the kitchen.  So, as a solution to this dilemma, Hubby decided to make fried rice with the ingredients we had left over in our pantry and it turned out to be delicious!
