Shrimp Fried Rice

We absolutely love fried rice. Making it with shrimp is my favorite way. To keep my fried rice still an economical dish, I buy my shrimp at Aldi’s or Super Target, or another discount or big box grocery store. I use whatever vegetables are leftover in the fridge or freezer to keep it simple and cheap. It’s great, and one of my son’s favorite dishes.
