Easy Fried Rice

I found this recipe at therecipecritic.  I love a good stir fry.  I also like being able to control the items that go into my dish.  One thing I usually do is make the rice the day before.  I stick it in the fridge until I'm ready for it.  It just has more of the feel of stir fry....it was a tip a friend of mine from Korea told me...the truth is there may not be real reason to do that, but in my head it makes a difference, and at night when I'm tired from working-it saves some time if the rice is already ready to go!
