And the answer is: ghetto fried rice is leftover rice to which one adds soy sauce and either cut up hot dogs or balogna, without any vegetables. Sounds yuck to me.

My darling daughter has entered the wonderful world of publishing and has moved to the City to work for one of the big publishing houses there.

oh, i am sorry to hear that...or does she have a trust fund to live off? publishing doesn't really pay enough to live in NY--its a fine choice for people like the late Jacky O, she didn't need the money (so of course, they paid her alot ) but most publishing jobs pay just enough to keep you from starving!(but not enough to both eat well and live well).
Good luck to her!

It's good to know now never to ask for ghetto fried rice.

Cap': Your reply was both comical and gross.

Sounds like what we used to do with beans...cut up hot dogs and cook em with the beans for supper. Feeds a family for next to nothing.
