Family Friendly Hawaiian Fried Rice

You all know I enjoy cooking new things. This family friendly Hawaiian Fried Rice has me so very pleased. Now since my family is not from Hawaii, we don’t have the love of all things SPAM that the islanders do. I did adjust this recipe to cut down on the amount of salt my family would eat in one meal – low sodium SPAM and soy sauce for us. But those changes aside, my family really enjoyed this and I will keep it in regular rotation.
