OS X Recent Items

OS X has the following file that holds information about recent items  
(applications and files)  com.apple.recentitem.plist

An example taken from that .plist file is the following. It refers to  
an image, and what I guess is the path to the icon to that file and  
the pathway to the file itself. At least I hope that is what they are.

If my guess above is correct, can anyone tell me how to convert them  
into text I can use? If they are paths, into a useable path to the file?
