Menu Item Labels

If a menu item is created in the following manner:

file_name_label = gtk_menu_item_new_with_label (menu_label);
gtk_menu_append (GTK_MENU (toolbar_alpha_submenus), file_name_label);
gtk_widget_show (file_name_label);
gtk_signal_connect_object (GTK_OBJECT (file_name_label), "button_press_event", GTK_SIGNAL_FUNC (edit_this_file), (gpointer) g_strdup (path));

is there a way to extract the menu's label text string (menu_label) when the "button_press_event" signal is emitted? In this case, menu_label is the name of a file and when the user clicks on that menu I'd like to retrieve the file the user clicked on to be able to do some processing with it.
