How Long to Keep Stored Foods
I’ve eaten bad meat. That I made bad, apparently. I eagerly accepted the nieces’ leftover Wahoo Fish Taco beef teriyaki bowl. Purchased on New Year’s Eve (12/31). I left it in my refrigerator in its original take-out styrofoam container. Using the FIFO (first-in, first-out) inventory method of consumption, I just got to snacking on it for dinner Saturday (1/05). Hm, six days, no problem!! There was no odd smell, so that smell didn’t turn up anything fishy (har har).
*Urgh* But something is slightly amiss. I ignored that “not so fresh” feeling and ate some more for an after-dinner snack. *Blurgh*.
Today I investigated this article that talks about how long food should be stored. My buddy Sarah guessed my cooked steak meat would be good for 5 days. Oops! It’s really supposedly only good for three to four days?! Dang.
