My husband hates this about me. I can't stand to keep food in the fridge for longer than 1 day..maybe 2 ...depends on the hour I cooked it the days before...I know I'm weird...no need to remind me! :o)
I google those Shelf Life website of foods, but I'm convinced they have no clue truly about food.
I am a lot better than I was BH (before hubby) about this while issue though. He grew up in a family where his mom would toss everything in a pot at the end of the week and make soup out of it. I laugh and tell her all the time that I would have starved growing up in her house. My FIL loves me though b/c I send all leftover past 2 days to his house. I swear they have stomachs of steal over there...I cringe when I think of the past shelf life of foods they eat. You know how things say...good for _____ days when opened? Well I will chunk it on the day before...I don't know...I just panic! I don't want my family sick from contaminated foods!
SO get this...I totally went against all my shelf life rules...yesterday the kids all lost the bet about the "click to vote" contest. 1 kid said I would be at 100...another kid said I would not get any votes (gee thanks) and the other child said I would get 50 votes...ok they were all wrong..I think I got about 20 votes, which means they all lost...and so the piece of Black Forest Cheesecake sat there.
UNTIL TODAY...I ate it just a few mins ago and it was sooo good. I will force myself not to think about the fact that I made it Wednesday and I that I will be ok. My FIL told me to send what was left to his house on Monday...he'd polish it off! ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, but too late!
Wasn't a huge fan of Couples Retreat....neither was hubby...had only 1 funny scene...I was really disappointed since we are huge Vince Vaughn fans...
