Do You Eat Leftovers?
Today is national leftover day and it got me to wondering.
How many of us eat leftovers? I looked everywhere to find a picture to go with this story then it just hit me. Why not use the refrigerator in the station for the picture? So I went back to our fridge and took this picture. As you can see it is pretty rough in there. here is food in the fridge from restaurants that are no longer is business in this town. According to the Mayo Clinc:
You should eat refrigerated leftovers within four days to reduce the risk of food poisoning. If you don't anticipate being able to eat leftovers within four days, freeze them immediately.
Really? I guess I am taking my life in my own hands by easting 7 day old leftovers. As a rule of thumb for me, if it doesn't answer me when I ask how old it is..its safe to eat.
