Every week, without fail, it seems like my husband and I argue about the state of food in our fridge. After two days, I'm pretty convinced that everything has gone bad, while he'll eat pizza from 1982. I like to play it conservatively when it comes to food possibly being past its prime, but with the state of the economy and a little one in the house, I can't constantly be tossing perfectly good food if it really IS okay to eat.
So TELL ME, community ... in your opinion, what is the shelf life of the following food items:
- Meatloaf (cooked)?
- Chicken (cooked)?
- Pasta (cooked)?
- Vegetables (cooked & uncooked)?
