WHEN IN DOUBT…THROW IT OUT!!!

Standard
The reports were right today GAS here was raised to 2.99 a gallon.!

Plenty of people are NOT HAPPY about it either! That’s over 30
cents in less than two weeks!!! Well I sure hope it tends to
plateau now and stay there!  Wishful thinking maybe but I can
dream!! Thinking Summer will be expensive again this year if this keeps
up.
######################################################
Spent some of my day doing laundry and  trying to get my fridge cleaned out.
Holy cow it had been a while too. Since we don’t keep a great
deal in the fridge it is an easy job. The hard part is going through
the freezer and the condiments that line the doors. WOW..
some were way beyond time to get rid of them. I swore I
wouldn’t do that and then I go and do it again!!
 

I can’t afford to be sick over my stupidity! I have eaten
 things that I surely shouldn’t have lots of times and
paid the price! I ate them and I KNEW BETTER!
"Well maybe this time will be okay"…. NO WAY..DON"T DO IT!! 
NEW MOTTO…. WHEN IN DOUBT– THROW IT OUT!
 
I did some google research and found this…       
 
"Q:How long can you safely keep leftovers in the refrigerator?
A:
According to the Department of Agriculture, you should eat refrigerated leftovers within three to four days. If you don’t anticipate being able to eat them within this period of time, freeze them immediately.
To help ensure the safety of leftovers, refrigerate perishable foods quickly and don’t let them sit for longer than two hours at room temperature or for longer than one hour if the room temperature is above 90 F (32 C). Perishable foods include meat, poultry, fish, eggs, side dishes and casseroles.
Before eating leftovers, reheat them thoroughly. Reheat leftover sauces, soups and gravies to boiling. If you’re using the oven to reheat leftovers, set the temperature to no lower than 325 F (163 C) to ensure they’re reheated quickly. Because bacteria multiply between temperatures of 40 F (4 C) and 140 F (60 C), reheating in slow cookers or chafing dishes isn’t recommended.
 
Uncooked foods, such as cold salads or sandwiches, should also be eaten or refrigerated promptly. There aren’t any guidelines for how long you can safely keep uncooked foods. But their quality usually deteriorates more quickly than cooked foods.

Well I like my food HOT HOT..and well done so I have no problem there, but sometimes I keep things way over what they should be kept in there! I know now that if I open that lunchmeat I better eat it in 4 days or toss it!   ANYONE who has gotten food poisioning knows what I am talking about…… Boy are you sick!!  

ANYWAY got the chores done just in time to go another round at the lawn mowing if it warms up some.
UP NORTH FROST AND FREEZE warnings.  Glad we are not in that area those poor people
are still covering up things to keep what they have from being killed off.  WEIRD for
this time of year for sure.
 
HOPE YOU ALL——

  1. Wow, that’s quite the jump in price…even more then ours…still about forty cents less than that here. Funny you should mention that about throwing things out. My mom got pretty sick recently on some immitation crab we kept too long…not fun. We have miserable weather that’s going on and on and on with chances of snow in the evenings even…can you believe that?

  2. thanks for the reminder of the food stuffs it is always good to stop and think love your new profile picture The gas prices are scary and yes we are one of the lucky ones who are running out at night to cover everything (oh well at least we got the stuff to cover )lolHave a great day

  3. I think we’ve all been there a time or two. Mine frig needs a good cleaning now, thanks for the reminder, lol. Why in the world did they close those refineries. Just so they could jack up the prices. I believer that and nothing they can claim will make me believe any different. Greedy jerks.

  4. Yeah, it’s easy for stuff to get pushed to the back of the fridge and forgotten. I try to keep on top of it, but there’s always something that slips by! Our leftovers usually do get eaten, now that hubby is not working, so that is good. But if something goes more than a few days, I throw it out (even tho Hubby screams that it’s OK!).

  5. I have found things that were pushed to the back of the fridge that should have been thrown out weeks ago. I’m like you, If the food I’m eating is suppose to be hot I want it HOT. I have sent things back when we’ve gone out to eat just for that reason. I had a hard time when the kids left home learning how to cook for just 2 people again so because of that I had lots of leftovers. I finally figured it out though and now I wish you could buy buns in packs of 2 or 4 instead of 8 lol.Well have yourself a good day.HugsSherry

  6. I have an Excavation Day every few moinths. I dread it but the fridge has to survive if I am to survive. 🙂

  7. Oh yeah, I know what you’re talking about here…Jim has pulled things out of the freezer (that was in there way too long) and asks is it cake or steak? The gas went up from $2.66 to $2.69 this morning. And we’ve had frost almost every morning since we got back up here. Your right…crazy weather!

  8. Our gas is $2.69 here right now. Tomorrow it may be higher. I saw all prices as we were traveling. I need to clean my fridge big time.Hugs to you and mom.
