If we have a lot of leftovers, I just package them up and freeze them (ham,turkey, cold cuts). The rest gets tossed, after a few days.

I don't make a turkey or ham,that is my Grandma's job.. lol. But, she freezes any turkey or ham that she knows she's not going to use right away. She does a zillion things with the turkey and ham.. I love her ham salad for sammiches. With the turkey, she makes everything from soup to a casserole. With the mashed taters (which there isn't any, usually), she makes potato pancakes... and there is NEVER any stuffing left.

That's why it's listed as "Unknown"! It hasn't gone bad yet, so they don't know if it's even reached it's nuclear half-life! Maybe they never do??

i guess i should be asahmed to admit it, but i keep foods well sealed in the fridge for up to 2 weeks sometimes. i have a very good nose for when things go bad, so if it smells ok, i eat it. i have never gotten food poisoning, so i guess it's has been ok. (ok, i really almost never get ashamed either..)

I don't know why fruitcake continues to get a bum rap. There are some "gourmet" fruitcakes out there that are moist and delicious.
