I always forget about freezing it, thanks

After the fact . . . but I ate Meaty Beany Chili (from IDI) for lunch today. After thinking about it, this chili has been in my fridge for 6 or 7 days. Am I going to deeply regret my lunch later today? (Smelled a touch sour, but smelled and tasted fine after I heated it up.)

If it smelled sour, I probably wouldn't have eaten it, but I cook big batches of beans and keep them for a week in the frig all the time. It may depend on frig temperature?

How many times do you think you should heat a rice dish up?

I often make too much (basically just rice with veg and some sort of sauce). I heat it up the next day. Then when I have something left, like tonight, I never know if I should save it for yet another day after that. Maybe all the nutrients have been cooked out entirely then anyway. I know it will probably taste fine heated up for another day. How many times would you heat up a rice dish?

I would just heat up the amount you're going to eat that night, you shouldn't really be reheating any kind of food more than twice.

You mean make once and reheat once or make once and reheat twice?

It's always hard to know exactly how much to heat up since I'm cooking for four and I don't want to end up not having enough, so I usually end up with some.

Make once, reheat once. I would be especially wary of rice, since it can go bad and cause food poisoning much more quickly than most foods. But I am also more cautious than a lot of people here.

I'm really cautious too - I had 2 bouts of food poisoning last year and they were awful, so now I figure I'd rather throw food out than risk a day of the chills and constant vomiting.

Definitely don't reheat anything more than once. I chucked a delicious soup today because I reheated too much, but hey better than puking all day.

That's interesting. I have a friend who used to work in a restaurant where they said they kept the soup for a week and just reheated it every day. I wonder how many people got sick of that. Or maybe you kill all the bugs when you heat it through well, but it still can't be good.

And i agree on rice being a food that goes off quickly. Just cooked rice in the fridge I can't keep too long, maybe 2 days tops. That's why I thought that reheating it might kill off a few things that otherwise would have turned the rice bad in the fridge. But it's just not worth to risk food poisning I agree!

I think what happens when you reheat the soup well over and over is you create the perfect environment for bacterial growth. I only reheat something once, although I can sympathize with your situation, Solkiki.

Long ago I worked in a restaurant where the soup of the day was kept heated all day but the leftovers went home with some lucky employee that night. I was very popular with my cash-starved friends when it was my turn to take home a giant jar of (made from scratch) cream of broccoli or tomato vegetable.

I know a lot of people are leery about using microwaves. But I generally use mine just to reheat food. That way it's super easy to heat what you estimate is needed, and then quickly heat more if necessary. And again, if food is spoiling in the frig in 2 days, check to see if you need to lower its thermostat - it should be below 40 F., and best if just above freezing. Also throw rice and beans in the freezer in serving size amounts if you're worried you might not eat them quickly enough!

In case anyone is wondering, don't eat cooked broccoli that's been in your fridge for 11 days. I spit it out as soon as I bit into it, but…blargh.

Eew lol. I find broccoli doesn't heat up well at all, I never reheat it. After 11 days I would probably burn it with a torch

It is now stinking up my garbage can. I can't believe that I put it in my mouth. This is what happens when you are cheap and cannot stand to waste food.

Luckily, I did not get sick.

I made the soymilk less than 48 hours ago and it already has that thicky sort of look to it! I was so pissed about the waste that I made a glass of chocolate milk and drank a glass anyway. Farewell dear PPK, it's been nice knowing you.

risk food poisning I agree!

I keep a pot of soup in the fridge for a week, but we heat up one bowl at a time as we want to eat it. Maybe the restaurant was doing something like that. Besides sounding like a blatant food safety violation, I think any veggies in the soup would be cooked to sad limp death from that much reheating.

On a similar note, I reheated some soup yesterday from the weekend, and added some other veg to it, then couldn't finish all the soup so returned it to the original container, which I hadn't rinsed in the meantime. Then I heated up those leftovers for lunch the next day (today). I can't say for definite that it's caused problems but I've definitely had a bit of intestinal discomfort and more trips to the lav than is usual or comfortable this evening.

Corn tortillas that expired in January 2014. No clue when I bought them, but they have been in the refrigerator.

I wouldn't eat them for a few reasons. I always wonder about these sort of products that seem to last forever. I've never found any tortilla's that are actually really vegan. Tortilla's are super easy to make yourself and they're so much nicer when they're fresh. It's relatively cheap and not worth risking getting sick over.

But to answer your question on whether it's still good, I always look at things very closely to see if there are any signs like dots of mold, funny smells, maybe taste a little bit and see how I feel. Since it's a product you can save for so long a few months later probably won't matter much.

How long can you keep raw nut butters for, a few weeks on the shelf? Do you think you can keep it longer in the fridge or would that affect the nut butters in a negative way somehow, apart from not being able to spread it out so much I mean. And what would the first signs be of it going off?

In my experience, raw nut butters last at least a few months on the shelf and almost indefinitely in the fridge. When they go off, it's usually because the oil goes rancid and you'll notice a bitter taste (it's not dangerous to taste a small portion of rancid fat, just tastes nasty). They could also develop surface mold or other visible sings of going bad, but I've never had that happen. Always use a clean spoon or knife when you scoop from the jar.
