    One month?????

    I have fresh garden salsa from April in the fridge!

    Had some this morning as a matter of fact. Jalapeno kills all bacteria...doesn't it?

    The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, and prejudices to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children and the children yet unborn and the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.

    ok I see you guys keep stuff a lot longer than I would .. so I must ask .. how long do you keep bread for after you buy it, if it is sitting out not in the fridge or frozen but, in the wrapper ...

    and secondly, Say that you have a 3/4 full gallon of milk in the fridge and the sell by date is today .. how long do you keep it yet?

    For the bread I always keep it wrapped and refrigerated unless it's fresh bakery bought bread.

    As for the milk, I give it the ol' nose test.

    Approximately 10 minutes. If it's not eaten by then there's something wrong with it. The last time that happened was on a half pizza that was more chilli than anything else.

    I am not a pizza keeper at all. Pizza is good hot and fresh, it is *oven* reheatable at a pinch after an hour or two if some silly person bough it while I wasn't here and that's that.

    It all depends on what is on it, I wouldn't leave out a meatlover's pizza, but your basic pepperoni or veggie pizza will be fine for a few days in terms of bacterial growth. Jalapeno doesn't kill bacteria, just slows it down and limits what kind of will grow. As far as milk and bread go, the dates are a guide, I've had milk a week past its date still good. A cold fridge and not leaving the milk out can do wonders. An hour out is a day off the shelf life.

    As long as I can run faster than the pizza can, it's fair game.

    You guys are wimps!

    When it starts to grow mold, first harvest the penicillin culture, (I know that all of you guys have a bad case of the clap and would save some $$$ by growing your own! Tell me, who luvs ya! I am always trying to look out for you guys! ) then eat the pizza. The older it is, the easier it is to digest as decomposition has already begun...

    Come on guys, it's Bachelor 101...

    Lance,

    I feel a serious answer is in order! I think the general guideline from some unknown to me health experts is that leftovers that are stored in the fridge are good for 2 days. Depending on what it is, I would go up to 3 or 4, like with potato salad maybe. But any type of meat, I always toss after 2 days. If yu open lunch meat, it is good for 1 week after you open it (the date on the package is for unopened meat) I would eat pizza the next morning if it has set over night, but that's pushing it!!!!

    Stace

    bread, until theres too much mold to scrape off or it doesn't taste good.

    Milk, my rule of thumb is 4 days after the sell by date.

    Wait, there is some type of limit on pizza?

    Seriously though... In the fridge I let it go a few days, probably 4 days, after that it starts to look scary lol. If it is sitting out probably 6 hours is the most, if it is sitting out longer than that I usually pitch it. But if it was out exactly 6 hours, it is good to go and ready to go in the fride for an extended tour of duty

    We usually don't have bread, but when we do I go for the visual mold and then feel it so see how it is. Milk, that sell by date scares the **** out of me. I usually give it the smell test, but that isn't always perfect. I usually use the milk the rest of that day for whatever I need it for and then pitch it just so I don't forget about it for the next day and get a bad present!

    I've eaten wheel bearing grease, asbestos brake dust, engine oil and probably other things that I can't think of right now. None of them killed me, so what's a little old pizza going to do?
