It has been in my fridge for 2 days and don't know what to do with so I was thinking of freezing it

  • You can but it'll be kind of gross. You'd be better off making something with them and freezing that (mix with cooked hambuger & spaghetti sauce - like spaghetti pie kind of, or a number of other things).

  • It will end up mushy. You can freeze it if it isn't completely cooked.

  • It will be mushier than if you hadn't frozen it, but I doubt you'll find it inedible.

  • You can freeze it and later use it in soup.
