Leftovers

How long do you keep leftovers (covered & in the fridge)? Also, how many times is it acceptable to reheat and refrigerate again?

My general rule of thumb is to keep leftovers 72 hours and only reheat once, then toss it. I have had people tell me they last much longer and can be reheated over & over.

What do you say?

  1. Leftovers can be kept for three to four days in the refrigerator. Be sure to eat them within that time. After that the the risk of food poisoning increases. If you don't think you'll be able to eat leftovers within four days, freeze them immediately.

2-3 days. About as long as you.

 I keep left overs up to a week depending on what it is. Typically they only last a day or two because I take them for lunch at work. I definitely only re-heat once.

3-4 days, depending on what it is. We reheat just the amount we're going to eat.
