If I sort my fridge by 'eat by' date, what is the best way of dealing with food's I've cooked, or partially cooked, myself?
In my fridge there are such delights as:
- thrawed from frozen strawberries for the baby
- Seiten loaf, made in the last day
- several different types of leftovers.
...and it occurs to me I don't know how to work out the 'eat by' dates on any of the dishes we've made ourselves.
I'd like to know some good rules: excellent answers might include: "I run a bakery and this is the situation that the FDA told us we had to go by" but I'll take any information there is...
