Food Tip: Shelf Life in the Refrigerator & Freezer

Rambling Thoughts, Tips, Food, Shelf Life, Safety
Now, I know there is a guessing game when we open our frigs or freezers and see something that has been in there a long time and we wonder if it is still good.  Well, I found a great list of the shelf life for food in both refrigeration and freezer.

Salads (tuna, pasta, egg, ham, chicken): last 3 - 5 days in refrigerator....do not freeze

Hot dogs: lasts 1 week (if opened) or 2 weeks (unopened) in refrigerator.....lasts 1-2 months in freezer

Deli meat:  lasts 3-5 days (opened or deli sliced) or 2 weeks (unopened) in refrigerator....lasts 1-2 months in freezer

Bacon:  last 7 days in refrigerator....last 1 month in freezer

Sausage (any kind):  lasts 1-2 day in refrigeration....last 1-2 months in freezer

Ground Meat: lasts 1-2 days in refrigeration....lasts 3-4 months in freezer

Steaks: lasts 3-5 days in refrigeration....lasts 6-12 months in freezer

Chops: lasts 3-5 days in refrigeration....lasts 4-6 months in freezer

Roasts: last 3-5 days in refrigeration...lasts 4- 12 months in freezer

Fresh Poultry (whole): lasts 1-2 days in refrigeration...lasts 1 year in freezer

Fresh Poultry (pieces): lasts 1-2 days in refrigeration....last 9 months in freezer

Soups & Stews: lasts 3-4 days in refrigeration...last 2-3 months in freezer

Thank you, Food Safety!!!

Priority Chef Precision Knife Sharpener

Rambling Thoughts, Priority Chef, Video, Review, Knife Sharpener
So, a little while ago, I was contacted by Priority Chef to try their knife sharpener for free in exchange for my thoughts.

It is a 2 step knife sharpener with a non-slip base.   You can check it out here.

So, does it actually work?  Is is durable?  Safe to use?  Does it sharpen the knife?  Click here to check out my video review.
