QUESTIONS: VLOG

Firstly, stop laughing at my STILL below! This is the life of a college student; there’s no need to dress up authenticity. 🙂

My second blog poses some questions to you about food! I trust you more than I trust Google… so check out the questions and hopefully I can put these thoughts to rest. (I’m convinced these stills from Vimeo are set out to put me to shame!)

  1. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. So many hidden gems throughout the post. I had no idea you were such a comedian. Great memory, as well. Hilarious.

    1) I can’t really say if frozen/thawed meats can be placed back into the freezer. I’m pretty sure they can, and be eaten at a later date. I’ve done as much and ended up tossing the pack of chicken breast because I figured salmonella had formed.

    2) How much life expectancy out of the milk that’s sold on/near expiration date? Not much. But spoiled milk can be easily detected. Right? Lol.

    3) I’ve heard the same about the can goods. Not sure of the reason given at the time. But once my daughter opened a can of applesauce and decided she didn’t want, so she placed into the fridge (in the can). Smh. She asked me why she can’t simply leave in the can til later that night and I wasn’t sure of the answer … so I tossed the can into the garbage.

    That said, I don’t think aluminum cans (drinks) hold as much threat as canned foods.

    1. Ok, I should have mentioned that I hate detecting spoiled milk because I’m not tasting it and sometimes the smell is not that obvious, especially like 1 or 2 days before it goes really bad.
      1) I always feel weird about playing the fridge/freezer exchange game. Will something really happen (that will get me sick) if I thaw and freeze meat more than like two times?
      2) See above.
      3) Ok, so can drinks are ok in the fridge overnight but canned/aluminum foods are not?

      1. Good point. Hmm. If your milk is chunky then it’s probably spoiled…

        I believe you’d have no problem detecting meat that has spoiled, it usually has a smell and/or turns brown.

        I don’t think can drinks pose a problem. Probably need to toss the can though, and spare yourself the smell of refrigerator in your drink the next day.

  2. I’m diggin the vlogs cutie!

    I like hearing your talk about random stuff. lol Our discussions are usually so serious. I really like this lighthearted side of you.

    Good questions…I wish I knew the answers…lol.

  3. 1. If I thaw out frozen meat and decide I’m not eating it today, I cook it anyway and put it in the fridge for the next day’s meal. I don’t think it’s a good idea to re-freeze it. I just asked my mama, lol she said the same thing.

    I open cans of coca cola and leave it in the can in the fridge during the morning and still drink it in the afternoon or evening. The next day? Hmm no, but that’s only because it’s gone flat by then.

    1. Ok, so the follow-up question is IF I don’t cook the meat how long can it be in the fridge for? I’ve had some uncooked wings in my fridge for weeks because I didn’t have any lemon juice to clean their skin with.
      Makes sense. Thanks for your two cents!

  4. 1. I love your ensamble “college student chic” Lol

    2. I want to know the same thing about meats too

    3. Now about the cans, I too have heard this theory but I had done some research and the verdict is:

    It’s OK!!! …as long as you don’t mind the can taste to your food. See once the can has been opened, some “chemical exchange” between the food and thr can takes place giving it that “canny” taste. Other than that it’s ok but I’d prefer to still transfer my food to a plastic container just in case 🙂

  5. This was so cute! I wouldn’t refreeze anything once it’s been dethawed in it’s entirety, but I would say you can leave it in the fridge for about a week. The milk, I use milk up to a week after the expiration date. I’d like to know the answers to the rest of the questions you asked.

    What color are you wearing on your nails? It’s really pretty!

    1. Mint Sorbet by Sally Hansen!
      According to the consensus, the can drinks in the fridge are okay if you like the taste of ‘food’ in your can and like your soda flat. And in terms of aluminum cans of other liquids/food that should be transferred to a plastic container.
