    How long Do Veggies Keep?

    I'm in the habit of cooking vegetables then totally forgetting them in the fridge forever. How long will cooked vegetables be OK in the fridge? TIA.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I'd say three days tops. Maybe plus or minus a day depending on how much you're in and out of the fridge.

    The fact that you're worried about how long it's been tells me that it's been too long. Better to be safe and throw them out then get sick.
    As nice as the other parks are, we must always remember that it all began at Disneyland. Disneyland should be the crown jewel in the Disney crown.

    I never keep anything "left over-like" longer than a couple days.

    I buy frozen anymore because the fresh usually get fuzzy or slimey by the time I get to them. Ewwwww.

    2 day lifespan for most leftovers over here.

    Re: How long Do Veggies Keep?

    Are you serious? 2 days! I can't eat a whole bag of veggies in 2 days. Bleh.

    Can I refreeze and reheat? I know I can only do a little at a time but I usually get those ones where you put the whole bag in and they cook. (Because they taste so much better than the regular ones and are easier to cook. No, I'm not THAT lazy, just too tired to put in much effort.)

    If I did do just a little from the bag at a time, how would I cook them? I mean, yeah, I know, but the bag says like a tsp. of water for the whole bag... How would I par that down for a 1/2 cup or cup or whatever?

    Oy, if my mom were dead she'd be rolling in her grave at these simple questions!

    Re: How long Do Veggies Keep?

    I use a steamer on top of a pan of boiling water for most of my frozen veggies. I use about half a bag usually and steam them.

    To cook them how you are already doing it, just use 1/2 to 3/4 tsp of water with 1/2 a bag of veggies.

    I love cracked black pepper on green beans, broccoli and cali to spice it up a little!

    Lemon juice and fresh, minced garlic!

    LB, there are a lot of smaller options of frozen veggies. I know when it was just my daughter and I, I would get the little boxes of pre-seasoned Green Giant or BirdsEye veggies. Those were the perfect size for one adult and one child serving with leftovers for lunch at work the next day.
