Reminder to self: leftovers left overly long in the fridge DO INDEED GO BAD no matter how much I want them not to. I relearned this lesson today after eating turkey from Thanksgiving Day that I loved when it was freshly baked, and loved eating cold out of the refrigerator for many days afterwards. But today the turkey didn’t love me back.
After a bought of stomach cramps and a hurried trip to the bathroom I called Sylvia at her office downtown. “You know that turkey under the foil in the refrigerator?” I asked her. “Is it still good to eat?”
“Oh, no!” She quickly answered. “Don’t you even touch that!”
Well… that explained the gut aches and bathroom visits that defined most of the rest of my day. Darn it.
