It's got use by yesterday, it's all gone brown and has a slight smell to it. The smell might be cause in pg.

I was planning on making spag Bol for the freezer for after the baby arrives. Would be eaten by me, dh and 3.5 yr old dd.

Should I?

It goes brown after a while anyway as it's been exposed to air for longer, that doesn't mean anything on its own.

I wouldn't use it if there's a smell, it's likely to be fine esp if use by was only yesterday but I'd only use it if it smelt OK - your call whether it's really a dodgy smell or just over-sensitive PG nose!

is it a meaty smell or a sour smell? If just meaty, thats oxidisation and will be fine. Anything else, chuck it

Bollocks think I'm gonna have to chuck it. Really gutted can't afford to be doing that sad
