If it smells a bit sweet/ spicy don't eat it. We tend to bung it in a curry/ pasta by the end of the week which will be fine if properly hot.

I think the rule for cooked meat is three days max.

four days max, I worked in a deli and this is the health and safety advice.

Eggs from 18th December would be positively brand new in this house.
