Now that you’ve gobbled a gobbler…

By now, you’ve probably gorged yourself on carbohydrate-laden goodies from your Thanksgiving feast and you decide to check Dine 909 just before the food coma sets in (you wonderful reader, you!). You’re in luck, because we have a few more tips for you holiday foodies.

Be sure to store your leftovers within two hours of cooking. Sure, that post-meal nap sounds nice right about now, but postponing putting away your carefully-planned spread could mean food poisoning later on as bacteria colonize your neglected, cooling turkey and side dishes.

Okay, so I see you’ve got it all put away and are about to stumble to the couch for that well-deserved postprandial snooze; just remember to eat those leftovers within 3-4 days, or freeze them. When reheating, be sure to do it thoroughly to a temperature
of 165 F or until hot and steaming.

Now you can rest with the knowledge of proper holiday food care.
