Chicken slime

I did something yesterday most guys don't. I actually threw out a chicken breast because it didn't smell right. Ok, I didn't actually throw it out yet. And though it smelled funny that was not the only test I gave it.

I had the chicken breast thawing out since last Sunday. I ate some on Monday and Thursday but had the one breast left. This weekend I picked up some green peppers, garlic, and onion to toss around in the wok with the last piece of chicken. I felt more like cheeseburger yesterday and didn't think twice of the chicken going bad.

After some exercise, I bounded into the kitchen thinking of the stir fry and looking forward to it. That changed when I opened the plastic container. The smell was sour. I frowned and took another whiff thinking it may not be bad and I could work with it. Sure let's give it a shot, even though it looks dried out. I picked it up and changed my mind. There was a bit of slime on it. I can work with chicken that may smell a tad funny but I don't do slime.

I put it back in the container and tossed it back in the refrigerator like any guy would do. What am I suppose to do? Toss it in the garbage? The garbage does not need to be emptied and I don't want it to stink up the house. Toss the container? It is not a disposable container. It is one I like to use so that ain't happening. Hot water and soap will take out the slime.

Maybe I should have tossed it into a disposable container and dumped it on the way out to the garage this morning. Best of plans thought of 2 hours too late.

But give me credit for not eating the chicken, ok?

I give you credit for not eating the chicken. You probably should have cooked it when you cooked the other two. You could still have made stir fry with it.
I'm guessing the container will sit for a few days and then you will have slimy meat cake.

I think you should eat it. Just because I think this blog needs a funny puke story.

Actually can't you like kill shit with the Microwave or something?

I think honestly you are not supposed to leave food in the fridge for more than a day or so. Not a week for sure.

If it doesn't kill you it'll make you stronger.
