How long do things keep?

hotsauce28 | | Apr 5, 2008 10:31 AM

I normally don't prepare food in advance but with a busier schedule, I'd like to try doing most of my cooking on a Sunday for the rest of the week. The problem I'm having is I find that the chicken/beef/pork on a 2nd or 3rd day is pretty dry.

If i marinade everything in advance, is it still okay in the fridge (not the freezer) after 3 or 4 days? What is the general rule of thumb when it comes to keeping food (meat/poultry/fish).

Thanks!
