When you buy fresh meat or poultry (ground, etc.), when do you cook them? Do you use them by the "sell by" date if there''s no "use by" date listed on the package or do you think it''s safe to cook it a few days later than the "sell by" date? I am so paranoid about keeping uncooked meat or poultry, that I''m sure I waste food by throwing it out too early. Just wondering what you do.
