I put it in foil and left in the fridge. I want to keep a habit of meal prepping. But if I cook my meals on Sunday, will it still be good for the end of the week?

if it smells fine and looks fine then take a little taste if still good then eat it. I made Lamb Saturday and my DH still ate it yesterday.

As long as you cooked it fully, there is no reason it shouldn't be fine.

Yes, I would eat it. Good job on the meal planning.

I'm on the odd side I guess. Likely wouldn't eat anything over 3 days old. Just wary I suppose. And like to go for fresh if at all possible.

Me too. I would have portioned it and froze the portions I wouldn't eat in the 1st day or 2.

Personally I would portion and freeze especially fish and shell fish.

Anything still on the bone after two days is questionable. If you take the meat off the bone, it might be good for a couple of day longer.

3 to 4 days for cooked chicken is the "official" recommendation per the USDA. Foil is a less than ideal storage medium as it's not at all air tight. I personally wouldn't eat it. Lots of people are more flexible with their standards but I've had food poisoning - not just an upset tummy but actual food poisoning. I don't mess around any more.

I batch cook and then freeze individual portions. It's nice because once I have a few different things made, I have a better variety and have some weeks where I bring a different homemade thing every day for lunch for a full week.

Agree - the freezer is an amazing invention - It is totally possible to cook lots of meals in a day or two but FREEZE them! A couple days in the fridge - okay - over that??? Questionable.
