OK, it cooled down to lukewarm and sat for an hour or so then I cooked it up making sure it got very hot and ate it. All family survived with no ill effects smile

Right I've just switched it off and popped the dumplings on top. It's been cooked in a Le Creuset so it should retain a decent amount of heat for a while. I suppose I could decant it and put it in a pan in a sink of cold water but I think by the time I've cooled it down enough it will be time to heat it up again! It tastes really delicious BTW.

I would. I'd just make sure I'd cooled it quickly ie dish/pan in cold water. Then when reheating make sure it's heated up to boiling point.

I just made a casserole using the remaining chicken from yesterday's roast. It's on the hob and has been cooking away for the past 2 hours. I thought that i was getting ahead of the game and that I would just reheat it at about 6pm and pop some dumplings on top. BUT this means I will be reheating, reheated meat won't it? Is this a no-no? I'd be gutted if I had to chuck it all!!!
