We ordered way too much last night and stupidly, I left it all out from 8 pm until I got up about 8 am. I'm sure the noodles are fine but the chicken....? My head says I'd BU to eat it but my heart stomach says IT'S FINE!

I would bin it.

Depends what your system is like, DS would be fine, DD would be sick.
I'd be fine, OH would be sick. smile

Do it, i forget to put it in fridge all the time

MrsSpagBol Sun 21-Apr-13 11:47:47

Don't eat anything with rice.

I do it all the time. I justify it with the argument that any resulting food poising would be good for weight loss so win win!

I'm just reheating left over Chinese for ds but it was in the fridge.

Was it air tight? Hmm I probably wouldn't tbh.

Depends on your kitchen. Mine is colder than my fridge!

I allways forget to put it in the fridge & eat it the next day. Just make sure it's very hot smile

Would eat it - enjoy!

DoYonisHangLow Sun 21-Apr-13 12:01:04

Oh god yes, yummy. Although I do have an iron stomach, if I had a weaker constitution I'd be more wary, obv.

Loulybelle Sun 21-Apr-13 12:01:41

Nope, eat it and enjoy.

BrianButterfield Sun 21-Apr-13 12:01:57

I'd eat anything except rice. Really don't eat anything with rice in!

WandaDoff Sun 21-Apr-13 12:02:35

I would, but I have a cast iron stomach.

Loulybelle Sun 21-Apr-13 12:02:43

I do it all the time with the left overs, my tummy handles it pretty well.

A friend of mine got salmonella after eating left over chinese that hadn't been refrigerated. He was in hospital for 3 weeks and nearly died.

AmberLeaf Sun 21-Apr-13 12:04:43

I would.

Takes a lot to upset my cast iron stomach!

Nuke it in the microwave.

Trillz Sun 21-Apr-13 12:05:36

I would eat it. How warm do you think your kitchen was overnight?

crashdoll Sun 21-Apr-13 12:09:45

Kitchen is generally pretty cold. I ate the noodles and a bit of the chicken. It tasted good and hopefully I'll live to tell the tale.

I do this all the time (not with chinese simply because we dont eat out much, but have done in the past) and I have a stomach of steel.

Do it!

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Sun 21-Apr-13 12:16:44

YAPBU, but that wouldn't stop ME eating it. I bloody love Chinese!

Yonihadtoask Sun 21-Apr-13 12:20:36

I would eat it - but not the rice.

Heat up so it is piping hot.

But do bin the rice - or any rice dish - rice can grow spores which can't then be destroyed by cooking - and will give you the poorlies. grin

enjoy.

Rice is usually fine too, I think lots of people are scared because it's a not a staple food in the UK.
