I came home from doing a MASSIVE food shop earlier to find a totally dead fridge. After some frantic phone calls I have managed to borrow a small fridge and my meat etc. is now in there. However I picked the shopping up at 10 and didn't get it into the fridge until 12.45, so nearly 3 hours. It's all for a party on Sat - can I still feed the chicken, smoked salmon etc. to my friends or will I poison them?????
It wil be totally fine. It's bloody cold out. It may have been a different matter in the mid summer, but provided you didn't leave it resting on the top of a radiator whilst you got the temporary fridge sorted there's no problem!
Thanks so much! The chicken is going into a pie which I was going to make today then keep in the fridge until Saturday. The smoked salmon is being made into a dip but I won't do that until the day. Think that'll be OK?
