Would you feed this to your kids?

Made a massive spaghetti bolognaise last night especially so that I could give the kids the leftovers tonight for tea.

Thing is I forgot to put it in fridge or freezer and since 6pm last night has been standing in a cassserole pot with lid on the kitchen side.

Will it poison them if I give it to them? (after very thoroughly heating it up of course?)

it will be fine - was nice and chilly last night (unless you left it on a radiator that was on)

heat through thoroughly as you've said

no, it will be fine - as long as all ingredients were in date when you cooked it.

I'd give it to them (and regularly do blush)

I alwways cook double so that have extra for my dds, but it's never cool enough by the time i go to bed for it to go in the fridge, so always sits out overnight with a lid on.

No ill effects here yet...

It will be ok to eat

Agree with Laurie - It will be fine. I always leave it in the pan, covered and reheat thoroughly the next night.

Yes, I would. It will be fine as long as it's properly heated through.

Overmydeadbody Mon 15-Sep-08 13:14:04

Yes, definately. It will be fine.

yes... just be sure you get it piping hot smile

I do this all the time! Just make sure it's really hot like everyone else says!

To be on the safe side, don't merely get it hot - boil it for several minutes.

When I was growing up we didn't have a fridge for several years - mum used to keep soup for several days by boiling it thoroughly each day. [we also didn't have central heating, which probably helped grin ]

I do this all the time and I'm not dead yet!

oh yes, its absolutely fine, nobody used to put stuff in the fridge, it was always left festering away in the oven for a day or so, before re-serving, and we are all still here to tell the tale.
