I'm 10+3 and slightly paranoid about do and don't eats. Hubby made Bolognese 2 nights ago with super fresh stuff but forgot to cover and put in fridge overnight. Went in the fridge yesterday (early) am when I got up.
I'm starving and have no decent food in /can't be arsed to go to Tesco… but am slightly wary cos it was out overnight. 2 days in fridge is fine I think… If I wasn't duff upwards I wouldn't blink but should I steer clear and be safe?

Thoughts, before I eat my own arm instead?

I woud eat it. Just make sure you get it piping hot.

If it was pretty cool in the kitchen I would, not if the heating was on. Piping hot.

Or get the Dominoes Pizza wink

I'd eat it. You could always heat till piping hot if very paranoid

Yep. Eat it. Doesn't need to be piping hot. My DH eats it cold from the fridge.

Thanks ladies
Foof LOL - that's not helping the lard arse I'm developing here ;-)

*bustles off to have vaguely healthy tea….

I'm sure it will be fine smile

My theory is if there's no obvious mould, just heat it up until boiling!

Piping hot yes, it'd be gone already.

I would eat it.

I probably would.

Question though about the 'piping hot' (probably a stupid one). Do you have to eat it whilst it is piping hot, or can you make it piping hot, let it cool and then eat it...??

Heat it to a boil (with extra water if necessary) for a few minutes, then enjoy smile

I'd eat it without hesitation, and would definitely NOT assume that Domino's Pizza was safer! That will have been kept warm-ish during transit to your house which is the worst possible set-up from a food health/hygiene point of view.

I added fresh chillies, cooked it for 20 mins (surely nothing bad would survive that!?) while I cooked some rice and it was delish
thanks ladies x

Eat it. Or bring it to me in Bedford so I can eat it. Mmmmm bolognaise....

Glad you went for it (it'd have been a shame to waste good home cooking :-)

I think whenever your suspect about something, just start heating it up, you can totally smell if its went off (it's rank - you can't miss it) and if it smells okay, then it's okay to eat.
