    You know, before refrudgerators were commonly in homes, oh 40 to 50 years ago, all left overs were left on the counter (or the pantry) and eaten on for days.

    Of course, that was before perservatives, allergies, sinuses, food allergies, and other things that rule our lives today. So, could your grandmother eat it and not get sick? - Likely. Could you eat it without getting sick? - Likely not. Could someone in an undeveloped country eat it and not get sick? - Most definately (thier immunities are much stronger than ours).

        heheh, not me, I won't eat it! If I have to think about it, it's probably not worth the risk. LOL

        Did that once, sat there and deliberated over it, then thought of the consequences...
        PS: the consequences won me over!

          I wouldn't eat it, especially since the meat sat out all night.

            You have a good point.

            Many have theorized that having to eat the same mutton stew 3 days in a row in August heat may have been what drove whoever killed Lizzie Borden's father and step-mother to do the deed.

              My "motto" on this type of thing is "don't risk it". You can always buy/make more soup. Wasting a bit of money is much better than getting sick.


              The sun is far away... It goes in circles.
              Someone dies.. Someone lives. In pain.
              It is burning, into the thin air;
              Of the nature, of a culture..
              On the dark side..
              Under the moon..
              the wolves gather..

                Years ago I worked with an ex-soldier from Greenfield, Ind. US Army Jungle Warfare Unit. He said when they trained in Panama they ate beef that had been sitting in the jungle heat for a week. He said beef putred beef will not kill you, IF you can eat it & keep it down you can live on it. But i'll pass.
