Refrigerating hot food
Okay, Here it is, 9:30 EDT and I just took a big casserole out of the oven. It is rip-roaring hot. I plan to be under the covers by 10:30 and that casserole is still going to be hot. So, what to do? Leave it out all night? Refrigerate it anyway?
And what about baked goods? What if you get the urge to bake a cake at 10 pm, then want to go to bed right after it comes out of the oven? I realize you don't refrigerate cake, but if it was cool I would cover it, but I can't if it is still warm. I have a feeling the solution is plan ahead, but that doesn't always happen in my world.
Sooo -- wdyd?
