unrefrigerated baked meat loaf. Do I dare?

Posted by dedtired (My Page) on

I left some baked meat loaf unrefrigerated for about 19 hours. My mother gave it to me and I stuck it in my purse, where it remained until about five minutes ago. The pocketbook has been in my AC'd kitchen.

Can I still eat it? I don't have anything else for dinner and I don't feel like going to the store. I mean, if Johnliu ate his beef sub with mayo after it had been in the heat for two days and lived to tell about it, can I risk this?

The inside of my bag smells like meat loaf, but not bad meat loaf.

No. In case you missed it. NO!!!!!!!

In mid December if you left your purse in the car, perhaps.

Sure you can eat it.....sure it most likely won't make you sick.....but the probability that it WILL make you sick is too large for me....
toss it....eat cereal.

Ooo yeah, Jessy, good idea, or maybe one of those dogs on the street that barks all the time. Heh, heh.

I am headed out to take a walk on the nature trail of a local college. There's a yogurt place nearby, so maybe I'll have frozen yogurt for dinner. Thanks for talking me out of the meat loaf. Don't tell my mom I let her meat loaf go bad or i will be in trouble.

Good plan. I'm not as fussy as most, but I would toss that meat loaf so fast your head would spin :-)

Once again the Cooking Forum saves another member from a very bad decision - "to eat it....or not too eat it?" Tune in tomorrow when we hear dcarch say "I can't remember if I used a beet sauce or red paint to decorate my plate! Would it hurt me if I took a little taste to find out?"

Tomorrow on "As the Forum Turns."

Ha ha. Saved by the CF. Fortunately I didn't end up in General Hospital being cared for by The Doctors. I will live to Search for Tomorrow, along with All My Children. You are my Guiding Light.
