Congrats Debbie on your up and coming marriage I think the butter is just fine, and I think you made the right choice with discarding your meats, better safe than sorry.

We lost 2 freezers full of food when my gd was living here. She had got ice cream once and didn't close the door and another time she turned off the switch to everything in the garage. After that I told her to eat only from the freezer in the house and leave the switches alone that she didn't know about. Both times we were gone and didn't discover it until we saw a mess in the front.

btw, those butterbells are great! butter is fresh, spreadable, and keeps without going rancid for a month!

That really sucks... But seems to me since the food was freshly purchased and in package, you could have maybe just cooked it all at once and avoided wasting it?

lurker surfing again.

during the hurricane last fall, i stayed over a friend's house to help clean up and cook things when they had no power. i noticed that the butter was just fine after 5 or 6 days left out on the counter in a butter dish.

more recently, when i visited them again, they still had a butter dish (presumably with newer butter, lol) on the counter. i asked them if they do that often, and they replied that they store butter in the fridge, but always leave a stick out in the dish for immediate use.

it certainly makes it easier to spread. and sort of tastier, much like room temp chocolate tastes better than cold chocolate. (although, there is no bad chocolate)
