oh good, I'm okay then... hah
It would be interesting to know exactly what risk people take (the actual odds) when throwing something on the counter in the morning and cooking and eating it that night. I know people who do this routinely and they always say, "It's ok because I've always done it that way."
I know a group that cooks up pans of lasagna and freezes them. The night before the event, they take them out of the freezer and set them out overnight and all day next day, then cook and serve to around 400 people. They've been doing this for years
and won't listen to reason. They put signs on their "petri pans" saying "Don't dare put this in the refrigerator." You'd think folks would be dropping like flies.
