The boiled dinner I"m making right now with the picnic pork shoulder, carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and cabbage. It wont be done until close to 11pm. It will take a few hours at least!! to cool down enough to put it in the refrigerator and I'll have to go to the bed at that point. I'm thinking this is ok to leave out over night. the baked beans should be done in an hour hopefully - or I should say I'm going to give up in an hour and hopefully let it cool for an hour and than place in refrigerator.
