Leftover bacon? What's that?

LOL My grandmother would buy a big box of bacon ends and pieces from the butcher. They were cheap for a big box full. She would grind the meat up and then make bacon patties so they would fit on a biscuit. Didn't take but one or two to get your fill of bacon. My brothers never let the patties go to waste during the day.

One thing is back in the day food was cooked. It wasn't sauteed, lightly browned, or delicately seared, it was cooked, boiled, broiled, or fried like they meant business. I doubt any germs were left .

Oh yeah, my DH worries putting food in the refrigerator "too soon" will raise the temp. in the fridge. 40+ years and I still fight him on it. If he's in charge of leftovers I don't eat them.

I grew up in a household where meat/chicken/etc. was defrosted on the counter...sometimes all day depending on how big the meat was. Never got sick from that habit. Leftovers went into fridge when meal was over and used within a day or two. They were reheated on the stove or in the toaster oven (my mom loved hers!).

In my household, defrosting done in the microwave or slowly in the fridge. Leftovers? If not looking like a high school science experiment they are fair game.

Only thing I am very careful about is any food containing mayonnaise that may have been sitting without refrigeration.

My DH recently had a question: does sour cream "sour" when it goes bad? Hmmm...that's one to think about.

This made me smile, and reminds me of my dad. We all would bring food to their house for gatherings. Dad would always ask me "what did you and Reets (my sister) make? He would avoid anything my other sister and SIL would make!

You dont need to be unless you are making the mayo yourself (and how many people do that? Homemade mayo contains raw egg, but commercial mayos don't. I wouldn't eat it if it had been left out on the counter for a week, but a few hours won't render it poisonous.

I don't think that they were saying you would die, but who hasn't had some unknown GI problems. Just "food" for thought.

That’s likely true for any food that has been improperly stored prior to reheating. It seems silly to me to name specific foods that should never be reheated regardless of how they were stored.

I don't let my husband help with after meal kitchen duty. He gets on my nerves in the kitchen.
