So, let's say that some guy, on a Saturday afternoon, decides to make some vegetarian chili for the large group of people coming over that evening for a certain musical event. Let's say he starts cooking it in the crockpot at around 4pm.
Let's say he has it on high for the first four hours or so, then turns it to low. Then, he totally forgets to give to his guests. By the time he remembers, it's really past the point where it would have been appropriate.
He then makes a mental note to turn it off and put it in the fridge sometime before he goes to bed. However, all the cheap cabernet has made the mental note illegible, and he forgets. In the morning, he realizes that the crockpot has been on all night long. It's pretty early - around 7:30am - and he immediately turns it off.
He doesn't, however, want to put it into the refrigerator right at that moment, because it's too hot. The chili itself still looks alright and smells good, if a little burnt. He decides to write another mental note to remember to put it in the fridge after his morning cereal, before he leaves for work.
That mental note was in a different language, however, and he could not read it, and left for work without putting it in the fridge. The house was not heated for the day. Will the veggie chili still be good, being unrefrigerated for more than 24 hours (but cooking for over twelve of that time, and in a cold house the rest).
We'll find out tomorrow, when the hero of our story eats it for his lunch. Luckily, he ha a stomach of steel and absolutely no hangups about spoilage.
What a long ass day. I worked from 9-5:30, and literally have been lesson planning from 6:00-10:30 here at home.
