Another Experiment

Today's experiment is totally different, but also food/beverage related. The other day we had salmon and potatoes for dinner. After dinner, I made up a container of leftovers for work, and put all the remainder back into the casserole dish. The work leftovers made it into the fridge; the rest didn't. It was left out for an unspecified length of time. But I couldn't bear to throw it away! I mean, it's salmon! It's so tasty, and so expensive. I decided not to let the kids have it (sad, because they are the ones who need it most), but that I would give it a try. So, I'm eating it today. If this blog goes un-updated after today, you'll know why. I've heard of college kids eating several-days-old pizza and being fine. I've also heard of someone eating a baked potato that was left out and getting very sick. Perhaps the college kids were protected by the vast quantities of alcohol flowing through their systems. Good luck to me!

If that's conventional pizza, students are probably saved by untold quantities of preservatives in the bread, cheese, meats, and sauce. Like how margarine or McDonald's fries can sit in the hot sun for days and weeks and months without going bad?

Good luck on that one!

McDonald's fries can last that long?!? Sweet!! Next time I see one lying in the parking lot, I'm eating it!

My coworker went home sick, and she thinks it's from something she ate. So I figure that I'm magic and I transferred the food poisoning into her without knowing it (she's an awesome coworker, so obviously I need to work on my targeting a bit).

We'd always get free pizza for our squadron at the Academy...1/2 a pizza per person. If we got it on Friday I usually stashed it in a drawer for Sunday breakfast and I never died. Sometimes it was a little chewy though.

Well, I didn't die!

By my coworker ended up having an intestinal torsion!!!
