So 12 hours at room temp is okay? It was just in butcher paper, but it was solidly frozen. What about 4 yo dd? Is that okay? I'm happy to hear this, mamas! I took it out of the fridge and then fell asleep with dd, forgetting all about it. I've got a really nice organic stir-fry mix to go with it. It was supposed to be a nice, special supper. Our immune systems are good and strong, so I think I'll go for it!
