DH comes from a culture where meat-based dishes sit on the pot on the back of the stove and are heated to boiling once a day. They usually last several days. (Granted, many or most of these dishes are thought to have ingredients that have preservative properties, like certain spices.)
DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
i make big pots of soup all the time in winter and i almost never put it in the fridge. the stock pot just sits at the back of the stove. i make sure it is heated through before i eat any of it. my dh will just scoop it out of the pot and eat it room temp, tho, and he hasn't gotten sick, yet *knocks on wood*. i suppose that his gut is used to it, tho, since he's been eating like that his whole life.

Now, I set the timer for like 5 hours, though, to make sure we remember to put it in the fridge before bed.
