I'm not one who believes that everything has to be refrigerated shortly after it has been served. Many time, we leave dinner out all night, and we have the next day. None of us has ever gotten sick as a result of this. We're European, and we simply don't have the refrigeration units that you do, here in America. On occasion, we will go to the mountains with an empty bucket, to get milk from the local farmer. We don't even refrigerate it, and it's fine. Perhaps we have grown accustom to it, and you haven't, but we never get sick. In fact, many of us are rarely ill. I think that people need to just lighten up on this hysteria of keeping food in a cold climate, because it's kind of ridiculous. America! Get a grip!
