A few days ago I grabbed a bunch of cooked hot dogs from the refrigerator and was going to take them for lunches during the week. Anyhow I forgot all about them and left them on the counter. When I got home I saw them sitting on the counter and figured the kids must have recently grabbed them from the fridge and heated one up. Anyhow I grab one and tossed it on a plate into the micro, popped on a roll and had a quick diner. A little while later I say to the kids, make sure you put the food back in the refrigerator next time, they said we haven't eaten since we've been home from school...OH Boy, this is not going to be good. I was expecting a rough night. The night came and passed and I was fine but it started me thinking, was I lucky or are these things that loaded with preservatives that they would not spoil sitting on a 74° counter for close to 10 hours? I believe I was lucky!
