I put some in the fridge
Today I've brought it to work.
If I microwave it, am I going to die?
"Stand back, this man is a scientist!"
Grow a pair, you fanny.
It'll be fine. If anything, tastier than when you first cooked it.
Not if you eat two day old sphag bol though.
Microwaves flummox me
Yes. But you will die even if you don't microwave it.
You might as well die having eaten some spag.
you should have made less spag bol. You know, the amount you'd be likely to eat. That would be kind of crazy though, huh.
Dear God, you actually ARE mental.
Speaking for myself, I wouldn't want to live in a world where I'd had just enough spag bol. There must always be just a little bit more.
mmmm spag bol
the way forward is making a HUGE bowl. that way you can have spaghetti bolognese anytime you want [which, if you were me, is all the time] without having to prepare it every time.
eat it and then make another half and then eat that – lest it goes off mid-meal.
I like to make more than I could possibly eat. And then eat it.
Sometimes I'll have an attack of sense and make more than I could possibly eat; eat just enough so that I only feel like I want to die, fall asleep, wake up a few hours later and eat the rest.
Very occasionally the meal will actually make it to the next day - at which point we have a delicious lunch.
So I should've just let it rot?
Rather than making more, keeping some for lunch ensuring I don't have to spend £5 on exorbitant sandwiches that get sold round here
You get than gone-off food is gone-off even if it's cooked, right...?
though it would have been fine to eat the next day anyway

Today being Friday
*leaps off portakabin after a dragonfly lands on my ankle*
Defrost it at a later date then cook it.
I can't believe I'm still alive.
But feel free to call me an idiot, which is your standard form.
I couldn't care less, because I had a tasty spag bol for lunch, and I'm guessing you made a sandwich and then threw out the rest of the bread immeadiately.
actually being some sort of PhD research project on Crazy People on Internet Forums?
I made some on Tuesday and microwaved it last night and it was very nice. Often it will taste better than when you originally made it.
I saw one recipe for chilli and it suggested that after making it you put it in the fridge for 24 hours before eating.
So it'll be spicier if you leave it a bit.
its perfectly fine but the spagetti will stick to eachother.better than going out to buy food in my opinion
so yeah. zap that baby up
or maybe try and make an indian one myself for tomorrow night..
ooh im so hungry now, a guy in the office is sitting with garlic potatos.. mmmm
Misses out on higher for failure to use the potential "LOL" in it
i do this several times a week. joyous lunchtimes.
if you have a stove at work though, it'll be much much nicer if you warm it up in a pan.
get a stove! or a bunsen burner.
it'll be fine. When I tend to make a batch up I often make it stretch to four or five days. Less mess, less cooking time, quick and easy meals.
didn't work. Am now hungry.
that sounds rank.
It really, really was.
Leftovers for lunch FTW, saves a fiver a day, and not loaded with so much crap as lunch stuff from around here.
The EAT soup I had the other day had 23 grams of fat in it
Then I'd freeze them in freezer bags for each day of the week and just take one out each day fresh in the morning.

I was on a big financial efficiency drive but I got bored of the salad sections of my sandwiches being mushy.
However, I can confirm that peanut butter as well as cheese freezes very well and such sandwiches are very fresh tasting when you finally open the zip-locked bag come lunch time.
I think you're making it up! The bread would go weird, no?
When you leave it to defrost in a slices like that it tastes fine. You just have to have airtight bags you put it in or else it'll dry out as it defrosts.
Hmm, might have to test your theory out... I'm scared. And I can't think of a sandwich filling I like that would feeze well. Any suggestions other than peanut butter and cheese?
Question: if it's in a bag, doesn't the bread go soggy as it defrosts?
This was definitely the weakest
