Takeout Foods
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     We don't always have time to make dinner at home. So we get takeout food instead. It isn't always healthy, but it is a quick and easy meal. Usually there are leftovers for the next day, too. Many people enjoy eating leftover pizza for breakfast. But you must remember to put leftovers in the refrigerator right away. It isn't a good idea to leave the pizza out all night and then eat it for breakfast the next morning.
 
2     Some foods are hot and other foods are cold when people buy them. Sometimes takeout foods are the leftovers that people bring home from restaurants.
 
3     Foods can make people sick if they aren't handled the right way. There is a two-hour rule for food. Any food like meat, chicken, or food with eggs in it should be thrown out after it has been out for two hours. If the temperature is hotter than ninety degrees, it should be thrown out after one hour.
 
4     After the food is cooked, it should stay hot. Put it in the oven to keep it warm. If you aren't going to eat the food right away, put it into the refrigerator.
