    Freezing fish/meat to take for lunch? (no cold pack)

    Hi!! I don't have a cold pack yet (I'l try to get one soon) and I'd like to be able to take some fish that I have left over on campus for me for lunch. I've got an insulated lunch box, but alas, I won't be able to get a cold pack for a while. Can I freeze fish or chicken, take it out around 7 and eat it for lunch at 11 or 12? Is that safe? It'll be in an insulated lunch box.

    When I was in high school, my locker was outside, in the sun, and I survived eating lunches that were stored in there for four or so hours. I used to freeze a can of pop or other drink and use that as an ice pack, some of the time, anyway - if you have a plastic water bottle, fill it about 2/3 full and freeze it.

    I have heard of people freezing sandwiches and eating them after they thaw. I think that you'd be safe freezing cooked food - if anything, it might not be fully thawed, and that would keep you from eating them, at least right then.
