I left my lunch (palak paneer with rice) at home. I want to eat it after I get off work. Good idea or bad idea?

There is some absolutely delicious palak paneer that I had been saving for today because I didn't finish it at the restaurant last night. When I got home from the restaurant I put it in the refrigerator with the intention of taking it to work this morning. I took it out of the refrigerator this morning and left it in the vicinity of the front door, but I forgot about it.
So the question is, can I eat it when I get home?
Was fresh yesterday at 6pm. Put in refrigerator at 7:30pm.
Was taken out of refrigerator today at 8:30am.
I hope to be home today before 6pm.
The thermostat at home is set for 60, though I left it in the coolest area of the house and away from heat vents.
There is way more palak than paneer - though there are chunks of paneer, the rest is green.
I have no problem not reheating it.
I have no problem tossing the cheese if it means I can eat the rest. :)
