Transporting hot sandwich - ORD to BOS

I'm in Chicago getting ready to fly home to Boston. If I buy an Italian beef sandwich (sold hot) right before I board the airplane at 7pm ET and manage to get it into my fridge at home by around 11pm ET is there any chance that it would be edible tomorrow with a bit of microwaving? By edible I only mean safe to eat -- aesthetics are not a consideration.

Low and slow? Or bacterial breeding ground?

Guys I've been trying to smoke a couple pork shoulders for the past four hours. Can't get the temp over 120F. Go time is in 3 hours and I'm about to just throw them in the oven, because they're totally smoked but barely cooked. But the question is, are they safe to eat?

What side dish/appetizer should I make with these ingredients?

I am going to a friend's house later for an impromptu, casual Thanksgiving dinner. I want to bring a little something to contribute, that would be tasty yet unconventional with turkey dinner. There are a few standout ingredients in my fridge, which include gorditas, flour tortillas, chicken breast, sweet potato and regular potato, refried beans, green onions, chipotle in adobo, salsa, and both mozzarella and cheddar cheese. I was thinking empanadas with the chicken, potato, cheese, and refried beans... but I'd prefer to not have to make dough from scratch. Is there another dish that you'd recommend considering what I've got? Thanks!

Japanese pantry staples?

I'm looking to expand my home cooking horizons in the direction of Japan (not sushi, everything else). What are some long-lasting pantry staples I should be looking to acquire on my first trip to a local Asian supermarket? So far I'm planning on Mirin, Hon-Dashi and dark and light Miso. What other specialist ingredients like these should I aim to stock my cupboard with?

Help me with vegan meal prep ideas

My partner and I jointly try to bring lunches from home throughout the week. I used to do this solo with less problems, but the combination of vegan-only and the amount of food required for two people instead of one is bogging us down. Also, many of our go-tos are soups, and it's hot here which discourages that. Halp? [more inside]

Help a midwestern girl with her (frozen) mussels.

I'm a good cook, but not very confident with seafood as the seafood selection convenient to me are not very appealing. However, the independent supermarket near me is having a sale on frozen mussels this weekend and they look tempting. Are they worth it? What should I make with them, if I do buy them?

Week-long pre-wedding camping/festival practicalities

I'm engaged to my wonderful partner, and we'll be getting married in her country (Sweden) with many of our friends and family travelling from my country (Australia).

Need new noms

I've been doing little cooking challenges for a while. Not every Sunday, but, often, I challenge myself to make something slightly complicated that I've never made before. I've found that I tend toward French/Cajun and, distantly second, Italian. I would like to expand my culinary horizons. [more inside]

The opposite of energy drinks

What products are on the market that are the opposite of energy drinks? Gas stations and small convenience stores are replete with small bottles of 5 hour energy and cans of Rockstar, but not so much the opposite. I'm looking for examples of drinks which are marketed with the effect of being relaxing or calming.

How much meat has to be in food to be able to smell it?

I'm anosmic (born without the sense of smell) and I have weird smell-related questions pop into my head sometimes. Usually I ask whoever's around, but it's late and no one is presently available so I'm turning to you: how much meat has to be in food to be able to smell that there's meat involved? [more inside]
