    Default Should I still serve it?

    Just dishing out dinner and discovered a house fly sitting in it.

    It's a slow cooked chicken casserole, heaps of veggies and chicken in it. It's been cooking for 8hours, smells devine, kids are saying they can't wait for dinner any longer.

    Most of me says chuck it, but there is a little voice saying it'll be alright. Don't really have anything else other than toast to give them.

    What would you do???

    I should say the fly has been cooked in with the dinner, I am thinking / hoping most of bugs would have killed by cooking.
