freezing/thawing question

So before my husband throws out a perfectly good standing rib roast...I'd like to know if I've done something as dangerous as he claims I have. Early last Saturday I put a frozen roast into the fridge to begin thawing for Sunday dinner (I did anticipate needing some cold water baths to complete the process on Sunday). When I checked it on Sunday, however, it didn't seem to have defrosted at all so I decided to throw it back in the freezer and begin the defrosting process earlier some other time.

Well, my husband realized (inexplicably because he is usually oblivious to what goes on in the kitchen) what I did and has vowed to not eat it, sure that he and everyone else will get food poisoning. I swear it was still rock hard when I put it back in the freezer. There was no area that had softened at all. Am I endangering my family if I cook it in the future?
