Tonight we were supposed to have grilled hamburgers for dinner. After lunch I started to make the buns and then said to myself . . I can go sew for an hour and then start the buns! At 4:00, I looked at the clock and said THE BUNS!! It was way too late to start hamburger buns from scratch so I decided to make a meat loaf and since I didn’t want to use the oven and wasn’t sure how the solar oven was going to work with not getting the meatloaf in there til 4:30, I used the 8″ x 8″ cake pan and made a square, thinner meatloaf instead of using a loaf pan and making it thick. It was completely done by 5:30. Thank goodness for the Texas sun!
Peas, potatoes, meatloaf and leftover pretzel rolls from the weekend and I didn’t use the oven.
For our climate, the solar oven has been a fantastic investment!
