Had fun teaching in Maricopa today - Thanks for inviting me Scott.

Teaching... We had a great day!

Mixing cornbread in the box - not making dirty dishes...



 


Nice hot day to cook with... A little condensation on the inside of the glass.

We address solar oven cooking and hot water in our post-apocalyptic novel, Post Grid.  Writing this was a FUN way to teach too. 



Peach cobbler...

Raw, in the pan...

Adding a piece of glass, worried about condensation on the inside of the oven lid.

My glass was the same size as my pan so I put foil strips around the edges...



Didn't need the foil strips or the glass... no condensation on the inner piece of glass or the oven lid.

one hour and 40 min

FISH TACOSin the solar oven. (Okay, I know it's a little fast-foodish - keep going for more homemade stuff.)

Sprayed the corn tortillas with cooking spray, put chopped pablano peppers in the middle and piled up the fish sticks...

Warning, the corn tortillas came out like hockey pucks, hard! Should have removed them early. The Pablano peppers and fish sticks were fine. Dinner, although a bit crunchy, was good.
I added shredded cabbage and salsa, red on the front one and green salsa on the back one.


BEST BBQ Ribs - sticky, not soggy!!!

Only three ingredients! Ribs, sauce and oven bag.

cooking away...


Cooked in bag but soggy.  Keep reading...

Took them out and emptied the juices, rebasted with sauce and put on an open try.

Cracked the glass lid just slightly and propped open with a plastic cap (the green thing)...

Let the ribs dry and caramelize. These are the best things you will ever eat!
