We got a solar oven for Christmas! We were so excited to try it! Every Saturday, when the sun was shining, we set it up in the back yard (Jacob was glad it was in the back, he didn't want the neighbors to think we're weird) No sooner did we have it set up, the clouds would come and the sun would be hidden. We'd end up bringing it back in the house without being able to bake anything. This picture was taken several different times throughout the winter!
Two Saturdays ago, we set it up and the clouds stayed away! Finally! I quickly mixed up some cupcakes and baked them in our outdoor oven!
Voila! They baked just as well as if they were in my kitchen oven!
I hope that if the time comes that we really need to use the sun for power, it will be in the spring and summer. We'll starve if it's winter!
