It looks like hot weather is coming our way. Time to use the Solar and Wonder Ovens we have been writing about. I love the Wonder Oven; I use it as much as I can. Hopefully I will use the solar oven more this year. Following are some recipes from a friend, she has tried them, and so I know they are good.
1 egg beaten ½ cup honey 1 tsp vanilla
½ cup whole wheat flour ½ tsp. baking soda ½ tsp nutmeg
1 cup quick rolled oats ½ cup chopped nuts
In a small bowl beat together egg, honey, melted butter and vanilla. In another bowl sift together flour, baking soda and nutmeg. Add oats and walnuts to the flour mixture and stir. Add the egg mixture to dry ingredients and mix well. In a solar oven bake approximately 2 hours in a covered, buttered 9×9 pan. Options, add raisins/ or carob chips. Or both
5 to 6 chicken breast skinned (I use chicken thighs)
1 package Italian salad dressing
1 cup long grain rice
2 cups water
1 tab butter or margarine
Place the chicken in a roaster pan, sprinkle package of Italian dressing mix over pieces of chicken then cover. Place rice and butter, in another oven pot and cover. Put chicken in a solar oven at noon to cook, take out at 5pm.
Rice is made separately. Cook either in the same or another solar oven for 1-2 hours. Or you can use the Wonder Oven for 40 minutes. If using Wonder Oven increase water to 31/2 cups. Remember that the temperatures in solar ovens can differ depending on their design. Learn how to use your solar oven now before you really need it.
