One drawback to solar cooking is timing.
A solar cooked dinner has to get started early in the day and a change of plans means you might find yourself with a fully cooked meal that you’re not going to be eating right away.
This happened to me last weekend. I had a batch of braised chicken with tomatoes and olives going in the Sun Oven when we decided to meet up with some friends on the other side of town for dinner.
Once again, just like with yesterday’s cookies, the freezer saved the day.
I divided the stew up into single serving sizes and put them in the freezer.
This morning I popped one in the Sun Oven about an hour before lunch time and I was able to enjoy a hot, solar cooked meal with no prep work and very little clean up.
