Old habits can be hard to break.
After I’d had my Sun Oven for a few months I realized that I wasn’t using it as much as I could. I’d find myself serving my conventionally prepared dinner and thinking, “I could have made this in the Sun Oven”. I needed to retrain myself. That’s when, weather permitting, I started setting up the Sun Oven first thing in the morning; even on days when I had no idea what I’d be cooking. I could see the oven from my kitchen window and that visual cue was enough to remind me to use it.
With my oven always ready to go I can take advantage of deals like the one I found today at my local supermarket. This pre-cut beet, sweet potato, and butternut squash combo was %70 percent off. For less than a dollar, a little sunshine, a drizzle of olive oil, and zero peeling or chopping I had a colorful, solar cooked side dish to go with our lunch.
