Last week’s fickle weather made solar cooking a little tricky. The mornings were mostly cloudy. Around noon the sun would make a feeble appearance, just enough to get my hopes up, then it would be intermittent sun and clouds for the remainder of the day. So when I got a full day of sunshine on Sunday I made the most of it. In addition to the biscotti that I blogged about already I made a couple of big batches of some of our favorite things – and squirreled most of it away in the freezer. It’s a good thing I did, because this week’s forecast isn’t looking any better. Now with a well stocked freezer we can enjoy (reheated) solar cooked meals even when it’s cloudy.

Here are a few of my recipes that freeze well:

Slow Braised Boneless Beef Short Ribs

Solar Braised Chicken with Tomatoes and Olives

Sun Oven Split Pea Soup

Chicken, Chickpeas, and Couscous

Wheat Berry and Bean Soup

Pretty much any soup or stew is a candidate for freezing. I freeze mine in small, or even individual, servings and only heat up as much as needed at a time.
