Adventures in solar cooking

Reuben just finished what he considers the grand pearl of all his creations, a solar oven. It would work great here, except for the fact that it's mostly cloudy these days. Dependent on the weather, he tries at every opportunity to make use of this new solar cooking device. I don't have an oven, so I also think it is a great idea. Let the sun do all the cooking. I see a lot of potential in this when January comes and the sun's blazing all day long. He got permission to put the oven up on the roof. Notice the waterfall in the background...it's only a trickle because we haven't had much rain lately.

The first thing we tried was shortbread cookies. On a sunny afternoon, one pan of cookies took about an hour. Too bad my recipe was bad; the cookies were no good :(
