Ellie and I made a meatloaf today in the solar cooker we built around Christmas. It was a bit windy, so I put together a kind of cardboard frame to hold it together and then sort of secured everything with clothespins.
Ellie did much of the stirring and mixing as I measured all of the ingredients. Then I spooned our meatloaf into a quart jar painted black with non-toxic paint. We had it in the sun from 11am to 1pm and it was about 190 degrees Fahrenheit when I brought it in.
It was no better, but no worse than meatloaf made in the oven, perhaps a bit more moist but generally unbrowned. Linda condescended to try some, and said it tasted fine.
Four eyes, four legs
Four eyes: For those who remember, Linda had a prism for a long time after her stroke to take care of some double vision. She generally doesn't wear a prism now, although her glasses are slightly bent from falling on them. Still, she is wearing her contact lenses more and more. They make her a bit tired by the end of the day (she could still do with just a little bit of prism probably) but she much prefers to wear them to glasses.
Four legs: We are still practicing with Linda's forearm crutches. We don't do them everyday, but pretty regular. Of course they keep her hands full, so she can't carry anything. She can't even really scratch her nose, so the canes will definitely be for "out" when we get somewhere that just isn't practical with a walker or wheelchair.
