Saturday In Springdale, Right At The Entrance To Zion National Park Turned Out To Be A Fabulous Day For An Earth Day Celebration.
The Sun Has Been Playing Hide And Seek With Us A Lot This Spring So I Was Extremely Happy When The Day Dawned Pretty Clear.
This Particular Earth Days Celebration Is always A Fun Place To Do A Solar Cooking Demo Because Along With The Locals In The Area, There Are A Lot Of Tourists Visiting Zion National Park And Many From Europe Have Never Even Imagined Such A Thing As Solar Cooking.
My Husband And I Started Out With Bacon And Eggs On The Sol Source Parabolic Cooker. The Smell Of Bacon Always Draws A Crowd And They Are Pretty Impressed That Such Yummy Food Can Be Cooked With Only The Sun For Power. A Few Always check Furtively for A Power Cord Plugged In Secretly!!!!!
While My Hubby Cooked On The Sol Source, I Got A Quick And Yummy Snack Made With Soup Crackers Marinated A Few Minutes In Oil, Ranch Dressing Mix Powder, Onion Powder, And Red Pepper Flakes Ready To Bake For 10 Minutes In The Sun Oven.
While That Marinated, I Got Yams In The Hot Pot To Make Into A Yummy Salad Later.
For almost 4 hours, We Cooked Cornbread, Corn On The Cob, Pizza Bites, Cupcakes, Italian Meatballs With A Yummy Red Sauce Using My Custom Recipe. I Was Prepared To Mix Up Bread Dough But Got So Busy I Never Got It Done And Then With About 2 1/2 Hours Left, The Clouds Came Floating Over Slowly And So Our Power Became Sporadic.
We Had A Wonderful Time Visiting With People Though And Met A Particular Couple Who seem To Be Like Minded Who Were Going To NM This Summer To Look Into The Process Of Building An Earth-ship.
Great Day And Fun Demo!
