First solar cooking after winter

by Alicia Perez
(Elizabeth, CO)

Today we got our parabolic solar burner out of winter storage, for a spring morning solar cooking session. Our boys ages 10 & 12 made breakfast porridge out of freshly ground millet, oats, wheat and water (later topped with butter and honey or sugar).

It was a refreshing scene, after the winter snows, to see steam rising from the pot against the backdrop of a sunny blue sky. The porridge bubbled gently, as birds sang their lovely songs.

It was a satisfying feeling to know that we once again, cooked a meal for free in the sun.


Thank you Alicia,

You made it sound very serene and...almost spiritual with the location description.

Yes, it is good to be able to cook with the power of the sun.
