Cool Food for Hot Days

Global Sun oven

I don't know about everywhere else, but here in SLC, it is scorchin' hot.  In terms of the food cooking on sidewalk rating system, it is definitely hot enough to cook some eggs on the sidewalk and bake some cookies in the car.

For those of you who don't want your car to smell of chocolate chip cookies or a roasted turkey, there are other ways to cook using the sun's energy, such as solar ovens.  Unfortunately, you may missed Wasatch Community Gardens' workshop on solar cooking. However, you can still read about City Weekly's insights on the process of solar cookery.  There are many designs for solar cookers, and they work reasonably well.  There are recipes to try once you finish slaving in the hot sun over (you shouldn't stand over it, because you'll block the sun) you r oven.

However, I digress from the title of the blog.  Who would want hot sun oven food on a hot day?  How about something cold?  NPR had some good suggestions:

The story, if you don't have the 2:21 minutes to spare, says frozen grapes are very popular.

Another good suggestion is food processed frozen bananas with nutella! Yum!

Yogurt, cucumbers, lemon juice, barley makes a good summer salad.

Another great suggestion from NPR is summer desserts.
