About this time of year people start talking about how hot it is, such as "It's so hot you could fry and egg on a sidewalk." People also start doing more cooking outdoors in order to keep the house cool, such as grilling on a barbeque, making sun tea, and wrapping uncooked dinner ingredients in foil and placing it in their car's rear window in the morning before they leave for work.
I thought I'd look to see if anyone had come up with anything new in this area, and although it looks like this isn't new, it's certainly new to me: sun ovens! It's basically a mirrored-lined or metal-lined box in which you place your food, and the food is cooked by the intensified heat of the sun. There are also numerous blogs about sun oven recipes!
