Survival Skills

What will Gabe cook up today?
Gabe took it upon himself to make a solar oven today.  By the time he had it together the skies were overcast.

Oven complete with cookie creation by Gabe and Lydia inside.  They followed no recipe for the cookies, so it was a complete experiment.  The cookies baked well in the conventional oven after solar power failed, and they were GAPS legal too.

Insulated box with layers of foil and black paper to absorb heat.  Marshal was impressed when he came home, and gave a few ideas for capturing the solar power more intensely.  Gabe followed Dad's advice and remodeled his solar funnel to box window right away.  Now waiting for sun power.
