Sun Oven Sunday Dinner

I absolutely LOVE my Sun Oven, so much so that I now have two! The new All American Sun Oven came out and it is bigger and better and I had to have one. I waited patiently until we had them at Thrive Life, OK not so patiently, but I have mine now.

We have been eating nice and light around here for quite some time now.  Saturday we used the Sun Oven to make Citrus Chicken. It's hot and sunny here so it didn't take very long to cook my boneless citrus marinated chicken breasts and thighs. They turned out very nice, plump and juicy.

But there are times that I miss the big Sunday dinners I use to make. This Sunday I found myself craving roasted vegetables and pot roast. I also did not want to heat up my kitchen. So I made it as easy on myself as I could. 

These ....

Turned into these, roasted and not dried out.

Since I was using a pan that would reflect the heat I covered the lid with a dark kitchen towel. Worked great!

When all was done I just let my meat rest while I reduced the juices and thicken slightly to make a very nice tasty sauce.

Now for dessert.  We really needed something light after this meal. I found a recipe on Pinterest that really intrigued me. It was just a box of Angel Food cake mix and a can of crushed pineapple. That's it! You stir the two together and bake in a 9x13 pan and it was very nice. I just wanted a little more flavor to it. It made me think of the ambrosia pudding I use to make. So I added some of those flavors. 

I don't have any canned pineapple so I used my Thrive Pineapple Chunks that I reconstituted with water then blitzed in the blender to "crush". I added drained mandarin oranges and coconut.
Stirred gently and poured into a parchment lined pan.
After it baked in the Sun Oven I created a glaze using the mandarin orange juice and powdered sugar. Drizzed glaze on top of the cake and sprinkled some extra coconut.

Tasted even better than it looks!

If you would like more details on the Sun Oven or more details on the cooking of foods in the Sun Oven please don't hesitate to ask! You can leave a message here or email me directly.
