(CNN)   Well, we finally got us a bunch of summer heat waves going on across the country, so it must be time for another "look at what kind of food you can cook in your hot car" article from CNN   (ireport.cnn.com) divider line 41

If we can keep these engine block eggs down, we'll be sittin' pretty!

There are a couple of people worried about leaving dogs in the car so I thought I'd add my tip. Don't forget to baste the dog at 20 minute intervals.

Even in winter, my car is a dutch oven.

I did cookies last Friday at work and everybody agreed that they were delicious. Crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle.
 
2012-07-02 06:56:48 PM
does a car get hot enough to kill off any potential salmonella from the eggs in those cookies

/also I should make a solar oven to use in our back yard

Just because there's all these heat waves around the country doesn't mean anything. Global warming isn't real, it just means god is on a tanning bed.

Ever since they botched the Obamacare they've seemed to scale back, and are going back to basics.
Play it save cnn, I understand.

Better than the "heat waves are proof of global warming" articles.

If you get a Rubbermaid bin and leave some carrots, onions, celery, a toddler, and small dogs (to taste) in your car while at work, you have a great stew for dinner!

And the network wonders why its ratings keep plummeting....

Pro Tip: If you are going to a 4th of July party and cooking ears of corn via the engine method on your way there, don't get so drunk that you forget to remove them all. Otherwise in September you may find yourself having to explain them to a very puzzled mechanic.

Just stick a vienna sausage into the cigarette lighter plug for about 30 seconds.

I'm waiting for a story about cooking a shark on your engine during a hurricane. I'm pretty sure it would be followed by a collective orgasm at CNN.

I live in Southern California, and I have always cooked my lunch in my car in the summer. All I do is leave my lunch on my dash when I go into work. I cook microwave meals and warm up leftovers. It gets hot enough that sometimes soup burns my tongue.

This is boring.
We need a climate change thread.

" Today's temperature's gonna rise up over 100 degrees, so there's a Jheri curl alert! That's right, Jheri curl alert. If you have a Jheri curl, stay in the house or you'll end up with a permanent black helmet on your head fuh-eva! "

I *still* trust an engine block pizza more than Domino's.

When it freezes next winter I'm gonna make some homemade popsicles outside and call CNN.

Solar power can be free power ;-)

One of my tomato friends sent me this link for making sun dried maters in the car, I haven't tried it yet but it does look workable. I think the only drawback would be your car smelling like tomato soup. I dunno, maybe that is a plus if your car is old and already skanky.

I would like to 'bake her cookies' for an hour.

Looks to me like the greatest car air freshener ever.

/never gets hot enough for that here
//truck acts as an icemaker 6 months out of the year though.

I used to leave my ham and cheese on the dash before I trotted into work, and by the time I trotted out for lunch, melty goodness!

/no trots, just delicious warm melty jambon avec fromage!
 
2012-07-02 08:19:46 PM
Um it was a sandwich, not just ham and cheese by itself!!!
 
2012-07-02 08:30:16 PM
Am I the only one who is going to call BS? It certainly gets hot in a car in the summer (I live in Phoenix so I'm getting a kick out of complaints about 103, etc.), certainly hot enough that it moght get things to an edible "hot" - but no where near enough to cook them. Hell, in Phoenix it ONLY gets to about 150, and that's in a CLOSED car, this car had its windows open.

And before you say "solar oven" - this isn't one. The glass isn't curved to focus sunlight.

I might believe that the sugar in the cookie dough melted and then resolidified in a cookie shape when cooled, but those things were NOT cooked.

reading cnn.com viewer comments makes me feel so much better about myself.
 
2012-07-02 11:04:47 PM

DontMakeMeComeBackThere: those things were NOT cooked


Sure they were. Do you cook much? The car has a temperature akin to a slow cook oven. Leave cookie dough in there at 100 or so for an hour or so and yes, the protein has denatured and reformed, the sugar has caramelized. I'd call that 'cooked'
 
2012-07-03 12:02:13 AM
I remember last summer people cooking a grandmother, three dogs and a kid.

Stupid people that is

Loucifer: Even in winter, my car is a dutch oven.


Do you steer it with a dutch rudder?

/I know you do
