Last week I tried to make macaroni and cheese, something my boys just love to eat, but I couldn’t get the water to boil after two hours and had to leave. This week I was determined to cook some mac & cheese. So, I did the same thing I did last week, but waited almost three whole hours in the middle of the day for the water to boil. Now, I wouldn’t say it was a vigorous boil but acceptable, so I went for it. I dumped in the macaroni, waited about 15 minutes, tested, and voila… it was done!
IMO, three hours is a bit too long of a wait for water to boil but I would suspect that I didn’t have to wait that long just to cook the macaroni. Maybe I’ll try again but deliberately cook the macaroni well before the water boils. On a happier note, my sun oven finally reached temps above 300 degrees, peaking at 340 degrees. Yeah! Oh, and did I mention that my kids weren’t around so I HAD to eat the mac & cheese myself? It was yummy.
