Hot Fun in the Summertime | Experiment #2


It’s SO hot – you could fry an egg on the sidewalk!

It’s SO hot- you could bake from inside your car!

It’s SO hot – you could cook a hotdog in an outdoor solar oven built from cardboard and tinfoil! (Ok, you’re going to have to wait until tomorrow for that adventure…)

In keeping with our pointless experiments with food products to demonstrate the obvious magnitude of this summer heat wave, we picked up where we left off yesterday with our botched fried egg experiment.

This time we timed things a little better, to give all of you curious kids out there a little more perspective.

SO- at 1pm CST we drizzled our oil in a frying pan and let it heat for exactly 15 minutes.

Then we cracked in our eggs and waited..

and waited

and waited.

Finally- SIZZLING SUCCESS BEGAN! The whites began to whiten and the yolks began to harden –

Then it started to rain again…

If any of you budding scientists would like to debunk our theory about cooking eggs outdoors to make it rain, we welcome your thoughts. If you have no idea what I am talking about, see EXPERIMENT #1

FYI at the time of this experiment, the temperature was 102 degrees with a heat index of 117. 🙂

As for our delicious baked oatmeal raisin treats straight from the dash of Rob’s Jaguar?

After two hours the inside of the car started to smell pretty irresistible. The perfect “set it and forget it” kind of baking that I can really get behind.

Cookie, anyone?
