Christmas Toys

Here is one of my favorite Christmas toys from Rambo Man, a Sun Oven along with bake ware to use in it!! Last fall I was going to order one for myself as an Anniversary gift from Rambo man but when it came time to hit the process order button I just couldn't do it. I had already started Christmas shopping and we still had another grand daughter due to arrive in October so I just added the Sun Oven to my would like to have one day list. Of course our kids think I am off my rocker once again for wanting something so odd but I think this is gonna be super cool to have. The temperature is 19 degrees this morning and while the oven will work on a sunny day even in the freezing cold I am gonna be holding off a bit. I can see it now in the how did you fall and break you hip lady? Well Sir....... I decided to lug my new Sun Oven out back this morning and make a few loafs of bread when I slipped on the icy deck. I might get moved to the front of the line in triage not over the broken hip but due to the nut cases they would think I am. Until the weather turns around a bit and I do more studying up on my new toy it will just set proudly under the Christmas tree. I really wanted the oven to have an alternative way to cook and bake in the summer, don't mind a bit turning the regular oven on in the winter when the house could use all the heat we can get, it's the summers when heating up the house while the air conditioner is on that makes my menopausal body crazy.
I can see we will have to do a bit more rearranging in the garage to find a safe spot for the oven and bake ware but that will defiantly be for a warmer day.
I will have Kara today that is if Mommy can get the car to start, so far she is having trouble getting it going in this cold weather. Kara and I will start taking down Christmas decorations, I like to have all of it put away before New Years day so we start the new year with a clean slate. I also need to do a major clean out of the pantry, refrigerator and freezers, things have gotten way out of order over the holiday.


  1. I look forward to seeing that beauty in action! So glad you had a great Christmas!

  2. Thanks MM, I am looking forward to learning how to use the oven, I have read so many great things about it!! Hope it will save a little money on the electric bill this summer by keeping the oven off and the air conditioner from working so hard, canning is bad enough in the summer, baking is a butt kicker
