In Case You Wonder… Life With a Wonderoven

Proverbs 31:10, 14
Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.

She rises also while it is yet night, and gives meat
to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

Preparation and versatility. It takes preparation in order to
use the Wonderoven, and versatility to use it on the farm on a daily basis.
We don’t go shopping very often because we eat what’s in season.
Our meats are limited to the sheep and chicken that we raise.

Pic-1For instance: A couple of days ago I pulled out some sheep meat from the freezer,
and let it cook up a bit in order to get the meat off the bones. After it was
partially cooked(about 30 minutes), it was cooled, cut up, and put back in the pot.
I added sliced carrots, sliced yam from the garden, and pumpkin, to the pot with
the liquid from the partially cooked meat and added ¾ of a bag of lentils.
I also added tomato paste, salt, brown sugar, and spices, as well as some flour
mixed in with the broth to thicken it. Then I added enough water to cover it
and to cook the lentils, and brought it to a rolling boil.

and when we got home the stew was perfectly done. I would like to make
myself another bag, as I could have also been cooking rice to go with it.

In addition, I put some garbanzo beans to soak before I left.
After our yummy Lamb Stew that we had for dinner, I boiled the
garbanzos for about 10-15 minutes and placed them in the bag.
The next day, I made a type of Chickpea-Lentil Soup with Artisan Bread for dinner,
and for Shabbat Evening I made our Stuffed Cannelloni in the Wonderoven.
