The Windshield Shade Solar Cooker

I like to prepare food with Solar Cookers, and in my posts The Cardboard Solar Cooker and The Cardboard Solar Cooker Part 2 I managed to cook rice and even make pizza.
 
But I wanted to see if an improvised Solar Cooker could do the same.
 
Obviously "improvised" means "not as effective" but I would be happy if I could cook just a smaller meal or speed up the SODIS - Solar Water Disinfection process.

I decided to make myself a hobo onion for lunch:
 
Take an onion...

...carve a hole in it...

...and fill with butter or like on the picture: Feta Cheese.

Using as Solar Cooker: Cheapest possible windshield shade.

I put the hobo onion in a baking bag.
 

I wrap (drape?) the windshield shade around a garden chair
and try to form a funnel. I keep the shade in place with
clothespins and similar.

And then the sun came out......WHOA!

45 minutes later: A nicely baked hobo onion.

Goes well with Ciabata and Tzatziki!
