Cooking cookies on a car – now that’s hot! July 23, 2010

FREDERICK, MD  — You’ve no doubt opened your car on a hot summer day and said something to the effect of, “It feels like an oven inside.”

Well the truth is your car really can be an oven. Outside a car lot in Frederick, Maryland on Thursday, members of the Humane Society baked cookies on a car dashboard.

The point was to show how dangerous it is to leave pets– and people– in a car on a hot day.

The temperature inside a car can rise to more than 120 degrees on a summer day, even with the windows cracked.

Earlier this month, a yellow lab died after being left in a hot car in Maryland and the owner of a Yorkie was cited for the same reason. How very sad and stupid.

The cookies did actually cook; in fact, they ended up getting a little overcooked on top.

So have some sense with what you leave in the car: babies/kids, pets, plants or groceries. Now go get some ice cream with a cookie on the side!

Laugh, learn and liven up your taste buds

    Seriously, we heated up canned food by laying it in the van engine area while we drove. We were vacationing out west (Yellowstone, Tetons, etc. in national parks) and there were no gas stations, restaurants for miles and miles. Our kids thought it was the most red-neck rediculous thing ever. But it worked and it was nice to pull over to the side of the road with a cooler of drinks and the engine heated spaghettios at the ready!!!
