Yes, this is a picture of toast on the dashboard of my car. It's phase one of a scientific experiment. Yesterday, Kricket wondered if it would be possible to pop popcorn in the hot interior of a car. The interior of a car can get as hot as 200 degrees in the summer in Arizona. Popcorn begins to pop at about 350 degrees, which is about 150 degrees hotter than we can attain in the interior of a car.
There are other parts of the car that get hotter, so we'll continue to work on that aspect. Meanwhile, just to prove that you CAN cook SOMETHING in your car, we put this bread on the dashboard of my car. Hopefully it will become toast.
UPDATE: It did become toast! Dry, slightly bent toast. Probably the nastiest toast I've ever eaten.
