Dump Cake

Dump some frozen fruit into your Dutch Oven. Here I used 4 cups of Blueberries and Blackberries. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of flour over fruit as a thickener.

Dump one box white cake mix with pudding over fruit flour mixture

Gently dump one 20 oz lemon lime soda over everything. Make sure not to mix or anything of that nature.

Dump some heat above and below... I went 24 above and 6 below in case you are interested.

40 minutes later check on your cake.

It may not be pretty but it sure is delicious.

As a side for your dumpcake it is nice to have something like a Pulled Pork Sandwich and some Potatoe Salad.

Boiled Peanuts

I just returned to Richland after being away for a couple of weeks... and while I'm unloading the truck, the neighbors show up and give me some boiled peanuts.  And while I'd say these are by no means a typical Pacific Northwest snack, they are a treat.  They're pretty darn good.

Salty, Soft, with a hint of Cayenne... This is where the Legume side of the peanut shines.  They remind me of beans.
Except for the bit of peanut flavor.
