His birthday falls two days after Libbie’s–or I guess I should say, she had the nerve to be born just two days before her daddy! Haha. Honestly, I think he was pleased as punch to bring home his daughter on his 27th birthday.
So we had a little get-together with some of our friends and it was great! Despite the fact that Mr. V is the last person you want to throw a surprise party for. He had pretty much no reaction. But I think he enjoyed the time with friends.
Since it was a surprise I couldn’t very well bake him a birthday cake while he watched, so I decided to make dump cake (one of his favorites) and told him I was supposed to bring dessert to the dinner we were supposedly having with friends.
My mom made dump cake a lot for potlucks and parties when I was growing up. We discovered from a lady at our church now that you can use the same method to make peach cobbler. Mr. V just loves it.
So while it’s not the healthiest thing in the world, it IS easy and really delicious.
Just be warned you might want a cup of very strong coffee with this to cut the sugar rush you’ll get!
To make it a peach cobbler, substitute 1 large and 1 small can of peach slices in light syrup for the pineapple and cherry pie filling. Drain the large can but use the juices from the small one.
