Southern Culture on the Skids
Last weekend, I met up for lunch with a friend of mine, who was kind enough to pick up the tab because of my might-soon-be-uncertain employment status, so thank you, Laurie! I owe you one. ANYway, we had been talking on the phone earlier in the week, and she was telling me about some weird dessert concoction that is a holiday tradition in her family, and she brought some along for me to try.
It was Southern Pineapple Casserole.
It tasted ... odd, but not as odd as one might think a dish made with pineapple and cheese and Ritz crackers and butter (erk) would taste.
But it got me thinking ... it tasted really, really similar to another dessert I had tried before ... one with, like, pineapple and cake mix and butter ... what was it, what was it ...
And then I remembered: Dump Cake! I had once made a Dump Cake that tasted really similar to the casserole. Time to google, where I found an old favorite website, but only if your stomach's not feeling queasy ...
The Southern Culture on the Skids recipe site!
Let me warn you again ... do not click on that if your stomach is under par or if you are a delicate flower, because some of those recipes are a little dubious. And feature roadkill. But if you could use a laugh, click away! And I gotta say, the Dump Cake recipe is not half bad.
