Do you ever have those days where nothing goes as planned? This past weekend my hubby was off work for four days because of the Fourth of July. We wanted to clean out some closets, purge some junk, and he also wanted to work on his car. The weekend went fine. We got some cleaning done and had a lazy movie night with the kids.
Then Monday morning our son found a giant wet spot on the carpet. The condensation tube for our air conditioner had gotten blocked and was leaking water everywhere. We have no idea how long it has been like that. Our air conditioner unit is located behind one of our living room walls. No one usually walks or sits back there.
My husband got a rug doctor from our church and got to work on the carpet. After getting a few gallons out, he pulled the carpet back and looked at the padding. It was still completely soaked!
All we could do was pull the carpet back further and take out the soggy padding. My hubby had to cut padding, dry flooring, and go buy new padding. At least we found it before it got any further, right?
One day later and 8 feet of new padding, and we are good to go. Fingers crossed we got that tube completely unclogged because we don’t want to find more water in the carpet again.
Let’s talk about some comfort food. Over the years an easy gooey dump cake or this easy strawberry cobbler have been some of our go to desserts during the summer. I can’t believe that I have never shared one of them on the blog before now.
The name can kind of be a turn off for some people. I don’t know why something so delicious is called dump cake. You literally DUMP everything into the pan and bake it, so that’s where the name came from. No stirring, no mixing, no work. Gotta love easy desserts that taste out of this world, right?
There are so many different ways you could make a dump cake. You could do vanilla cake with blueberry or cherry filling. Or try spice cake with apple pie filling. The possibilities are endless!
I dumped it all in my casserole dish and baked it for about 50 minutes. Let the cake sit for just a little bit to set up, but make sure you serve it warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. It’s so good!!!
