Pumpkin Dump Cake

The local Farmers Market I sell at hires a caterer to come to the market and serve samples of dishes she's made with what's in season. She passes out the recipes along with the samples. Everyone enjoys when she is serving and tasting all the different things she fixes.

This is a great pumpkin recipe she served:

Fiddlehead Soup

With such nice spring weather I've been antsy to start sampling the fresh greens and goodies. Oh... How good fiddlesoup would taste! Of course I never use a recipe, just take a little of this and a little of that, then put it in the crock pot. Wouldn't you know, pretty soon that pot is full and I was only gonna make a small batch. Oh well! That's life. You can never make a small batch of soup.

Went out yesterday afternoon for a walk to check the fiddleheads. Nope not up yet. Darn it! The asparagus isn't poking through either. The rhubarb is coming along nicely but not ready to pick yet either. Guess I'll just have to continue waiting impatiently for spring greens.

For those of you that use recipes for soup, here's a link to a fiddlehead soup recipe. And if you are wondering what fiddleheads are, here's a good fiddlehead article that tells about the different kinds of ferns you get fiddleheads from.
