    Happy up-coming Labor Day to all UPS Teamsters. Above please find pic of Peter J Maguire Memorial founder of Labor Day in Arlington Cemetary Pennsauken NJ.Stewie worked there for 3 year's summers during high school. The last week of the summer we had to make sure the grounds around the memorial were perfect for the yearly ceremony. We were non-union grounds keepers and grave diggers of course. LOL

    about Peach Days Celebration:

    Brigham City's annual Peach Days Celebration began in 1904 as a way to celebrate the "abundance of the best peaches in Utah." The event continues to this day. Offered on the weekend following Labor Day, the celebration features a parade, a breakfast, pageants, a book sale, a street fair, a teen dance, children's activities, a carnival, a car show, a 10K road race, live music, and more. Festivities take place at several locations around Brigham City, including the courthouse, the library, on Main Street from 100 North to 100 South, the Brigham City Museum, Pioneer Park, Forest Street, the fire station, and the community center.

    I know that recipe well!! I went through Wood Badge and we cooked every single meal out of a dutch oven for a week. I make a great chicken pot pie. We used to take our Boy Scouts camping and cook, layer cakes, anything you can think of.

    1 lg. can sliced peaches
    1 pkg. white or yellow cake mix
    1/4 lb. butter (1 stick)
    ground cinnamon, for dusting


    Dutch Oven: Prepare charcoal (35 pieces) for Dutch Oven baking.


    Rub the inside of the Dutch oven with cooking oil.
    Place 8 pieces of charcoal under the oven and 20 pieces on top.
    When the oven is hot, pour peaches and juice into the oven.
    Add the dry cake mix on top of the peaches.
    Cut the butter into pats (small chunks) and place on top of the cake mix.
    Dust everything with cinnamon (lightly).
    Put the lid back on the oven and bake for 40 minutes. Check cake with a clean straw or knife. Do this by sticking the straw into the cake mix. If the straw comes out clean, the cake is done. If not, add charcoal to the oven and bake 10 more minutes. Check again. Cooks Note: A double batch can be baked in a 14 inch Dutch oven. 2 cans of peaches makes a juicier cobbler.
