Wednesday's Recipe of the Week

We had a slew of folks at the house on Saturday. Kids. Grandkids. Friends. Friends with children. The house was hopping with activity, the lake was sparking in the late afternoon sunshine, the boat full of guests wearing life jackets, the conversation was nonstop, and the grill was smoking.

For dessert I served my "famous banana pudding."

I had not made it in a while, so I had to look for the recipe. When I couldn't find it, I nearly panicked. So, I went by memory, which served me well. You will not go wrong if you bring this to a picnic, a party, or serve it to your family.

You will need:

1 box vanilla wafers
5-6 bananas
1 small carton of whipped topping
1 small can of Eagle Brand (I always buy the nonfat kind)
1 large box instant vanilla pudding


Mix vanilla pudding according to the directions on the box.
Fold together whipped topping and Eagle Brand.
Fold together pudding with second mixture.
(I typically slice the bananas into the pudding)
Layer pan with wafers, top with pudding, layer with wafer, top with pudding ...

Refrigerate 24 hours.

To die for!!! Believe me, they'll be scraping the sides of the pan!
