Banana Pudding Parfait

The next mystery Clue will be posted Wednesday - it will take you right at one hour - so! You can make this, sew a little bit, and then when your clue is over - you can reward yourself with dessert!!


OR

Better yet - have your Spouse/Partner bring you dinner so that you can sew the day away - and reward them with dessert!!

Dessert always wins me more stitching time around here

Banana Pudding Parfait

Ingredients:

1 Vanilla Cook and Serve Pudding
( you can use instant but I prefer to make it look hard, and that I am REALLY REALLY working for my family)
1 tub of cool whip
2 bananas

This makes 4 pudding parfaits - I have boys that will eat 37 if I allow them to - so I double it!



I made the Cook and Serve pudding and let it cool for about an hour
(PS - that is enough time to actually do your clue!)

Then I set the cups up and start layering


I layer in this order:


Pudding
Banana Slices - about 4-5
Whip Cream
Pudding
Banana slices
and Whip Cream



Aren't they pretty?

I put them in the fridge and then when dinner is not quite ready
cuz I have been quilting
I pull them out and say

"Would you like to start with Dessert first"

and they quit whining,.... just like that!


and they are happy

LOL! I was trying to figure out why you would name a R/W/B quilt "Banana Parfait."

If you want to really drive them crazy, try Paula Dean's Not Yo Mama's Banana Pudding:

Easy to make and fabulous!!!! (I like it better with Nilla Wafers than the Chessman cookies, though.)
