Go Bananas!

I love sweets of all kinds, and we tend to always have some sort of dessert in our house.  Caleb and I both grew up always having dessert, and he's convinced me that it is A-okay to continue it.  It's usually something simple like cookies from a box or Publix brand frozen yogurt.  So it's still a special treat when we have a homemade dessert.

Well, this week I made banana pudding.  It was actually for Bible study on Tuesday night, but it ended up being cancelled because everybody's kiddos were sick.  (I hope I didn't share my sinus/ear infection last week!)

So what does that mean for us?  We have a whole banana pudding to enjoy.  We ended up sharing it with my parents and brothers so we wouldn't be too tempted, but here's the yummy recipe (from my Mama).

1 box vanilla wafers
3-4 bananas
2 large boxes instant Vanilla pudding
5 cups milk
8 oz. sour cream
1 large whipped topping

In large bowl, mix pudding and milk.  Then add sour cream and 1/2 of whipped topping.  Place vanilla wafers on bottom of dish and cover with sliced bananas.  Pour in pudding mixture.  Top with whipped topping!

And yum!  There are lots of variations our there for Banana Pudding, but for some reason, this one is my fave.  And so easy : )

sounds yummy! instead of vanilla wafers, try it with nutter butters (for an unhealthy twist!) it's so good!
