Banana Pudding....

Well with all the snow we got last night (almost 9") I was going to fix some snow ice-cream but after seeing that it isn't going to go anywhere anytime soon I wanted something warm for breakfast at the shop. I always loved Grandma Ruby's Banana Pudding and had all the ingredients (it's a simple receipe) and decided to whip some up! I love fresh made pudding (homemade or box) and nothing beats the cook &serve kind! If you're interested in this here's the super simple receipe.....

Vanilla Wafers (amount depends on what bowl/dish and how many you want)
2 small boxes of Jell-o cook & serve Vanilla Pudding (I like to use the Banana Cream kind too)
4 cups of Milk (I always use whole milk)
2 Bananas

Cook your milk and pudding mix on stove top until done. While you are letting it cool place your vanilla wafers in the bottom of your bowl / pan. Cut up one banana and put on top of the vanilla wafers. Slowly place the pudding on top of the vanilla wafers and banana (I use a big spoon and gently pour so it covers everything nicely. Use about 1/2 of your mixture and cut up the other banana then put the remaining mixture on top. Top with additional vanilla wafers and immediatley wrap with plastic wrap to prevent film on top of the pudding (this will also help the vanilla wafers become soft). Leave out of refridgerator for 30 minutes or so to cool. Grab a bowl and enjoy or place in the refridgerator. It's best to eat within a day as the bananas start to turn brown.

All done and waiting for it to continue to cool! It's little things like this that bring back a great memory.... We miss you Grandma Ruby!
