Don't you Love the Shape of Those Bananas

Why not use them in a classic dessert for your honey?

Fast and easy, banana pudding is layered with vanilla wafer cookies and a rich vanilla pudding for a no-bake dessert that will please the one you love.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk (NOT evaporated milk)
1-1/2 cups cold water
1 (4-serving-size) package instant French vanilla pudding and pie filling mix
2 cups (1 pint) heavy whipping cream
40 vanilla wafers cookies (about)
3 to 4 medium bananas, sliced and dipped in lemon juice from concentrate
4 vanilla wafers, crushed to crumbs for garnish

Preparation:
Combine sweetened condensed milk and water in a large mixing bowl. Add pudding mix and beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Refrigerate pudding mixture for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, whip heavy cream to stiff peaks. Fold whipped cream into chilled pudding mixture until combined.

Select a large (3-quart) decorative glass bowl. Spread 1/2 cup of pudding around the bottom of the bowl and top with one-third of the vanilla wafers, followed by one-third of the bananas and one-third of the remaining pudding. Continue layers, finishing with pudding on top. Sprinkle with crushed vanilla wafer crumbs. Chill at least 4 hours before serving.

Refrigerate leftovers.

Cinco de Mayo Fun

With everyone enjoying the day, why not celebrate with your lover tonight by having nachos at home tonight.

Let him be the bartender and have a blender full of mix drinks



Rum Colins



1 can of lemonade or limeade
1 can of water
1/2 sugar (more or less to taste)
1/2 can of rum (but again more or less to taste)

1 to 2 cups ice.

Blend together until smooth.






Nachos -

1 bag of corn chips

1 bag of shred festive cheese (8oz)

1 can of refried beans

1 pound of ground meat/turkey.

1/2 onion (optional)

Brown onion in about 1 Tbsp of oil and then add meat. Cook until done. Next I add the can of refried beans and stir it up.

Here's where you can be creative, lay out the corn chips on a platter and dollop the meat/bean mixture over the the chips. Sprinkle cheese on top and cook in the microwave until cheese is melted.

Top with sour cream and enjoy,

Anita
