The FedEx guy said he looked at the muddy side and figured it wouldn't be too bad. Wrong.
Two hours later, after no help at all from the mama and kiddos, a fellow FedEx man came to save the day. I had no ability to help so, instead, we just watched. The driver was so nice and friendly, it made me feel that much worse.
We have gravel (and a lot of it) being delivered early next week. Perhaps we can return to good graces with the delivery folks in time for my book order's arrival?
Oh, how I hoped they wouldn't like it... They do. This is the same recipe my mom made for us growing up. My dad still makes it for himself. It is the perfect comfort food and makes a great breakfast!
(Yes... that's a toothbrush in his right hand. Don't ask!)
1 (14 ounce) can EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened
Condensed Milk (NOT evaporated milk)
1 1/2 cups cold water
1 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
2 cups whipping cream, whipped
36 vanilla wafers (I use more...)
3 medium bananas, sliced and dipped in lemon juice
1. In large mixing bowl, combine EAGLE BRAND® and water. Add pudding mix; beat until well blended. Chill 5 minutes.
2. Fold in whipped cream. Spoon 1-cup pudding mixture into 2 1/2-quart glass serving bowl.
3. Top with one-third each of the vanilla wafers, bananas and pudding. Repeat layering twice, ending with pudding mixture. Chill thoroughly. Garnish. Store leftovers covered in refrigerator.
