Banana Pudding is cooling
Squash picked from garden and if rain does not arrive soon - it is finished
Cherry's from the local market have been exceptional.
Banana Pudding Recipe - is so easy
1 cup of sugar or 3/4 - if using crushed pineapple you might want the 3/4 cup
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup of flour
2 cups of milk
3 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla Stir all together and add to double boiler. Stirring constantly until thick.
Cool a few minutes and add l tbsp of butter and small can of drained crushed pineapple
Spray a medium Pyrex dish, bottom and sides are lined with Vanilla Wafers
1/3 of pudding over bottom and
add sliced bananas, more pudding, then more bananas and pudding mixture on top.
Meringue - beat 3 egg whites until stiff peaks surface and slowly add 1/4 cup sugar and
1/2 tsp vanilla ----preheat-350 degree oven until slightly brown on top - takes about 5 to 10 minutes.
Many times in the past I would also layer the Vanilla Wafers with the bananas and pudding mix
throughout the dish
makes a more sizable dish
but just wanted them as a crust this time
Not expecting company and this is just my desert for a few days. In fact with the high temperatures
my appetite is not very hearty. Last night just ate a bowl of the pudding with sliced almonds on top
and a glass of milk for evening meal.
UPDATE - noticed yesterday the birds had left their nest by the garage. Must be too hot - good.
I stood on the deck with hose on high and washed the nest down.
