Okay, I know I am supposed to be posting my guest bedroom for Kelly's Korner tonight, but I just cannot. A banana pudding pie has officially kicked my booty. I did not go to the graduation tonight at the urging of Mom and my SIL. They were supposed to have storms in addition to the other issues I was having with the trip and they asked if it would hurt my feelings to stay home. I thought that by NOT going, I would be hurting their feelings... so I stayed home.
The pie, the pie.... No, I did not eat the WHOLE pie. I am only eating a small piece now. It was the MAKING of the pie that did me in! This is a complicated thing to concoct. It took all sorts of bowls and all of my measuring spoons and a real vanilla bean pod! (Josh said that "it took a whole dishwasher full of dishes to make it). Thank goodness I knew what to do with some of the weird parts of the recipe courtesy of the white chocolate bread pudding I make! Anyway, Josh LOVES banana pudding and I thought this would be such a nice surprise to end his week. I got the recipe out of the May 2009 Country Living magazine. It is really, really good. It tastes like breyers vanilla bean ice cream! Here is the LINK
