Fabulous Food Friday!

Good morning everyone! Well, we've made it to Friday ~ woohoo!! The weatherman is calling for some heavy rain for the weekend, but I don't care. I have so much crafting to get done, maybe that will give me the nudge I need to stay home and stay busy!!

For today's recipe, I am sharing a wonderful Banana Pudding recipe that my Mom taught me a long time ago. It is always a big hit whenever I make it and of course, it is super simple!

Banana Pudding

1 large box vanilla or banana flavored instant pudding
Cold milk (see box for quantity)
3-4 large bananas (this is variable ~ if you don't like a lot of bananas, use less)
1 8 oz. container of sour cream
1 large container Cool Whip
1 box vanilla wafers

Make pudding according to directions on the box. Mix sour cream and cool whip with pudding. Layer pudding mix, bananas and wafers in pretty dish until dish is full, ending with a pudding layer. Garnish top with crumbled wafers if desired.

This is such a good recipe. The sour cream cuts down some on the sweetness and along with the cool whip, makes this a creamier pudding. I hope you enjoy it!

I will be announcing details regarding my Easter/Spring giveaway tomorrow morning so be sure to check back then! I am super excited about this one!

Well, gotta get off here and get ready for work. Ugh! Oh well, at least it's Friday!

Until next time. . .
