6 to 8 bananas, sliced
2 cups milk
1 (5oz) box instant French vanilla pudding
1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12oz) container frozen cool whip, thawed
Line the bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch dish with 1 bag of cookies and layer bananas on top.
In a bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix and blend well using a handheld electric mixer. Using another bowl, combine the cream cheese and condensed milk together and mix until smooth. Fold the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture. Add the cream cheese mixture to the pudding mixture and stir until well blended. Pour the mixture over the cookies and bananas and cover with the remaining cookies. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
The spicy chicken sandwich was really spicy, even for Scot, who is known to eat the spiciest wings that he can find. I actually enjoyed it but was happy I had my diet fresh squeezed lemonade at hand too! I brought this hat back for Ryder to, which he seemed to like too. All in all it was a fun day and we relaxed the rest of the day before having to head back to work.
I know that Memorial Day isn't just about eating. It does make me appreciate all the selfless ways that the service men and women of our country gave their life so that we could live in a free country. Having grandparents who were in World War II, it does make me appreciate the things they did even more. I love spending time with my Grannie, and asking her what her days as an army nurse was like. She has so many stories to tell, and so many songs to sing from her war days that it makes it seem like maybe there were good times to be had too.
Happy Memorial Day Everyone!!
