Banana pudding causes stir at work

Before I give you this week's recipe, I want to brag about the Christian gentleman that is taking care of our yard now.

When my son-in-law, Herb, explained because of his many church obligations, he could no longer maintain our yard, my only recourse was to call our church, Minden First Baptist, to see if they knew of anyone that could help us with this problem. That is how this wonderful Christian became the answer to our dilemma.

He does an excellent job, is willing to handle any special requests, has a Christ like disposition and his charge is very reasonable. If you need a high standard yard keeper, I highly recommend him. I have already referred him to two satisfied clients.

If interested in contacting him, give me a call at 299-3481.

Now here is this week's recipe. It is from my son, Dwight Stewart. As I have told you before he and I often exchange recipes. Dwight works at a Seton Hospital in Kyle, Texas. He is a computer guru and responsible in training doctors and nurses in how to use the hospital's computer programs.

Dwight said that many times different employees will bring some kind of homemade treat to share. He said that one day one of the employees named Juliana Danz brought this banana pudding dessert to work. Dwight said employees were gathered around the dessert competing for a bowl of it, but he just took a small portion to taste.

Right away he returned to the pudding dessert and joined in the battle for a larger serving. This is totally unusual for Dwight as he is more of a meat and potato person and usually not fond of sweets.

In reviewing the recipe Dwight sent, I recall I had a similar recipe in my files. The only difference was in addition to the bananas, the recipe called for a 15 and one-half ounce can of crushed pineapple, drained. It also said you could use either vanilla or banana cream pudding mix and either vanilla or chocolate wafers.

Juliana's Banana Pudding

1 large box vanilla instant pudding mix

1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk, add enough regular milk to equal 3 cups

1 container of whipped topping (amount not specified)

1 box of vanilla wafer cookies

2 – 3 sliced bananas

Mix together the pudding mix, milk(s), and whipped topping. Layer the cookies, bananas and filling. If any is leftover, refrigerate.
