Tonight the Legion of Boom kick things off with a home game against the Packers, and we'll be kicking the season off here at home, with a few (Twelve? Fourteen? Oh, I've lost count.) of our friends crammed into the living room to watch the game on the big screen.
We'll be having my homemade chili with all the fixins at halftime, and there will be no shortage of sideline comentary going on throughout the the entiregame.
Oh yes, football season has arrived, ans the 12th Man is alive and well in sweet little Camas.
When I was out thrifting this past weekend, I scored a set of the most charming parfait glasses, and I could hardly wait to break them in.
I whipped up a batch of banana pudding parfaits, which until recently, I assumed all Mom's in America had in their dessert recipe arsenal.
It turns out that a lot of folks here in the Pacific Northwest don't know about it.
So I thought I'd share it here today.
It's easy peasy, an takes only a few minutes to make. Simply take on package of instant banana pudding (make it according to directions and place in the refrigerator. Cut up one banana and open a box of Nilla Wafer cookies. (Now, I usually serve this yummy dessert all on one larger bowl, with the original sized Nilla Wafer Cookies, but for the cutie patootie parfait glases, the mini Nilla Wafers were a no-brainer.) Layer the banana slices, nilla wafer cookies, and pudding.
It's total comfort food.
Have you ever made this dessert, or some version of it?
