Mom serves screwed up banana pudding dessert... due to toddler induced insanity
What does this title really mean? First, you must read this: Why a 3 Year Old Can Prohibit Proper Baking
Then, you will understand the title of this post as well as what I am going to write next...
I was distraught. I was frustrated. And I was ready for a glass of wine. By time we went over to my in-laws for Father's Day, I was heavily feeling all three. The melt-downs were at an all time high...for my 3 year old and for ME!
I got through the dreaded banana pudding recipe. Yes, I did. I covered it and placed it in the fridge until it was time to travel to my in-laws house for our Chinese food dinner. The pecan pie looks fabulous, if I might add. The banana pudding sure looked pretty, but how it was going to taste was up for grabs.
Keep in mind, no one was aware of what transpired during the making of the banana pudding. As far as they all knew, I followed the recipe and it was going to be spectacular! (Just as it was the last time I made it.) As the family baker, people come to expect perfection...sad, but true.
Can you guess who liked it the most? My 3 year old! The one who created the recipe havoc to begin with. Such is life!
