Last Friday I invited my family over for dinner.
In doing so, I was a bit ambitious as far as my time and my to do list.
Like I had all the time in the world, I planned my menu and decided on fresh salsas, sauces, large batch cocktails, the works- all homemade. Umm... I work all day. Why I thought I had time to do all of this is beyond me. I even got to the gym after work, leaving me less than 2 hours to get my preparations done (including the time that it takes you to realize that even though you thought your house was looking pretty clean, it's not really "company clean")
In what I refer to as Top Chef quick fire/Tazmanian Devil form, I knocked out my to do list and even managed to whip up a quick sneaky little dessert that would have made Food Network's Sandra Lee proud, with my Semi-Homemade Banana Cream Pie Pudding Push Pops.
The secret ingredient:
Layered Banana Cream Pie Pudding, fresh banana slices and crushed 'Nilla Wafers, topped with a little Cool Whip.
