Colour Pop Trap

You may be asking yourself, “What color lipstick should I wear when I go flying in a private plane?”  I never thought I’d be asking myself that question, but today I had that very question on my mind as I made plans to fly from Rockwall to Terrell in my brother-in-law’s plane.  I decided that Colour Pop Trap was just understated enough not to draw any attention to myself as I climbed aboard this cute little plane!

The flight is about a ten minute flight, which was the perfect amount of time for a first timer like myself.  Strangely, no planes were in the air today.  When we were about to leave, a man came running out to let us know why.  Obama is in town. We had to call in a flight plan to make sure we were safe to fly.   Once we got clearance, we made our way to Terrell, but they gave us some wrong code and when we let them know we were about to land, we found out they were about to call in Secret Service because they didn’t know who we were!! Of course, they worked it out and we landed safely.  I wonder if my lipstick choice was the actual reason they didn’t have send out the Secret Service!! 😉

Easy banana pudding 

This year we volunteered to bring banana pudding to the family Thanksgiving dinner.  I’m not sure what made my husband volunteer for this since neither of us has ever made banana pudding, but he did.  So here it is.  It was a lot easier than I thought it would be.  I’m sure that grandmothers everywhere are shaking their head at us since we went the easy route, but I’m not ready to attempt any of those hard recipes; especially, when this easy recipe is so good.

Ingredients:
1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese (softened)
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk (Fat Free)
1 (5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
3 cups cold milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
4 sliced bananas
12 ounce package vanilla wafers

In a large bowl, beat the cheese until fluffy.  Add in condensed milk, pudding mix, cold milk and vanilla. Beat until smooth.  Fold in 1/2 of the whipped topping.

Line the bowl with vanilla wafers, layer banana slices on top of that.  Put a layer of the 1/2 pudding mix.  Layer wafers, bananas, then pudding.  On top of that cover with vanilla wafers, bananas and top with leftover whipped topping.

Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

YUM!!
