Time for Church Decorations, Family Reunions or a Friendly get together.

When I was a little girl Decoration day at our Church was a big deal.

The men would meet and spread fresh, white sand over the cemetery while the ladies cleaned the church.  The ladies would share what food's they were cooking for the dinner on the ground.  Us kids would put flowers on all the unmarked graves while messing up the fresh, white sand just being spread.  

Everyone had a job.  On that Sunday morning the smell of chicken dressing and a few other heavenly orders would wake you from a dead man's sleep!  One of those heavenly smells would be Mama's Banana  Pudding.  Nothing like Mama's Banana Pudding.  In memory of my Mama,  Gertrude Cunningham Parmer put on your apron and Let's Get Cookin’.

Mama’s Banana Pudding

1 c sugar
2 c milk
3 eggs (yolks--save egg whites in separate bowl for topping)
2 T flour
1-2 ripe but firm bananas
vanilla wafers 

Pour wafers into a 9 x 9 baking dish.  Peel and cut banana's into  wheel
size on top of wafers.  Mix sugar, milk, egg yellow's and flour  together over medium heat until mixture begins to thicken.  Next pour over wafers and  bananas.
Add 1 T sugar to egg white's and beat on high until thick and  fluffy. 
Spread over pudding and bake on 350, watching carefully until light golden brown.


I hope you enjoy!!
