There is one Southern Staple that I never turn away from. It is the one food, I think, everyone can delight in. From little babies with no teeth to one hundred and three year olds with, well, no teeth! Grown men cannot turn away from it and women say, “Well I’ll have a smidge.”
You can make it the long way or the short way. It can be laden down with fat and calories or made into a nice neat pretty-good-for-you dish.
I can make a list of two – two women who made it and I ate heaping spoon fulls of it as I grew up. They generally made it for church gatherings. I miss those old school church gatherings.
My Mamaw made it over the stove. My aunt makes it diabetic friendly. It tastes like summer in the middle of winter. It is happiness and smiles and makes an OK day a fabulous event.
It is banana pudding.
My little recipe for this dish:
