I have been having a lot of trouble with my eyes over the last year and have found out that I will need lazer surgury for Glocoma in the beginning of October. I also needed a new percription for glasses and been putting it off till the weeones went back to school.
I hope it will help me to see better with night time driving,as I can not do that anymore.
As for last night's supper it was DELISH!!!!!!
Jayne has been asking for a boiled dinner for a while now as it is one of her favorites. With this I decided to let the girls help me chop and prepare the veggies for it.
They found new ways to bring a boiled dinner to life.
Not what I had in mind when I asked to help prepare the cabbage for the dinner.
I also decided to try and make a old family favorite recipe for dessert. My Mom use to make these squares when I was growing up. It just hit me the other day when I seen the pudding on sale at the general store.
Pistachio Squares Dessert
36 OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 3 cups)
6 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
2 pkg. (3.4 oz. each) JELL-O Pistachio Flavor Instant Pudding
2 cups cold milk
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed, divided
I used chocolate wafers like mom did.
I pit them into a clear bag and began reaving stress by beating away with my rolling pin.
Then I melted the butter and mixed it with the wafers in a bowl. but keep a little aside to sprinkle on the end.
next spread it out into a 9x13 dish.
then place in the fridge for at least 15 mins. to chill.
While your waiting on that, place your 2 packs of pudding mix together with 2 cups of milk. I used my electric beaters.
now spread it over the crumbs but keep out about a cup or a little more.
That's it, now chill for 4 hours and there you have a rich but yet light dessert.
