This is the college girl and her stately mutt of fine repute. She has a new hair color. pretty isn't it?
Somebody at our house had a birthday. Two somebodies. Papa and Heather Lynn alias Miss Piglet share their birthdays. Nineteen years ago Papa got a phone call that he got a little granddaughter on his birthday. To celebrate I made their favorite deserts, Banana Pudding and Brownies, nothing fancy.
It's easy to make homemade pudding. It doesn't take long and the difference is incredible. No cans or boxes will do. Then let it cool for 10 minutes so the cookies don't disintegrate.
These pictures are all out of order, but ya'll are smart and can figure it out right?
Noble Pig I'm not. So what's all the fuss about meringue? You put the egg whites in your mixer bowl and beat them, honestly. If we had to make them with a fork well that would be a different story altogether. Papa's mother made ice cream with two forks and a tin can, now that is something incredible.
Not to further confuse the issue with this divine beet salad, I'll save it for another post where I might get the photos in a better arrangement. I will however explain the little plate of white stuff and the finely chopped walnuts. That is goat cheese. I made little balls of goat cheese and rolled them in the walnuts. They top the beet salad slightly warmed. Papa said it was enough to drive a man crazy.
