148 Days until Fat Tuesday

148 days until Fat Tuesday but we all know that the parades begin long before Fat Tuesday.

This year the parades begin January 26th and run through Fat Tuesday (February 13th).  Check here for the latest parade updates.

We are starting to plan our trip down for the festivities.  Since we have moved to Pennsylvania, we will be flying into New Orleans and renting a car.  Last year, we drove and spent half of our time in Mobile then the other half across the bay at Daphne.  We have started our search early this year at for accommodations since accommodations go quickly during the days around Fat Tuesday.

It is a celebration and people come from all over. Many come for a day trip while others like myself come for several days leading up to the big day.




Moon Pie Banana Pudding Shots


Just this week in Middle Tennessee, we were in the path for the Eclipse and my friend had an Eclipse party featuring amongst other edibles, Moon Pie Banana Pudding Shots which were delicious!  Here’s the recipe for these Moon Pie deliciousness.

Moon Pie Banana Pudding Shots:

1- (12 count) package Mini Moon Pies

1 Cup Sour Cream

3 Cups prepared Instant Vanilla Pudding

5 or 6 Bananas

Juice of 2 Lemons

1 Cup Heavy Cream, whipped (about 3 Cups) or your favorite equivalent

Chop the Moon Pies into bite-size pieces. In a medium bowl mix the sour cream and vanilla pudding and set aside.  Slice the bananas and toss with the lemon juice in another medium bowl.

In a trifle bowl or other serving bowl, layer Moon Pies, pudding, bananas the more pudding.  Repeat the layering, ending with pudding on top.  Serve immediately or refrigerate up to a day.  Top with the whipped cream just before serving.

To serve in mini parfait glasses, layer the ingredients directly into the glasses.

Makes about 24 (40-ounce) servings.



And if you decide you would like to have the creator’s recipe, you can order her book on Amazon.  She offers it in digital format or hardcover and this cookbook is full of some southern deliciousness!  Highly Recommend!
