Chocolate cream pie - In a box. Seriously!
OK I have done it yet again and completely ignore my previous post about being able to make it if it's in a box. Because I have proved that wrong.
Here we go.
Yap you are seeing this correctly. Everything I needed was here in this box. I haven't had time to go to the store to get stuff to try the banana cream pie again. I had this in the cabinet and decided hm I can do this. How hard could it be? Everything went to a T. I made the pre-packaged crust turned out OK. Then I mixed the INSTANT chocolate pudding. Then the last step mix the whipped topping. HA HA HA HA Right because that's going to work! Here is my whipped topping.
I sat there and whipped the hell out of this cream. I sat there from 4:03 till 4:19 it only called for 3 min. It did not want to budge. I mean what is it? I think all the desserts in the world are joining an alliance against me. It's like they sit there and say "oh yeah lets make her think she has got this. Then BAM we will take her out just as she thinks she has won." I mean I know I have my "chicken of the sea moments"(my word for blonde.) but come on...
So the girls again standing around going
"Mommy what did you do now." Err. Evil children.. At this point I throw in the towel and admit defeat and sit my plump butt down on the couch. Then out of nowhere DING! The light goes off. (it usually takes awhile for this to happen.) ha ha little evil dessert creatures who try to bring me down every time.
take that beaches - Reddi wip does this girl good.. So as it may not be as good as the original, it's still pie like it or not!
Banana Cream Goat cheese?
OK y'all I am not a baker. I can cook meals like no other. I am pretty good at that but baking as in desserts, unless in comes in a box I suck grass hoppers. Now my Hubby on the other hand is our baker in the Family. He makes all the pies for the holidays. He makes his own crust and it is wonderful. I will put the recipe for his crust up when I go to try again on my pie..
So you don't believe me? You ask how can on mess up Banana Cream Pie? Hm well this girl CAN do it!
Example number 1.
My first attempt at Banana Cream Pie ~
OK there is nothing about this that looks good at all. I was so excited this morning to get up and check it out and decorate it. I get up open the fridge to see a complete massacre. I mean really how do you mess this up? My hubby has been making fun of me all day. The girls keep rubbing it in my face by saying "Mommy what did you do to it?"
BOX you ask? Jennifer pudding comes in a box. That's all you had to do. Cut up two Bananas and a 6 serving box of instant pudding, and whip cream. Where did you go wrong?
I have felt like pure crap about this. Well me and my Hubby are sitting here and I was telling him "Well I guess I can start a blog post about my mess up baking adventures." Then laughing he looks at me and says " Jenn it may not have been that bad, I bought the cook and serve instead of the instant."
Umm What!!!!! No he didn't.. This is the time when I want to throw that raccoon pee in his face! You know I would but I can't really be mad at him because as I know nothing about this I don't even know if that is wrong or not. LMAO.
This woman needs HELLLLLPPPP!
