Still Raining

The grandkids wanted a cookout last night, but…….  Rain…its been the story of our lives for forever seems like.  Ok…..maybe a sunny summer dessert will help.  Hey….can’t hurt.


2 cups cold milk

2 pkgs (4-serving size) lemon flavored INSTANT pudding

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 pre-made graham cracker crust

1 8 oz container of whipped topping

2 cups minature marshmallows

2 tbsp milk

Pour 2 cups milk into bowl, add dry mixes and juice.  Beat until well blended and thick.  Spread 1 1/2 cups pudding into bottom of crust.  Add half of the topping to remaining pudding and stir until blended.  Spread over pudding in bottom of crust.  Place marshmallows and remaining milk in microwave bowl and microwave on high until melted.  Let cool and combine with remaining whipped topping.  Spread over pudding mixture and refrigerate until set.

That’s more or less the original recipe from the Jello&Cool Whip Summer Desserts.  Of course I had to change things a bit.  Daughter #2 brought me cook and serve pudding.  So….cooked pudding and used it more or less the same way, but only used one box.  I added lemon zest to the mix before cooking too.

IMG_1486Of course it didn’t come out as pretty as the picture in the magazine, but sure tasted good.  I’m not much of a pudding/jello user, but the marshmallows seemed to have made this very interesting.

Well, heres hoping for better weather.  Not looking so good for today.
