    Whew! What a weekend.  AHH!  Sorry for the yelling. But, it was  quite a weekend.

    Saturday, major cleaning day  My house was a disaster.  I’m not sure why or how it got this way, but it was in desperate need of a clean up. Then,two kids sick.  Stomach aches and fatigue. They hit the couches, but,  it was enough to worry about more sick kids  and then, missing a very big day on Sunday.

    Then this pudding. It’s delicious, but, geez, it was a project. Mine own screw up, but, added some time to a very simple endeavor.  Next: every one’s favorite. The time change.  I can not express to you how much the time change and I do not get along.  Life is so exhausting for a week. Crabby kids, crabby me. It’s such fun.

    We make it to Sunday.

    We are up early (6 am, but, actually feels like 5 am thanks to the time change).  My daughter is competing in the Special Olympics Rhythmic Gymnastics competition and has to arrive at a facility an hour away from our house at 730 am. This means leaving at 630 am ( feels like 530 am thanks to time change).  Everyone is cranky, tired, hungry, but, luckily, healthy.  The weird stomach sickness has vanished,but, the underlying fear of somebody tossing their cookies at this event lingers in my brain.

    It was a long, emotional day, but, ended on such a huge high note:   2. Yes, TWO gold medals. So proud! We are headed to the state games this summer.  Wohoo! or Bravo! as my 5 year old shouted at his older sister all day.

    Isn’t she adorable? ( and she was a bit exhausted too 🙂

    So, pudding.  I purchased instant chocolate pudding for this.  I added the pudding and milk together and whisked it up and waited. Nothing happened. I did again. Seriously, I whisked this for about 5 minutes twice and left it in the fridge for about 30 minutes.  What?? It’s instant pudding Erin! Not too difficult.

    I doubled checked the package and then my “oh!” moment hit me.  It wasn’t instant pudding.  It was cook and serve.  I cooked it up and used.  It was delicious, but, you can use instant.  It’s quicker, because, well, it’s instant.

    Serve it up in a big bowl or divide into some snazzy individuals for a quick dessert.

    {to lighten this up, use sugar free pudding, low fat cream cheese and low fat whipped topping}
