We watched Dodgeball (always a good choice) and played Disney Trivial Pursuit. We actually learned a lot of new info about Disney. By the way, I can’t even begin to describe how excited I am about the expansion at The Magic Kingdom! When I was at Disney in May with my family you could see the construction and the anticipation is building and building! They’ve announced that the grand opening will be December 6. I wish I could go!


Pudding Parfaits


I want to start off by apologizing for my lack of posts this past month. Life has been super busy and packed full of things to do and places to go. I’m hoping to get back on track with more regular posting again and hope that you will continue to read! I enjoy getting comments and feedback and knowing that there are people out there who like my recipes and ideas! 🙂

I’d like to post today about one of the most versatile foods…pudding! It doesn’t matter how old you are. I have always loved pudding. My favorite kinds are banana, butterscotch, and oreo. I’m drooling already thinking about pudding haha! The following recipe can be made with any type of pudding, and whatever kind of toppings that you can think of. I made this recipe for St. Patrick’s Day at school and the kids loved it. It’s super easy to make and super yummy!

Pudding Parfait / Leprechaun Pie

2 boxes pudding – flavor of your choosing (for this one I used Oreo pudding)
green food coloring
Lucky Charms cereal
Reddi Whip
green sprinkles
Oreo cookies
chocolate coins
plastic cups

Prepare your plastic cups and drop a golden wrapped chocolate coin on the bottom of each cup.
Prepare pudding as directed on the box.
Add food coloring drop by drop until you get the desired shade of green.
Fill each cup with equal amounts of pudding and put in fridge until set.
When ready to serve, top with a layer of Lucky Charms cereal.

Then continue with Reddi Whip, sprinkles, and an Oreo cookie on top.

Try not to eat all of them…sharing is caring 😉 Woohoo I’m back!!!
