What do mediports and banana pudding have in common? They are the top two search engine queries that drive traffic to my blog! I can understand the mediport being one of the top searches. And actually, if you go on google images and type in “mediport” the first image that shows up links you to my blog (http://survivingsarcoma.com/?p=1188).
Talk about some great accidental SEO!
But I am surprised that banana pudding brings in so many people. To play to my audience however, I will go with it, and give more info on our delicious banana pudding. This is the absolute best banana pudding recipe. Nothing else comes close. The only thing you should change on this recipe is to double the custard. The custard is the best part and when it gets into the nilla wafers and turns them into a delicious mush, you will be glad you did!
Here is the banana pudding recipe:
MIX 1/2 cup sugar, flour and salt in top of double boiler. Blend in 3 egg yolks and milk. Cook, uncovered, over boiling water 10 to 12 min. or until thickened, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.
RESERVE 12 wafers for garnish. Spread small amount of custard onto bottom of 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Cover with layers of 1/3each of the remaining wafers, bananas and remaining custard. Repeat layers 2 times.
BEAT egg whites on high speed of mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in remaining sugar until stiff peaks form. Spread over custard, sealing well to edge of dish.
BAKE 15 to 20 min. or until lightly browned. Cool slightly. Top with reserved wafers just before serving.
I prefer my banana pudding cold out of the fridge. It’s hard not to eat it right after it is done, but there are few things on this planet I like more than cold banana pudding made with this recipe. As I said before, nothing else can compare!
In other news, I am in the process of getting a new socket made and have walked around this week for the first time in 9 months! I can’t believe it’s been that long! I’m excited to finally get back on my prosthesis and hope to be back on it full time soon. The convenience of not constantly having your hands full of crutches can not be overly emphasized. It is a different world on a prosthesis and I hope to be taking advantage again soon!
To the left is a picture showing part of the process we go through when fitting a socket. After we get a good fit, we attach my CLeg to the bottom of the test socket and then I am off and walking!
