There are soooooo many days when I feel like ALL I do is answer questions. At the end of the day I wish I would have tallied the number of questions that were catapulted in my direction. I'd need to hire someone to keep track for me because I am too busy with the ANSWERING OF QUESTIONS. I have noticed that all three of my boys (2 little and 1 big) believe that I can answer all of their inquiries AT THE SAME TIME. They often talk to me simultaneously, expecting me to answer everything like an unflinching robot. I am always so grateful when my reply can satiate at least two inquiries at once. Example (imagine the following statements spoken simultaneously): "MOMMY! Did the underwear I just flung over the railing land on your head?!?!" "Do you have a receipt from the grocery store today?" I happily reply, "YES!" Phew..two birds with one stone.
At the end of the day I am always GRATEFULLY exhausted. I love the questions and the attention, but it can be tiring. The second the little boys are tucked safely into their beds I sink into comfort mode. I immerse myself in work (which I thankfully love) or dig into a yummy dessert or snuggle with my hubby or watch a captivating tv show or movie. THIS dessert is something I have looked forward to devouring for the past few nights. It is SO. GOOD. It alleviates the head-spinning that is caused by a crazy day of question-answering. It is a banana split in a pan. A frozen, delectable pan that you will NOT want to stop eating.
Layer a 9x13 pan with brownies, vanilla ice cream, banana slices, hot fudge sauce, chopped strawberries, caramel sauce and whipped topping.
Cover and pop the pan into the freezer for 4 hours (minimum). Top with cherries, extra banana slices and/or strawberry topping.
Be ready to WOW people with this dessert. Young and old alike LOVE it!
