Wow all great ideas! What is banana pudding? I did think of doing banana splits for dessert but that pudding sounds interesting since I dislike scooping ice cream. My daughter took him to a bbq place and said he just loved it.

Would deviled eggs be something? I wanted to start with appetziers.

Just thinking....how does this menu sound

BBQ brisket/fried chicken (oven variety I just saw on this forum)
corn
chili
coleslaw or salad?
potato salad
corn bread

banana pudding (if I find out what it is!)

There will be eight of us.

Well, they have KFC (great fried chicken) in England, and mashed potatoes with onion gravy is incredibly popular. A big favorite being “bangers and mash” (sausages over mashed potatoes and onion gravy).

Chicken fried steak with white gravy, now that would be different!

Elaine, If you buy a box of Nilla Vanilla Wafers (cookies), there is a really good recipe for banana pudding on it. It really just calls for Vanilla pudding mix, bananas and vanilla wafers. I can't remember the amounts but here are 2 hints - always use the cooked kind of pudding, not the instant, and use 2 or 3 times the amount of bananas the recipe calls for. You're gonna love this!!!

oooh! I forgot all about the rolls! Can't have this meal without good, hot, buttered rolls. Oh, my! What a heavenly meal this is!

Oh wow, banana pudding is food from heaven! It’s made with ripe bananas, nilla wafers, a pudding sauce all topped with a meringue, baked and lightly browned. It can be eaten warm or cold. I don’t’ have a recipe since my grandmother always made and I’m not very good at baking (never had much interest in it).

But, a friend of mine made a Banana Pudding following the recipe that is on the box of Nilla Wafers from Nabisco. I haven't looked at a box of Nilla Wafers in a long time, so I don't know if they still put that recipe on there or not.

Maybe someone here has a good recipe....but whatever you do, do NOT use a prefab (out of a box) pudding....you must make the pudding from scratch for it to taste right!

LOL! You've had that recipe too?!?! It's good isn't it. Nearly as good as grand-ma used to make.
