No choice. Going to Brother's house for his birthday dinner. His wife is cooking. She is a dreadful cook. She loves to cook, and she preps for hours, she means well, but she always tries to add something to the dishes to be unique and it ends up not working. Over spiced, undercooked, too much spirit in a sauce, you name it. Sheg et's all "Martha Stewart" on us with the themes. My mother hates going there because she has a weak digestive system and usually has some sort of unpleasant reaction for days after. I mean, who puts two bottles of red wine in roast beef gravy? Oh, well, its always a culinary adventure, if nothing else....

Cooks Tip: When adding vanilla to the cooked banana pudding custard, make sure you use vanilla...NOT mint!! It's gonna make a killer chocolate pudding however... ~~~ Re-made the banana pudding too!!
