4-H Flashbacks

I was just making some desserts for our function this afternoon/evening and cooking pudding left and right. Something is seriously wrong with whoever submitted the recipe I'm using ... I could do this in a much simpler fashion.
Chocolate pudding. I was in 4-H when I was a younger person. :) I distinctly remember the evening we made chocolate pudding. I really don't remember what all we did with the pudding, but there was pudding galore. The entire kitchen table was covered with bowls of chocolate pudding. I don't remember, but am going to assume that we made some the cook method, others the quick method. We added sprinkles on top. We added any number of things on top of that chocolate pudding. And we taste tested. Every single pudding.
I was seriously traumatized. My chocolate pudding taste buds were so overworked that I, quite honestly, couldn't eat chocolate pudding again for years.
So today I'm cooking chocolate pudding ... and wondering if should lick the pot clean.

I didn't. :)

I do think, tho', that I'll certainly try some of this dessert.

Even if graham crackers float to the top when you pour warm pudding over them. I think they forgot that part of the recipe. Could be a science experiment for Tia. She's loves experiments ... and I love to eat! My camera phone is going to come in mighty handy for the next 24 hours or so .. I'm almost ready to go buy some film!

I love reading your posts even if I
don't comment much. Will see if I can even get on to comment.

The desert wasn't nearly as good as I had hoped it would be. Another one of those "cover it with something better" pages in the cookbook. So ... I won't bother sharing it!

We covered some pudding bowls with wax paper and others were left to cool without. Was it Mrs. Roots that taught the pudding lesson?
