Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
FROM GLENDA: It became a "family saying" that Grandmother was making a "mess" when she made special things such as her famous banana pudding. She would get aggravated with herself and say, "I've just made a mess" because she would think she had really messed it up. It seemed like it would always turn out that the bigger she thought the "mess" was, the tastier it was! So, kids, have fun making a "mess" with this recipe.
