It was a Wednesday with the Sweet Beans ~

My day complete, immediately following her arrival.
The first thing out of her mouth,
"Yum yums?"
This girl is always ready to eat.

She lined up several of her babies and covered them properly.
Settled in for her morning toons!

After breakfast we got dressed and began our Wednesday baking.

Today it was Banana Pudding Squares,
she couldn't wait to put her apron on :-)


 First she inspects the ingredients...."what's that?"

Roll out vanilla wafers until crushed.

In small bowl mix in the crushed wafers and butter.

Press mixture into the pan. 
Then set in frig while doing the next steps.

Mix softened cream cheese, powdered sugar
and 1 and 1/2 cup of the cool whip until well blended.

No worries it wasn't on without Gramma's hand with hers :-)

Her favorite part of baking!

Spread mixture gently over crust.

Take a moment for a Nilla wafer break.

Slice bananas 

Place on top of mixture

Whisk together Vanilla pudding and cold milk while holding Nilla wafer in other hand.....

Carefully spoon over bananas.
It will look like this :-)

 Spread remaining cool whip over top.
Grate one square of Bakers semi sweet chocolate on top.
She was very good at it, as if she had done it a hundred other times ?

Place in frig for 3 hours.

The Sweet Bean began calling me Gramma (finally) and I heard it all day long . :-)
She pronounces it as, Namma....close enough :-)

Loving my Wednesday's with Sweet Beans....yep, it's what echos from my heart today.


  1. Goodness she is just adorable! The memories of the two of you enjoying your day like that will linger forever in your hearts. Hope you have a good week-end!

  2. How precious! My little Princess sits on my island just like that too. She loves to cook and we need to plan a baking day soon.

    A great post!

  3. She's so cute! Some of the most fun I've had with
    the girls when they were little; helping me cook.
    Enjoy every moment! :)


  4. Sweet Bean is learning how to cook early.
    She is adorable in her wee little apron!
