Grants Farm Visit

One of the GREAT things about living in St. Louis is there is so much GREAT stuff to do! With the BEAUTIFUL weather we had on Sunday, Mom and I took Allison (my youngest) and her best friend Sarah to Grants Farm.

If you haven't been, or if you ever come to St. Louis to visit, I would highly recommend going! Admission is free, just $10 per car load to park.

Once owned by Ulysses S. Grant, Grants Farm is now owned by the Busch Family. They have come together to bring the most entertaining family adventure. You can see exotic animals, famous Clydesdale horses, historical features of horses, carriages, families, Budweiser Courtyard, and gift shops. Also elephant education and animal encounter shows throughout the day. A tram brings you in thru Deer Park and drops you off to enjoy the rest of the farm and picks you up when you are ready to leave. Don't forget to enjoy your complimentary Anheuser-Busch products while you're there! LOL

I just wanted to share our fabulous day! If you'd like to share how you enjoyed your weekend, just leave a comment, we'd love to hear about it!!

The Magical Pudding "Pie" Dessert

I used to make desserts and goodies all the time! I enjoyed making them and my Dad enjoyed devouring them! Since Dad passed away and I have put on a few pounds over the years, I don't make as many desserts as I used to.

A few weeks ago I was really craving some pie (so NOT on my diet!) when I ran across this recipe for a low cal pie and thought I would give it a try. So last week I decided to make The Magical Pudding "Pie" Dessert. What makes this dessert "magical" is after sitting the required amount of time, the saltine crackers taste just like a phyllo dough! It's an amazing dessert, and good for the dieter or non-dieter (my daughters gobbled it up!)

So here's the recipe...............I hope you enjoy it as much as we did (next time I'm going to make butterscotch, that was always one of Dad's favorites!)


1 (1.4 oz.) Package Sugar Free Chocolate Instant Pudding (or your favorite flavor)
2 Cups Skim Milk
32 Salted-Top Saltine Crackers
1 (8 oz.) Container Fat Free Cool Whip

Mix the instant pudding and milk together and place into the refrigerator 10 minutes.
Place 16 crackers in the bottom of an 8X8 pan.
Spoon half of the pudding mixture on top of the crackers, spreading evenly.
Place the other 16 crackers on top of the pudding, and then spoon the other half of the pudding mixture on top of the last set of crackers.
Top with the whole container of cool whip.
Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 24 hours.

Number of Servings: 6
