snug as a bug

it's been a long time... the time i've spent knowing my home was under-insulated and i was heating and cooling the area outside and around my house... but things are different now. i'm 15-25% more energy efficient. and my attic looks like a winter wonderland =)

sunday night dessert:  banana caramel pie!

it was really good, but a little rich =)

Banana Caramel Pie:
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2-3 bananas
1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust (or oreo crust)
1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

Boil unopened can of sweetened condensed milk for 3 hours in a large pot. Check periodically to make sure the water level stays above can while boiling. After 3 hours, remove from pot with tongs and allow to cool 3-4 hours in fridge. Slice bananas into pie crust. Open can of sweetened condensed milk (caramel after boiling) and spread on top of bananas. Spread cool whip on top!
