“Just Roll with It” Serving up Recipes and Humor


By Sheri Hopkins, Lifestyle Contributor

Hello everyone! We have had spring, summer and winter this week. Hope everyone has enjoyed spring break. I know all the kiddos have. It usually rains the whole week, so that was a plus for us.

I saw on Facebook where a lot of people went on trips and cruises and looks like they had a great time. As most people know, when you are going to be gone out of state, notify your bank so we can put in a travel so you can use your debit card. There is always a few that don’t do that and that’s who I am going to tell you about this week. He is my nephew. He is smart, and a good person, but…he went out of town a couple years ago and did not notify his bank he was traveling. They could see his wife had used her card out of the state, so the bank blocked their debit cards. Well, my nephew had not used his on the trip, so he had no clue they had blocked the cards, and his wife just thought something was wrong with the debit card machine at the store. He made it back to the lovely state of Arkansas and he decides to take his youngest daughter to Braums for breakfast. They wait in line and finally make it up to the register to order their breakfast and you guessed it, his card was declined. He is telling the cashier he has no clue why it won’t work and in front of everyone in the line and whole restaurant, she says in a real loud voice, “you don’t have any money!” At this time everyone is staring, and my great niece is crying her eyes out at this spectacle he made in Braums. I love telling this story it makes me laugh every time he tells it.

I know y’all know who I am talking about because I only have one nephew that lives close to me that has three daughters. The moral of this story is: make sure when traveling, let your bank ladies know so we can take care of you. If you are wondering, yes, the little girl got her breakfast. He fumbled around and found a credit card and used that. I hope everyone is rested up and ready to get back to the grind on Monday. This recipe is easy as pie, literally. I have not had time to make this recipe, so if you do let me know how it turns out.

1 store bough graham cracker pie crust
1 8 oz. tub of Cool Whip
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 package of Kool-Aid (your choice – lemonade, strawberry, cherry, anything you think would taste good.)
Using a hand mixer, mix the Eagle brand condensed milk and dry Kool-Aid package until well combined. Then fold in the Cool Whip until light and fluffy. Pour it into the pie crust and refrigerate one hour before serving. The flavors are endless, and it is super quick and easy. Have a happy Easter!
