Recipe Friday: Hurry Home Bacon Dip

Precious Angel, bottom right. He is a cheerleader these days.
Back along time ago, when I was newly married and Precious Angel's daddy was a freshman at Georgia Tech, I would make him banana pudding when he came home for the weekend.

I am all set to make one of Precious Angel's favorite things--if only he were coming home. That is not going to happen for a while because there is a football game every weekend. If you have been with us long here under the Tulip Tree, you will know that I  have spent the last seven or eight falls watching P.A. play football. Well, that is over for me--and him. What is keeping him from me is that he has embarked on a career as a cheerleader. College football just was not going to work out for him and he knew it. "I've got to have me a sport, Miss Jean," he said not long before he left. He plays tennis, but  that is a casual endeavor and he wanted something with  disciplined scheduled practices. Not sure how he hit on cheerleading but  he had learned when preforming in high school musical productions that he could pick a girl up over is head with one hand. So here we are. He can do a cartwheel these days and a back-flip. It makes me nervous--far more nervous that football ever did. I am going to make the journey to see him cheer soon. And if he ever makes it home I am going to make this dip for him.
