When the guys came back, I took out the dessert which I had prepared 24 hours previously. (see picture at top of post) This dessert is called "Chocolate Eclair" and is quite delicious. It is also a favorite of my grandson, Daniel. The first time I ate it was at the home of my daughter, Carol. She always prepares it for Daniel when she knows he will be coming home for a visit. I served the Chocolate Eclair with fresh strawberries to accompany it.
Needless to say, when we got through with the dessert a little bit later, only a small amount of it remained. It can be safely eaten by diabetics, because I used sugar free ingredients in most of it. For those of you who would like the recipe, here it is (courtesy of Carol).
2 small pkgs of sugar free vanilla instant pudding
3 cups cold milk (low fat)
1- 8 oz container of cool whip (sugar free)
1 container reduced sugar fudge cake frosting (heat frosting in container for 30 seconds in microwave and stir to thoroughly mix)
box chocolate graham crackers
Mix together instant pudding, milk, then add thawed cool whip. Place layer of grahams in serving dish, add layer of pudding/cool whip mixture, another layer of grahams,layer of frosting. If you wish to use a 9x13 glass dish to serve it in, stop there. If you wish to use a compote, as I did, continue with your layering until your cool whip mixture and fudge frosting are used up, and end with a few crumbs of graham crackers on top of last layer of fudge. Yum, yum.(The compote dish came from Wal-mart, really inexpensive)

A wonderful time was had by all, and after spending some time on the computer, I went to bed, knowing my kitchen wouldn't be a living nightmare when I got up this morning.
That is all from Blabbin' Grammy today - Hope you all have a wonderful day, and God Bless each of you and yours. Bye for now.
