Mix all fruits in large bowl.  Sprinkle pudding mix over fruits, stir and let stand 5 minutes until thickened.  Fold in Cool Whip.  Refrigerate at least 4 hour before serving.

So, what's for dinner, y'all!?


  1. I wish I could do a menu for the week. It's SO hard to cook for one, which is why I'll get take-out or eat with friends or my parents. One of these days, I'm going to start cooking some more!

  2. I would still like to discuss how cute your handwriting is!!!
