I used my fancy trifle dish for the first time! (Let's try not to remember how many years I've had it, nor why I spent $50 on it at one of those Southern Living parties to begin with...) Happily it turned out pretty and delicious!
I asked Dave what he wanted for dessert and he suggested a strawberry shortcake trifle. I didn't really know what I was doing but I winged it on the "recipe" and it was a success!
I layered half a package of strawberry Jell-o, cubed angel-food cake, half a package of cook-and-serve vanilla pudding, and fresh-cut strawberries and then repeated the layers. I refrigerated it overnight so it could all gel together and added whipped cream to each plate before serving. Easy and yummy!
