Picnic Today

As I mentioned yesterday, we had a Memorial Day picnic today. All of the local relatives showed up. We had the BBQ ribs (my way), burgers, hot dogs, coleslaw, pasta salad, potato salad, veggie tray and a few other things. My nieces brought baked beans (really yummy!) and deviled eggs and pasta salad. So, we had two of the same pasta salads. The deviled eggs looked nice, but I don't eat them so I couldn't say. However, a lot of them disappeared.

Thanks to my nieces for bringing their goodies. They didn't have to but they like to. : ) They're both good cooks.

I made something different this time. I made a trifle. I was looking for a dessert other than just cookies that I made and froze. So, I got the pound cake I made for strawberries and made it from a recipe from a very old cookbook. Here's how easy it was to make.

Chop up the pound cake into cubes.
Spoon / spread some strawberry jam or jelly on it.
Add some fresh strawberries (my addition because I had them.
Spoon a prepared large package of vanilla pudding over the strawberries. I used sugar-free.
Cover with whipped cream or topping.
Eat and enjoy!

I thought it turned out really well. My young nephew made a comment it was good. That was a compliment!

I hope all of you have a happy and safe Memorial Day. Please celebrate safely.

Take care.
