Pumpkin Pie’s Birthday

9 Sep

IMG_0548Pumpkin Pie turned 9.

She had a great summer in swim team, and only missed swimming in the finals at A Champs by a tiny bit.  She is the best at taking care of Baby Dumpling.  She practices the piano even if I haven’t given her a lesson in weeks.  She likes helping me cook.  She is her teacher’s best helper in school and at church.

Love her tons!

For her birthday, she wanted trifle.  It was delicious!  Trifle is a great dessert for around the beginning of July when you can still get fresh blueberries and strawberries.  Such a patriotic dessert!

Trifle or “Red, White, and Blue Dessert”

1 plain yellow cake–from a mix or your favorite recipe.  Remind me to share mine sometime.

16 oz strawberries, washed & sliced

3 cups blueberries, washed

3 bananas, sliced

2 cups heavy cream, whipped (or non-dairy whipped topping)

4 boxes of cherry or strawberry jello, prepared

2 large boxes of vanilla pudding, prepared, or this homemade quick pudding

Cut the cake and the jello into cubes.

In a large bowl (4 quart or bigger capacity) layer the ingredients:

1.  Cake

2.  Jello

3.  Pudding

4.  Berries–save a few to sprinkle on top for pretties

5.  Whipped Cream

6.  Sprinkling of berries

Devour the creamy deliciousness and rejoice in how patriotic you have been for the day.
