strawberry trifles for dessert and a bbq

last night we had a bbq in our very own backyard!  tt has been working so hard to get new sod, and redo our deck in time for us to enjoy it this summer.  success! i came home from work yesterday to a freshly painted deck with a bbq just waiting to be put to good use.  i decided to put myself to good use and make this trifle i've been craving ever since Alison of TheAlisonShow posted it on her blog.  i was so surprised at how simple and how few ingredients it called for!  and it helps that strawberries are so delicious and sweet and on their own right now.
 tt grilling up some very tasty burgers.

jane brought the most delicious (and light!) pasta salad.  
burgers. fries. GOOD watermelon. diet coke. all the fixings of a good bbq.

and in true fashion - please note the giant bowl of fry sauce in the middle of the table.  i might add it was gone by the time dinner was finished! 


  1. your pictures are incredible. that dessert was so amazing - and so were the burgers. best night!!

  2. That looks yummy and we need to make those hamburgers soon! The trifle was delicious, thanks for contributing it to our bbq of which you didn't even get to attend. You're the best!!! Pictures amazing as usual.
