Memorial Day Trifle

 I just wanted to show you the dessert my daughter and I made yesterday for Memorial Day..we saw this idea here on Pinterest .

 This all started by running through our local mall on Sunday evening trying to find a trifle dish .. we finally found one with a few minutes to spare until all the stores closed :)
 We bought a frozen Sara Lee pound cake and cut it lengthwise into about 3/4 inch slices... Mixed up a batch of whipped cream with a little sugar.. cut the strawberries into thirds lengthwise , added the blueberries and a little sugar.
 We started the layers by adding whip cream , some of the pound cake scraps , berries then tried to place the pound cake stars around the sides .
 We kept it in the refridgerator until it was time to eat . It was so good ! Can't wait to make it again :)

 There is a sneak peek of my newest table runner. I haven't been able to finish it yet , I have been so busy , but it will be coming soon , and I think it is my all time favorite !
 This was our weather yesterday , gloomy and chilly ..I think it is going to rain all week !
 Photo op with the baby :)
 We took Mr. Adorable for ice cream .. I think he liked it !!
Hope you all had a nice weekend with family and friends !

Thanks as always for stopping by and your nice comments !

What a great idea for a patriotic (and healthy!) dessert, Priscilla. I just love this time of year with all the fresh berries :)

Hope your older grandson is back home soon!

The cake cut in star shapes is such an awesome idea!

I host a weekly link party called "Seasonal Sundays". This week, in honor of my fourth blog-a-versary, I'm having a giveaway of a $100.00 gift certificate to HomeGoods/TJ Maxx. I'd love to have you join the fun!
