Back in December we were invited to a dinner celebration we couldn't attend, due to being out of town for the holidays. Then we were notified that it would be rescheduled, because so few people could attend. Sunday, while at church, I was asked if I had received an email from the host. I hadn't, and apparently the dinner was that night.
Because I like food and I might be slightly competitive, I knew I had to make something good with just the things in our house. The husband and I shared ideas and then I struck gold: a trifle, of course! Pretty easy to assemble and big on the presentation points. Despite taking cake decorating classes, I couldn't decorate a cake well enough to compete with the looks of a trifle. Not to mention the effort of decorating a cake is much, much greater than layering ingredients in a bowl.
