Food Friday

I love a trifle. They are so fun and usually always super yummy. I want to make this recipe for my next little shindig. Doesn't it look scrumptious?! Seriously, my mouth is watering.

This was our Valentine's Day dessert. It made me smile. I asked Randall what he wanted and he said "a mousse and a graham cracker". He didn't think I would really serve it to him, but I did! Be careful what you ask for. It was yummy, simple and a crowd pleaser.
I made a box of instant butterscotch pudding. I then added whip cream and cracker crumbs. I found pretty glasses and added the garnish. My boys soaked this up!
It reminded me of my childhood and I wished I had made cook and serve instead of instant. My mama would put chocolate pudding in these pretty little glasses that had a real big silver rim. She would not let us eat it until they cooled all the way. I can remember standing in front of the fridge with the door open, just waiting!
I love this little foodie of mine. He was eating grilled fish and avocado. Only my child would be that excited about such foods. Randall swears he must belong to the UPS man!

Happy Food Friday!

Your mama must have something in common with my mama. She also served up all pudding like foods in pretty cups - her best crystal - and forced us to wait and wait until it was all set. Eating out of a beatiful dish just makes the food taste better.

I had puddings in neat glasses to growing up! How fun! Henry is so cute!
