(Wednesday Reminds Me Of A Long And Windy Road)
I have our church supper and service tonight. I didn't sign up to take food this week, although I'm helping to set it up and clean it up after. I am going to take a tub of tuna salad that I will make this morning and a couple loaves of bread and I'm going to put together a trifle that is a family favorite. Just in case, because last week more people than I signed up to bring sandwiches, and I was the only one that did, so had I not, we would not have had any. I think someone that signed up ended up ill and didn't come. So, just to be on the safe side, I'm going to take a couple of things. It's not like they won't get eaten either at church or at home! haha
My husband is bringing home pallets from work and I am so excited with all the things we can do with them! First we want to do our ceilings, I love this look, it's so rustic and warm. There are a million and one things to do with pallets. I can't wait to start making things around here with them. Doing a floor in them is another amazing idea! I just want everything made out of pallets these days! haha
I'm off to trudge through this Wallowing Wednesday, but I shall leave you with one sweet reminder of happiness, my trifle recipe!
One vanilla or yellow cake mix, prepared according to the directions on the package
2 tubs of cool whip or one large super size tub
2 cans mandarin oranges
Bake the cake according to the package directions in a 9 x 13 pan. Let cool. Mix all the oranges with the juice into the cool whip. Break up the cake and crumble a layer on the bottom of a large bowl. I use a clear bowl so the layers show through. Add a light layer of the fruit mixed cool whip over the cake, repeat until all the cool whip is used. I like to spread cool whip or use spray whip topping over the top and then with a reserved hand full of cake crumbles just lightly dust the top. You can add an additional can of mandarin orange slices over the top for garnish as well. This is a family favorite. It is light and tasty and just the right amount of sweetness after a meal. Enjoy!
