Making the Weekly Menu and Patriotic Trifle

Today Frank is having another CPL class.  Only 2 students today so I am just going to give them hotdogs and chips for lunch and, since today is Flag Day, I am going to make a patriotic trifle for them to enjoy and I'm sure there will be enough left for us to enjoy after dinner tonight.  I love making Trifles because they are Easy Peasy and look very elegant.

Patriotic Trifle

1 angel food cake (homemade, store bought or box made)
2 qt. strawberries, hulled and sliced
2 pints blueberries
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1 T. powdered sugar

In large bowl of stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment beat cream and sugar until light and fluffy.

In a trifle bowl, place a layer of sliced strawberries, top with a layer of angel food cake that has been cut or broken into bite size pieces.  Add a layer of blueberries and a layer of whipped cream.  Repeat. Print Recipe 

Tomorrow is Father's day and Amy has invited us over to her house for dinner.

The only other thing on the schedule this week is Food Pantry on Wednesday so Frank will be in charge of dinner.

So with no further ado, here is our menu for this week.  Stop by each day for photos and recipes and join me at Menu Plan Monday and Money Saving Mom for many more menu ideas.
