We had a fun, relaxing Easter. I spent the day with the girls shopping at Gateway (downtown SLC) and we rode TRAX to get there. A fun new experience. I am spoiled by the METRO, but TRAX worked out nicely. I hope it becomes a fun new Mother-Daughter-Birthday tradition.
D. and I made these awesome Spring Trifles for dessert! She is such a good baker-sweet treat maker!
2 small packages of Vanilla Pudding (or whatever flavor you like, or have on hand)
3 cups of milk
1 c. sliced berries (we used strawberries)
1 c. sliced bananas
2 c. Honey Bunches of Oats (or other favorite cereal)
1/2 c. shredded coconut (optional)
We used food coloring to color our Vanilla pudding orange, after we'd mixed the pudding powder with the milk. We used 1 less cup than the package directions, making our pudding nice and thick.
In pudding dishes (or plastic cups) layer the pudding, fruit, cereal and coconut. Top with a Peep--really optional, but my kids LOVED them!
Hopefully that will be the fun they remember from this year, and not the 3 hours in the backyard dragging lumber and building garden boxes. We did that too, but that is a whole other post for a whole other day! Maybe they'll be happy about the boxes when there is less weeding to do!
