My Birthday Dinner and DessertPosted by Kim on Feb 17, 2013 in Family, Food, General, Holidays, Slider | 2 comments
Yesterday was my 31st birthday! I spent it at home with my sweetie and had a nice dinner and dessert! My parents sent me a few nice cards over Valentines Day and my birthday! It was nice getting calls from family as well even got sang the birthday song a few times What a great day! In the evening we watched a movie and had Trifle! I am going to have to do a big work out in the next few days to make up for the calories but it was worth it! Our first time making a Trifle and it was delicious! We had the Pulled Pork later on as it took a long time for it to smoke but wow was it awesome when it was done! We used a few different spices this time for the brine. Chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and sugar. Yum!:)
For a snack before the big meal later on we had some pickles, sardines with our own mustard and some Presidents Choice Hot Banana Pepper Rings! It was so tasty!
I dressed up a little and painted my toes
We first made the cake for the Trifle, put it in a cookie pan so it would be flat enough to be layered in the bowl!
Then we thawed out our strawberries that we picked last year and made a yummy strawberry sauce with some pectin so it would set in the Trifle!
Next step was the pastry creme
We cut the cake for the layers
We put a layer of pastry creme on the bottom, then cake, then strawberries..
Then pastry creme, then cake..
There it is!
What an awesome birthday dessert!
It looks so delicious and it was!
Here is the pork shoulder after it came off of the smoker!
Look at the smoke ring on the meat!
Complete with special home made BBQ sauce!
Wow lets eat!
