Mother’s Day Picnic with Ann Marie Orr 

Fruit parfait or a fruit trifle

Difference: parfaits are in individual glasses and a trifle is in a large, clear glass container


Lots of fresh fruit

Berries are best, along with mango, cantaloupe, pineapple, and grapes…

16 oz Whipped cream

6-8 oz of your favorite yogurt

Angle food cake or pound cake —cubed &amp: toasted


Toast cubes of cake @ 350 for 5 minutes—keep your eye on it-they burn quick

Fold yogurt into the whipped cream

Cut fruit into cubes or slices

Layer in clear glass container, begin with fruit and continue until full!


Tomato &amp: cucumber salad

Use chopped tomatoes or cherry tomatoes cut in

Use English or regular cucumbers-cut down the center then sliced in inch chunks


Sprinkle with sea salt &amp: fresh pepper

Add loosely chopped snow peas, shallots, baby carrots, bell peppers …

Toss lightly

Add favorite seasoned Italian dressing

Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese

Refrigerate until serving
