Right before John's birthday, we received a package from Iris in England (Rachel's friend). I saved the packaging and wrapped John's gift inside. How authentic!

English Birthday Party
YUM!!! English Trifle (recipe below) This weekend, we celebrated John Overman's birthday. Kristel surprised him with an English-themed birthday party. He was happy about that since he served his mission to London. I made an americanized version of an English Trifle and also yorkshire pudding (German pancake) cooked in muffin tins so that people could have an individual serving. I forgot to take pictures of that, but they turned out fun. The trife is unsugared strawberries, angel food cake torn apart and the pudding is a mixture of 2 boxes white choc instant pudding, mixed with 2 cups cool whip (make 1 cup cool whip per box of pudding used). Then, layer it together. This was three layers and I used real whipping cream on the top. YUM!!
