We were asked to bring English trifle to a Christmas Eve celebration. While assembling the traditional dessert, I was also helping my husband solve a mammoth crossword puzzle, spouting brilliant answers to clue after esoteric clue.
When I looked at my finished product, I realized I’d forgotten to put both fruit and sherry on the last of three layers. Undaunted, I dumped everything on top and called it upside-down trifle.
My husband freaked out as we had to transport that sucker across town, and it was overflowing the fancy bowl I’d borrowed.
It’s official. I can no longer multi-task.
Here’s what it ended up looking like.
Not too shabby, right?
