For the evening, we were invited to the Leppkes' house to celebrate Independence Day with a BBQ on the lovely deck built by the men-folk of our circle of friends. (Not surprisingly, the deck withstood it's first of many celebrations.) In typical Lewis fashion, we couldn't take a simple store-bought dessert. Oh no, it had to be something straight from our kitchen. After searching for something light and festive, we settled on a Lemon Curd Berry Trifle that, I must say, was easy enough to make between a 6-mile hike and a BBQ AND delicious! Although I don't have to, I'll go ahead and tell you that we skipped the step of making out own lemon curd and bought jars of lemon curd from the store. I fully intend to try this recipe again this summer and make our own lemon curd, but if you're looking for a quick dessert that looks like it could've taken you all day, this is a good one.
The BBQ itself was great fun, but we always have a good time with the Leppkes, Fisks and Whitneys. :)
