I need your help…keep reading.
Just picture it, a warm summer day in the park, under a big oak tree, overlooking the serene eastern coastline. The tide rolling in, the hum of cicadas, and the laughter of children. This is what I picture as my perfect summer day. And, if you want to know where this picture came from, it’s a real place. 😀
The only thing that’s missing is food. The outing will only be complete with a scrumptious picnic. One with lemonades, cold slaw, fruit, pimento cheese sandwiches, and chocolate. These chocolate trifle jars, to be exact!
You can’t really mess them up and you can be creative with how you layer them. Plus, everything is more fun when eaten from a jar! 😉
It was so easy to whip up and pop in the cooler (or refrigerator) until you’re ready to dive in!
The winner receives $500 and a year-supply of PCC in a variety of flavors (12 gratuity coupons)!!!!!!!!!!
