another food post

sorry for another food post, but I'm trying to figure out what to make for saturday. the thing is, we do an EARLY morning party and then a bbq later. the Bluegrass 10,000 race is every 4th of july and ben always runs in it. we all go to a family friends' house that sits right on the race course and have breakfast and cocktails (yea we drink liquor at 7am). they have it catered but i want to bring a little something. i'm thinking something sweet again this year because we usually stick around until about 11 or so and people will be ready to eat/snack again. 

what do you all think about these options?

Fruit Parfait with yogurt and granola
strawberry shortcake with stars
Red, white and blueberry trifle

I'm thinking the trifle might be good - fresh and light. I'm hesitant to make the parfait bc they are serving breakfast foods. the shortcake i may wait and make for our family bbq that evening. haha sounds like i've already decided! you can get these recipes and other festive 4th of july desserts on Martha's website

Just stumbled upon your blog from Le Petite - so cute! I think the star shortcake is adorable, but my vote is for the trifle - festive, tasty, and relatively easy. Enjoy your summer break from law school! Next summer will be that pesky bar exam - I don't miss my summer of studying for that!!
