memorial day parfaitBetween these strawberries and Pennyroyal Tea playing in the background, it seems I split between angst guitar and all things dainty and sweet. Who doesn't like rock and sweets? If you're making your weekend plans filled with friends, music and food - Here's a simple red, white and blue dessert you can whip up for any day! parfait2 The recipe is as easy as it looks. What I used: Fresh strawberries, fresh blueberries, low-fat organic vanilla yogurt, vanilla extract, Banana Nut Clusters cereal with walnuts - All from Trader Joe's. What I did: I added 1/4 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract into 1 cup of the vanilla yogurt and mixed it together. Added a few tablespoons of yogurt to small tea cups (perfect for parties with lots of guests or a snack for one). I chopped my strawberries and added them to the yogurt with a handful of blueberries and a sprinkle of the cereal. And, enjoy!

I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and let us not forget its real purpose. It's a day we have the freedom to enjoy with family and friends because of the sacrifices made by our military men and women.

See you back here next week!
