Sexy Cowboy Pictures, Images and Photos
This weekend in the US is the official kick-off of summer!  A lot of us plan picnics, gatherings or other group activities.  Here's a quick, but elegant looking dessert to take along.

Strawberries and Cream Dessert


1 (14-oz can) Sweetened Condensed Milk
1½ cup cold water
1 (4 serving-size) package instant vanilla pudding
2 cups whipping cream, whipped
1 (12-oz) prepared pound cake, cut into cubes
4 cups sliced fresh strawberries
¼ cup strawberry preserves


In a large bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk and water. Mix well. Add pudding mix and beat until well blended. Chill 5 minutes. Fold in whipping cream.

Spoon 2 cups of mixture into a 4-quart round glass serving bowl; top with half the cake cubes, 2 cups strawberries and half the preserves and half the remaining pudding mixture. Repeat layers, topping with remaining pudding.

Garnish with additional strawberries. Chill 4 hours or until set. Refrigerate any leftovers, covered.

Makes 10 to 12 servings.

Mmmm...this sounds good! I'll have to try it, since strawberry season is here.

The eye candy's good too!
