Quick Tiramisu Trifles

quick tiramisu trifle recipeI am typing this from our hotel room in Kansas City on my husband’s net book. This will be short, this teeny tiny keyboard is hard to type on. We had a great weekend being tourists and seeing what Kansas and Missouri have to offer. I love that the whole city smells like smoky wood and barbecue. It might not really, but after a visit to Arthur Bryant’s, I am still dreaming about BBQ. The burnt ends were everything that I was hoping for. Sometimes when you read about something, you get sucked into the hype, and the end result is disappointing. This was not the case.

We are leaving our hotel in Kansas City tomorrow and making our way closer to our new house. The movers cannot deliver our household goods until Friday, so we are trying to keep busy in the meantime. We will clean the house, figure out where everything should go, and tomorrow the cable guy comes. Yeah! We have not had cable in over a year, so we are excited to watch TV on an actual TV, not a laptop.

This quick tiramisu is a delight. It is really easy, sometimes tiramisu can be involved, but if you can whip, dunk, and layer, you are in for a treat.
