Trifled with Again

 I wasn't going to do another trifle.
I wasn't.
But this, honestly, is the one I can't resist.
And I'm a chocoholic.
I usually don't even taste the desserts we make, letting my Test Panel of Minions be the judges of deliciousness.
I've had two helpings of this sucker, including one at midnight last night.
The best part? It's weeknight quick and easy. Get your shopping list ready.
You'll need:
4 pints of fresh strawberries
1 loaf of pound cake
2 eight ounce packages of cream cheese
3 boxes of cheesecake flavor instant pudding
4 cups of 2 % milk
1 sixteen ounce tub of fat free non-dairy whipped topping
Bring the cream cheese to room temperature and then beat it with a mixer until fluffy. Add the pudding mix and milk and beat until smooth. fold in 2/3 of the whipped topping.
Wash, hull, and thinly slice the strawberries.
Cut the cake into 16 slices.
Take the tomatoes out of your trifle bowl and wash it. If you weren't storing tomatoes in your trifle bowl, you can skip this step. You know, if you're a normal person and stuff. 
Starting with the cake, layer your ingredients, following with custard, then strawberries.
Top with the remaining whipped, stuff, then a decorative arrangement of berries.
Pop this bad boy unto the fridge.
Speaking of bad boys, this one has straight A's in college.
And he DID put his portion in a bowl.
A very BIG bowl, but a bowl nonetheless.
Strawberry Cheesecake Shortcake Trifle.
I'll be right back. I need to go drop a marble in my Pounds To Lose vase.
Completely. Worth. It.

Wow this looks too good!! I didn't even know there was cheesecake flavored pudding, maybe it's best I didn't read this after all! Kudos on the Straight A's! I hope my baby does that well in college!!!
