Another Picnic with Friends

Saturday we were invited to a picnic at the King's house here in Sayaxche.  They are another missionary couple that live close by and we have enjoyed getting to know them.  They have a beautiful house and a lovely yard.  It's a great place for a picnic.  They invited several others as well and we had a good crowd gathered there to eat.  We all brought a covered dish to share and had a delicious meal.  Here are a few photos from the day-
under the shade trees where many of us ate

the food was spread out on the front porch

In addition to a green bean casserole I also took this dessert-
it was yummy!

After lunch several played volleyball,
some rocked on the front porch, some stayed under the shade trees and talked, some played on the new playground,
and some played on the trampoline.
 It was a very fun afternoon!

1 pkg (18.25 oz) brownie mix
1 3/4 cups cold milk
2 pkgs (3.4 ozs each) white chocolate instant pudding and pie filling
1/4 cup warm water
4 tsps. instant coffee granules
2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed
3 toffee bars coarsely chopped (I used brickle chips)

Lightly spray 9x13 pan with oil.  Prepare and bake brownie mix according to cake-like package directions.  Cool completely.  Whisk pudding mix into milk until mixture begins to thicken.  Dissolve coffee granules in warm water, add to pudding mixture, mixing well.  Fold in whipped topping.  Cut brownies into 1-inch cubes.  Chop toffee bars.  Layer 1/3 brownie cubes onto bottom of trifle bowl.  Top with 1/3 pudding mixture, pressing lightly, and 1/3 of chopped toffee.  Repeat layers two more times.  Chill 30 minutes before serving.
