Calling All Strawberries!

Strawberry Shortcake a la Jennifer:
ok - it's last minute on a Sunday - 2 people are coming ( I know just my son
and his girlfriend) - then it's my friend Bobbie ( just a chef) then my other son and his girlfriend. I'm tired, I've shopped, I haven't cleaned, laundry up the giggie. My husband is frying a turkey. Ravy (my son's Cambodian girlfriend is making Papaya salad, Taro Mousse, and Jasmine rice), Bobbie is bringing hot wings and lemon cake and a sympathy card for losing our foster gem Taco (see last post), my other son and his girlfriend give the gift of being on time (shut up Mom). I made artichoke, tomato dip for baguette and crudites. We have vegetarians, red meat eaters, white meat eaters, Asian eaters, vast eaters.
ANY WHO - here's what I did... I took a Duncan Hines yellow cake package and baked it in a 9 x 13 pan according to directions. While it cooled I poked it with a toothpick. I then poured a can of condensed milk on it and let it cool. When cooled, I spread Cool Whip topping on the top, then sliced fresh strawberries and covered it with foil. Put it in the refrig. Leftoverers - ZIP! I think my husband had the last piece for breakfast.
