I got a whole bunch of beautiful strawberries.. and I can't think of something simple that will impress..
Could anyone help
Cas, Trifle says simple & impressive, imo. This is one of Emeril's recipes, but you could use any custard or (vanilla?) pudding for the layers, and whipped cream with slivered almonds, if you wish. Another simple option is, using ready-made poundcake, Angel food cake or crumbled brownies
Or Strawberry Lemon Curd Trifle (with Ameretti cookies)
Another idea - I like the 'look' of this Angel Lush. You could use the strawberries & cream filling of choice here, as well.

Yet another simple idea - Individual strawberry shortcakes. If you can find the ready made shortcake shells in the market (they come about 4 to a pkg here), again use cream filling of choice, and everyone has their own individual dessert serving.
I posted a recipe here for Strawberry Cheesecake in a Martini Glass, that calls for ready made cheesecake, but it might be tricky to transport. If you don't see it, let me know.
