Strawberry Ice Cream Flan

We've just enjoyed another great bank holiday weekend with great friends. Admittedly the weather wasn't great, in fact it was pretty poor, but a few heavy downpours wasn't going to stop us from enjoying ourselves.

The weekend started on a drizzly Saturday morning with a trip to Sainsbury's to stock up on some Prosecco and a lovely Mum/Daughter coffee stop. Whilst in there we spotted a few picnic accessories which I couldn't resist.

It was then back home to make a chocolate cake before our guests arrived.

We spent a fun filled weekend with a good blogging friend, and her family, as well as another friend and her family. The kids all got on so well together, and, despite the miserable weather when we went to Alton Towers, never moaned a bit.

We managed to buy a huge amount of strawberries between us, some of which were used in our Saturday night Pimms, some for our Sunday night Prosecco and even after the children were let loose on them with a chocolate dip, there was still some left, although they were a little on the soft side by then.

I picked out the 3 best looking strawberries and then made the rest into a sauce for a simple to make ice cream flan.
