Icecream pudding enticed me enough, but combined with bread to make a delicious pudding was a great idea ! I had a pack of strawberry custard and some fresh strawberries that are just making its way to the local markets here.
So, although not a typical “Fall”fruit, we were allowed to use local pre-winter produce for this theme, so I ended up using strawberry. Kids love it for its warm, fuzzy strawberry flavour. SO, its a quick to make dessert to satiate those late-night-movie sweet cravings ! Its also a great make-ahead for parties, so you have a delicious dessert for your potluck !
