Just Dessert

Grapenut Butternut Flan

I can hear you all going "HUH???" out there (or worse) (and yes, I'm talking to you, Susan) so I want to explain why I came up with this dessert.

My dad's birthday was last Friday, and he'd requested the main item for dinner, but left dessert entirely up to me.  So I was thinking about all the things my father likes for dessert.  Part of the list included things like squash pie, grapenut pudding, and, most recently, the eggnog flan I made around Christmas and New Year's.  Hmmmm.  The wheels began to turn.
