Oh the weather outside is frightful
but they fire is so delightful - what??
The calendar said it was the first day of spring,
yet the outside said otherwise!
Oh, I wanted to see this outside my window this morning :
This is what I saw instead:
A glorious rainy stormy day!
No problem - rainy day sundays are alright with me.
In honor of the first day of spring and this glorious rainy day, I made a dish of
Spring Braised Leeks for brunch, they will go
along side poached eggs, ham steaks and toast!
Have a beautiful, peaceful any yummy Sunday!

Spring Braised Leeks
chicken or vegetable stock
salt and pepper
Clean the leeks well and pat dry. Split the leeks down the middle. Cut each half into thirds and place in a shallow baking dish. Dot the leeks with generous pieces of butter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and pour stock around the leeks - about a 1/2 cup.
Bake at 375* covered for 20 minutes , take the cover off and bake until the leeks have soften - about an additional 20 minutes.
