    Now if there was a cheese truck there too, the same guy could threaten to cut some cheese.

    They could then, if successful, combine their swag and make:

    “Leeks au Grautin”

    8 medium leeks
    3 Tablespoons butter
    3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup milk (whole)
    1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
    1 cup fresh bread crumbs

    1. Cook leeks; place in broilersafe 9″ × 9″ baking pan.
    2. In 1-quart (1 litre) saucepan over low heat, melt butter; stir in flour, mustard and salt till smooth.
    Gradually stir in milk; cook, stirring, until thickened; stir in cheese till melted; pour mixture over leeks.
    3. Sprinkle with crumbs. Broil to brown crumbs.

    " Preparing Leeks"

    Cut off roots and trim leaf end. (as you would with green onions)
    Cut leeks crosswise in half, then cut the root ends lengthwise in half.

    Rinse under running cold water to remove sand.

    To cook:

    In saucepan over medium heat, in 1 inch boiling, salted water, heat leeks to boiling.
    Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 10 to 15 minutes or until tender; drain. (and use)

    Notes from me:

    Anything in brackets is mine.
    Salted water: go light rather than heavy.

    Is it St. David’s Day? That’s when every good Welshman takes a leek – and wears it in his hat!

    Ah those were the days; we’d hear the music coming from the onion truck a block away. We’d ask mom for a quarter. My buddies and I would race down the street to meet the Onion man. I always had mine dipped in chocolate and rolled in crushed peanuts.

    Spare me the loooong recipes. Keep your comments short and pithy.

    Leeks are onions, and yes they have dirt in between the “layers”. And I rather enjoy the recipes, but that might be one ofthe differences between men and women.
