something tasty

Idzie's post here reminded me that I haven't posted any recipes yet!

Here's a truly toothsome pasta sauce. It is SO rich--lots of egg and cream--that you only want a tiny bit, not like tomato sauce, but it's so good!
Just was messing about in the kitchen one day and came up with this.
Amounts are variable--I never measure anything.

Saute some leeks or onions or green onions in olive oil or butter til limp. Add a sizeable dollop [nice and specific, aren't I?] of cream and cook a minute longer. Add any and all herbs you like. I've done basil, or a selection of herbs like marjoram and sage.
In a small bowl, beat one or two eggs [depending on number of people to be served] slightly. Mix with a little cream, and add to the mixture which is by now bubbling aromatically. A little salt, maybe. Keep stirring until it thickens. It'll probably curdle, but it still tastes fabulous!!

Well, we're off to pick blueberries, as it is a nice cool cloudy day. Whoo! Love blueberries!
