I did not have garlic, leeks or celery so those are left out. Also my son in vegan so I used veggie broth and omitted the cheese, but I have a chunk of parm/reg in the fridge so I might shave some on there later. I made this for lunches at work this week. Have a happy healthy new year 2014!

Brandy Plum Sauce
My co-worker Aurea has a plum tree and the birds are getting at them so she brought some to work and wanted me to make her a tart or a cobbler for Monday. Of course today was the hottest day of the year (at least 90 degrees) and there was no way I was going to turn the oven on. So instead I made some brandy plum sauce and bought pound cake to take to work
The sauce is a piece of cake.
Cut plums add 1/2 cup of sugar 1/4 cup of water 1/4 cup of brandy 1/2 teaspoon of Cinnamon cook for 15 minutes and BAM sauce is cooked.
