Lamb Patties/Kabobs
I have another lamb recipe for you this week from a cookbook called "Persiana, Recipes from the Middle East & Beyond," by Sabrina Ghayour. I think that food is a great way to begin to understand other cultures, after all, everyone eats! Food offers a reason to sit down together, to give thanks, and it's a great conversation starter. Plus, there are just so many great cuisines from around the world! This recipe was the bomb! It's a Persian kabob recipe with some rather interesting ingredients. It was just as good leftover too! In my American mind, kabobs are chunks of meat cooked on skewers on the grill or over a fire (camping memories!). I recently discovered that kabobs are not limited to chunks of meat! Kabobs can also be made from ground or minced meats that are formed around a skewer in a torpedo shape and then grilled! And, since the grill and I are not personal friends (Kevin and Z are responsible for ALL grilling here), kabobs made from ground meat can be formed into patties and cooked on the stove!! The following recipe was fantastic served with Cacik (also known as tzatziki) over a bed of lettuce and topped with fresh chèvre. It would also be great served in pita, wrapped in naan, or even wrapped in tortillas. Maybe add some chopped onion and tomatoes! I'm making a Herculean effort to avoid all bread (did a LOT of cheat eating on vacation and felt like I was dying) so salad style, as recommended in the book was how we ate them.

Mexican Meatball Soup
It's still soup season and I'm looking to change things up a bit. We make lots of chicken soup here, but why not make some beef soup? And south of the border flavors are always a hit in our house. So here we go - Mexican Meatball soup. It's pretty easy to make and it tastes great too!

Slow Roasted Eye of Round
This is a simple recipe that yields surprising results! I confess that this was the first Eye of Round Roast that I've ever cooked! Usually the kids make jerky out of the Eye of Round. It's supposed to be a tough if flavorful cut, so I was very pleasantly surprised at how good this roast came out. I can't wait to eat leftovers tomorrow!
