For dinner I decided on lamb patties in pitas. I was lucky to find some ground lamb (you know where, c'mon) so I mixed it with fresh parsley, the aforementioned dried Greek oregano, and salt and pepper, then formed it into pita-sized patties. Whilst I was doing that, I grilled some eggplant to be chopped and used as a condiment; I also made my own version of tzatziki, with diced cucumber, yogurt, crushed cumin seed, and garlic, all stirred together. I removed the eggplant to cool then cooked the lamb patties. Halved the pitas and each pocket got a pattie, some eggplant, purple onion, tomato, and sauce. I like to eat my hot peppers on the side. All in all, a most excellent food day.
Today we went to NoneSuchFarms because we made the mistake of watching Tony Bourdain in Chicago last night and I decided we really, really needed to have hot dogs in the house. They make a wonderful dog so I picked up a dozen, along with scrapple (yes, it's full of yum, get over yourself), some more ground lamb (I want to make a moussaka-ish pasta dish), dried cherries, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, and other bits and bobs for the cupboards. Also a bigass salad that I shared with my mom so I can completely justify the doggies for dinner.
Oh, I'm on the Foodie BlogRoll. Yay!
