Dinners w/o Jan 22:

Sunday – out

Monday – Roasted shrimp with feta http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/roasted-shrimp-with-feta-recipe/index.html
Quinoa made in rice cooker
Salad lemon vinaigrette

Tuesday –
Patties with Mint-Yogurt Sauce Lamb Patties: Fresh cilantro leaves (~1 cup) Mint & basil leaves (~1 cup total) 1 cup greek yogurt 1 T cumin 4 t McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning 1 ½ lbs ground lamb 1-2 T olive oil
Mint-yogurt sauce: 1 cup plain yogurt 2 T chopped mint leaves salt to taste 2 t fresh lemon juice 1 small garlic clove, minced
Place herbs in a food processor and pulse grind them to a fine cop. In a bowl combine the yogurt, herbs, cumin and Montreal seasoning. Add the meat and mix to combine. Form into patties. Heat the olive oil in a non stick skillet over medium high heat, 3-4 minutes on each side.
Wisk together yogurt, mint, lemon juice and minced garlic. Add salt to taste
We like to serve these lamb patties on a bed of arugula tossed with a simple champagne vinaigrette, topped by lentils mixed with a little chopped red pepper, sliced green onion and lemon juice. We place the patties on top of the lentils with a dollop of yogurt sauce, chopped tomatoes and cucumbers. I like to serve with naan on the side, which can also work this meal into an elegant “hamburger” if an easier sell to the kiddos.

  1. Hi Michelle,
    Has been a long time since I have been out here – so fun to check it out and see you back full steam ahead. Bravo!
    Loved the taco soup and my kids even found it passable which is a major win in my house. Wanted to share a couple of staples we have leaned on at our home: Pork Shoulder Ragu (every time we have people over in snow season – comfort food!) http://www.dinneralovestory.com/instant-dinner-party/ with Herby Greens with Fennel http://www.dinneralovestory.com/herby-greens-with-fennel/. Another good combo we had this weekend was Buttermilk Roast Chicken http://smittenkitchen.com/2012/01/buttermilk-roast-chicken/ and Green Beans with Toasted Almonds and Mint (my FAV!) http://www.dinneralovestory.com/four-minute-side-dish/. For what it’s worth!
    Take care,
    Karen
