Summer Fun

I love summer.  Living in Canada means that we get very few months of hot weather; generally it’s 10 months of winter and then 2 months of construction.  But nevertheless, we DO get some nice days, and I try to take advantage of it.  This means grilling and BBQ-ing and chilling outside by a pool.  Lucky for me, plenty of my friends are up for this.  One of my friends, Jordan, has a pool at her parent’s place, and we spent an afternoon hanging out and making lunch.  On the menu included a pear and candied pecan salad, lamb burgers, and apple crisp.

Lamb Burgers

  • 1 lb ground lamb
  • half an onion (we used red, but I’ve also done it with white), diced
  • several cloves of garlic, minced (I don’t remember how many I used, but I love garlic, so a liberal amount)
  • salt and pepper
  • cumin
  • ground coriander
  • 1 egg
  • breadcrumbs

Take all the ingredients and mix well.  You can adjust the seasonings to your taste; we found that lamb really takes spice well and we could really tasted the cumin-it was delicious!  We just eyed it and threw in what we had on hand.  Form the lamb into 4 patties.  We grilled them on the BBQ and didn’t even have to garnish them with anything, they were so tasty.  I did this again a week later and didn’t have coriander, but that was fine.  I just used cumin, and it tasted fabulous!

I hope everyone is enjoying summer as much as I am!
