Autumn is about using your harvest, and this just sounded so warm and delicious! What struck me about the recipe wasn't the stuffed eggplant part (which I'm sure I've heard of before), but that it's stuffed with lamb. Yum! At least in my neck of the woods, lamb is something that's not eaten very much. I think it's because ground beef usually prevails in just about everything requiring ground meat.
Our family has lamb once a year. I make a Shepherd's Pie using ground lamb for Easter. I love the symbolism of it, but lamb is pretty tasty too! I'd love to try lamb more regularly, even if it's just to get my kids used to the taste to broaden their taste buds a bit more. This recipe looks like a yummy place to start!
