Get ready to fire up those grills this weekend. Memorial Day is on the way.
All right, in an area blessed with mild winters and sunshine 365 days a year (yes, even those rainy summer days see at least a bit of light), we don't really have a grilling season like the rest of the country. We have more of a barbecue way of life.
Still, as is the case in places with less outdoor cooking time, it's easy to get stuck in a rut.
Between hamburgers, turkey burgers, tuna burger, heck, even black bean burgers, you have to hit a point where you're over the same old patties and hot-dog-type options.
Why not try something a bit more exciting? How about lamb?
Right now, the Australian Lamb Board is making a big push for spring, and it's pulled together recipes from some of the top restaurants in the country that can spruce up your Memorial Day party -- you can always pretend you made it up.
