Homemade Gyros with Tzatziki Sauce
Came back to tell you this was a winner! The lamb chub had the perfect flavor of an authentic Gryo, and I was surprised at how thin it sliced without crumbling.

Lucky girl, Kayelle! I looked all over Costco last week for ground lamb, none to be found.

Thanks for posting back with such a positive review, Kayelle! Good to know. Steve's Gyro recipe is certainly on my to-make list.

Taxy, I love sandwiches and that beefy one from Dagwood's looks so good.

I decided to put off the scallops until tomorrow. I was too tired tonight. They are still pretty frozen, so I'm sure they'll be OK tomorrow. Never killed me before. I ended up nibbling on some Trader Joe's eggplant hummus on pita bread, and some celery and carrot sticks.

Just leftovers for me, scrounged a chicken thigh, stuffing and creamed mixed vegetables from the fridge. DH went to the big town straight from work and will pick up a few groceries. He will probably have something to eat at Costco ;)

Thanks Kayelle! So glad you enjoyed it. I was just thinking about making gyros this weekend.

Dawg, I've never seen ground lamb at Costco although their loin lamb chops and boneless leg of lamb are spectacular.

Ground lamb is hard to find in these parts too, and it's quite expensive but worth it. We have a large supermarket chain here called Von's and only some stores have it. You might try calling a big chain store in your area and maybe they can special order it if they don't regularly carry it.

I buy lamb in bulk, which reduces the cost to around $4.50 a pound. With the package I buy, there's usually a dozen or so pounds of ground meat. But our local grocer, Cub Foods also carries it for $8-10 /lb.

With the gyros recipe, I think you could easily substitute beef or veal, and it would still come out fine.
