I always substitute ground turkey or lamb in this Greek favorite. Serving it in pita pockets is a fun and different twist on the regular burger in a bun... Wordful Wednesday
Mini Greek Burgers
3/4 cup shredded and seeded peeled cucumber
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons snipped fresh dill
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pound ground turkey
4 pita bread (6 inches), halved and warmed
2 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced
In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
In a large bowl, combine the onion, parsley, oregano, slat and pepper. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into sixteen 2-inch patties.
Coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat for 2-3 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Serve in pita halves with tomatoes and reserved sauce. Yield: 4 servings. Enjoy!

To play along just answer the following three questions.
* What are you currently reading?
* What did you just recently finish reading?* What do you think you'll read next?
I am reading The Great Corgville Kidnapping by Tasha Tudor.
Caleb Corgi, outstanding student and part-time private investigator, senses that something is amiss in Corgiville. He has noticed a sudden increase in the number of raccoons in town. They claim they are tourists just passing through, but Caleb feels secrecy and conspiracy in the air.
I just finished reading My Daddy Likes To Say by Denise Brennan-Nelson
Does your daddy ever say things you find a bit confusing? How does he know "the proof's in the pudding"? How can I "fill his shoes" when my feet are so small?
Next, I will be reading Dragon Dancing by Carole Lexa Schafer.
Take a book about dragons. Add some sparkly paper and ribbons and spangles and scales. And then take some children with a little imagination and sense of adventure. What happens next? Why, a dragon dance! Joyful and exuberant, multicultural and multipurpose, Dragon dancing reveals creativity at its best and most fun.
