Cantaloupe Gazpacho and Lamb Burger Wraps

It is clean out the fridge week, before we leave on Sunday. I had a canteloupe, and was browsing soup recipes when I came across this simple cantaloupe gazpacho recipe from Gail Gand, The Food Network

1 canteloupe seeded, skinned and cubed
1/4 c. rum
1/4 c. cream
4 fresh mint leaves (I used 8)
2 T. orange juice concentrate (I used 4 T. passion fruit juice concentrate)
zest from a lemon

Throw it all in the blender, and chill.

A few weeks ago, Jerry posted his recipe for grilled lamb burger rollups on his blog. I thought they sounded great, and filed the idea away in the back of my head.

Last week, Cindy Ruth put her spin on them and posted her recipe for lamb burger pitas on her blog, Baked Alaska.

Mine were simple and straightforward. I used wraps from Trader Joe's, red onion, fresh basil leaves, and some creamy Caesar dressing, some leftover grated gruyere along with the ground lamb, seasoned only with salt and pepper. Yum.
