Charle’s Magical Education
Cooking with Elfman
1 pound ground lamb
1/2 pound ground beef
3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 (16 ounce) container Greek yogurt
1/2 lemon, zested
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large sweet onion, cut into 1/2-inch slices
4 slices green tomato
4 ciabatta sandwich rolls, sliced horizontally
1 (8 ounce) package feta cheese, sliced
8 baby arugula leaves
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
Mix the ground lamb, ground beef, mint, ginger, 1 teaspoon garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a large bowl until just combined. Divide evenly into four portions and shape in to large patties. Set aside. Mix Greek yogurt, lemon zest, 1 clove garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a bowl; cover and refrigerate.
Cook the lamb and beef patties on the preheated grill until the burgers are cooked to your desired degree of doneness, 3 to 4 minutes per side for well done. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Place the slices of onion and green tomato on the grill. Cook until lightly charred, about 1 minute on each side.
Spread yogurt sauce over the sliced ciabatta rolls. Assemble each burger by placing the patty on the the roll, and dividing the feta cheese slices over the patties. Top with a slice of grilled tomato, grilled onion, and 2 leaves of arugula, followed by the top half of the roll.

Love Potion #8.5 (The Sims 2 cocktail)
From the creator, Gourmet Gaming: “Is Valentine’s Day usually a total failure for you? Are you left bitter and alone, ranting about the commercialism and inherent flaws of the day to faceless people on the internet when all you really want is a hug? I know how you feel (I really don’t). If you’re looking to captivate a boy or girl this evening or you simply need someone to play co-op with because sometimes achievements demand you play a game with another person, then this is for you. Allow me to be your Gypsy Matchmaker. One sip of Love Potion #8.5 will ensure love at first sight and will only set you back a meagre §350! Can you really afford to put a price on true love? Fruity, fizzy and optionally intoxicating there’s no better drink to enjoy with the Sim you love this Valentine’s.”
