Do people eat mint sauce with lamb in your part of the world? If so you culd make a batch of that.

I grow mint also, and I'm never quite sure what to do with it.

One thing I do sometimes is to make a Greek appetizer/side dish with it. I add chopped mint and thinly sliced cucumbers to plain yogurt. It's a very refreshing cool taste. I serve it when I make hot and spicy Thai food--it helps to cool the palate. It would also be good alongside lamb or other Middle Eastern dishes.
