ISO dinner recipes that uses FRESH MINT

I've got lots of fresh mint left over from a dish last weekend. I'd hate to waste it and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions? It's darn freezing here today, so salads are not really something i'm craving. I'd prefer hot savory dishes. "Worst case" scenario I'll just use it to flavour water but thought there must be more uses than that!
If you can get your hands on some lamb chops...broil them and serve with a yogurt sauce that includes garlic, lemon juice and chopped fresh mint. Serve with some couscous and pita.
Or howabout a lamb stew? Something more Moroccan with prunes and apricots and maybe a handful of chopped mint thrown in at the end?
Or something like pho? An asian broth with thin sliced meat, noodles and top it with fresh mint leaves and bean sprouts and such?
Make Indian food to serve with cilantro/mint chutney...That will warm you up... and it uses quite a bit of mint.
