rollin’ with my homies

Tamales! We were rollin’ tamales this past weekend at the Second Annual Vaszquezes Teach Mattinglys How to Make Tamales Weekend. It’s turning into a day of tamale making, friends visiting, and family time overindulging. It was wonderful. My family is really doing well with positive and tear-free get-togethers. Either we’re entering a new awesome phase of our collective lives, or Christmas will be the long overdue disaster. (Everyone cross your fingers!)

Now, I would tell you how to make tamales except a) I don’t pay that much attention, b) it’s too complicated, and c) it involves boiling a pig’s face. I always skip that last part. Mmmm┬ápork┬átamales. mixin masa

Guess what you do when you’re finished making them? You sit around and eat them until you think you’re going to burst. Then you start making some more.
