It's tamale time. I've never made tamales, but I bought the stuff at Mi Rancho Mercado to give it a try. [click on post title for a gorgeous pic of one!] Thanks to Jim Winstead for posting those lovely Tamale Festival Photos at Flickr.
I think it must be like canning...a community thing. Problem is, I am doing it alone. Perhaps I should have a tamale making party?
It's all Daisy's fault (PBS) for showing me how to make Latin American food.
I'll keep you "posted." hehehe
