Happy Holidays to everyone

Last Update: December 23, 2014

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year. Mario and I will be starting our yearly tradition of cooking Tamales tonight. That makes this time of year so special to me. I am so thankful my Mother-in-law and sister-in-law taught me how to do it!

Thanks and a very merry Christmas to you too. Pardon my ignorance but what are Tamales?

They are a very big Mexican tradition. We use Pork for ours. We cook it (boiled) and then fry and season it. We use the broth from the meat to make Masa which is the dough they are wrapped in. The Masa gets smashed into corn husks, filled with the meat mixture and boiled. They literally mean "wrapped food".

Its a two day job for us. When we lived closer to his family we met at his sister's house and the whole family participated in assembly line fashion around the table!
