I promised I'd tell you about our New Year's feast and so, behold, tamales!
If you want to see some tamale assembly pictures, you're in luck! (If you don't want to see them, you're going to see them anyway ;) I have to warn you, though. The following pictures were taken last time we made tamales (over a year ago), and while my picture taking isn't perfect now, it has definitely improved since the last tamale-making experience. In other words, proceed at you own risk..... dun, dun, dunnnnn............
The masa dough all spread out on the corn husk:
The filling spread down the middle:
The daily question: Have you ever embarked on the journey of tamale making?
I've done that journey twice. Like I said before, it's definitely a journey, but your taste buds will thank you! :)
