Happy New Year everybody! I hope you all enjoyed peaceful holidays and have started the year off on a good note. I wanted to share some pictures from my time with my family the last few weeks. We have a tradition every few years of making homemade tamales with my grandma. It is quite an involved process that takes most of the day and begins with ordering prepared masa from the Mexican market. Then we assemble our family team to fill and roll the tamales up. In the last few years we have dubbed this The Tamale Squad and have made everyone matching aprons. The prepared tamales get steamed, cooled, and finally frozen so we can enjoy them later in the month. Of course we set a few aside to eat for dinner that evening!
Does anybody else out there make homemade tamales? Or is my family weird? 🙂
