I was just thinking about what else I have going on this week and realized that I have not told you about our annual Tamale Day. This year, we will gather and make a seriously crazy amount of homemade pork tamales on Saturday March 3, 2012. Extended family from as far as Michigan are driving in for this family event & you will have the pleasure of meeting them right here on my blog!
Honestly, it’s not something that I mention to too many people in my ‘face-to-face’ life because everybody wants homemade tamales then and I only get about two dozen to take home for the year. Trust me, they only last in my house for a week or two.
So now you know. Tamale Day 2012. My Dad will pick me up at 5am to travel to the west side of Chicago to get the masa. I’ll take pictures and tell you all about it!
