7 Days: Day 3 (The Tamales are Tamales!)

7 days: Day 3 (The Tamales are Tamales!)

I decided to make tamales for Yule this year, but during the process I became quite worried as to how they’d turn out. The husks didn’t cooperate at all, I think they needed to soak longer maybe. The process required a lot more cuss words than I’d been prepared for. But when it came time to eat them they were not bad at all. They aren’t the prettiest tamales ever, and some on the edges of the crock pot got crispy (mmmm…. crispy…) but they generally resembled tamales and were declared to be delicious by everyone, even my picky six year old.

I found the recipe here and it was fairly easy except for the part which was difficult (the assembly).

On a side note, I took this photo, was disappointed that my hand didn’t make it in the shot, and then realized that my torso totally also counts as me. And then I realized that my other hand actually did make it in the shot. Thank god I’m cute.

Such a time when cooking requires unexpected cuss words. Such is life. The tamales look great.
