Making Tamales

So a long time ago I told my MIL that I wanted to learn how to make tamales. Well that happened today! I have to say it isn't really hard, but it does take a long time. I make carnitas all the time and I always make so much I have lots left over that I use to make other recipes. Now I can add tamales to those recipes!

I've never used Masa before, now I am anxious to see what other things I can do with it, too!

After it's mixed up, then there is the assembly...

Aaron had other interests...

Though this was after we'd been there a while...both kids woke up this morning with sick tummies - I was up at 2AM when Aaron came in first, the later sister followed. Once it was out of their system they were fine, but just tired. So at first they both just wanted to lay down!

A good nap was just the ticket!

They both came around, though when the tamales were ready!

They were so yummy! We did restrain ourselves and between all of us there we only ate a few...and packaged up all the rest. 
21 DOZEN!

It was hard to put these in the freezer and not finish them all off today! LOL 
No, not bragging, but we did make some super yummy tamales!

    Sorry you all were sick. Hope you're feeling better!
    I think Aaron and Dylan would get along well. He's OBSESSED with WWE!
