80 Dozen Hot Tamales
Maria loves making tamales and makes the best that I have ever eaten. She makes what she calls rancho tamales, the kind made in the country.
Diane has been wanting to learn to make tamales for some time and took the opportunity today to work with Maria and the girls in the kitchen to make tamales for our annual Christmas party. They started after lunch and worked all afternoon. I was in and out of the kitchen most of the afternoon taking pictures of each step in the process. Every time I went in to see how things were going the girls were laughing and joking.
The process of making tamales brings out the Christmas spirit and Holiday cheer, because in Mexico tamales are made mainly during Christmas and is usually a family affair. Most of the people in our company have worked together for many years and today our family got together and made traditional tamales for our annual party.
