Tamale Friday!

I finally, after all these years, got around to acquiring for myself a tamale steamer. Tomorrow will be Tamale Friday!

I tend to judge a Mexican restaurant on the quality of their salsa and their tamales. Nothing disappoints like a poor tamale. A poor tamale is like bad sex but with no up side. The Mexican restaurant here in Dinkytown makes a disappointing tamale. Disappointing everything else, too, come to think of it, but I expected that after trying their tamales. And their salsa comes from a can, too.

So tomorrow is Tamale Friday here at the heathen house, and all will be right with the world. πŸ™‚

          Well… day after tamale, as it turns out. We got a late start so now it’s about 1:30AM, Amethyst went to bed a while ago so hasn’t had a tamale yet, and I’m up hanging around until they cool enough to refrigerate.

          They’re pretty darn good! πŸ™‚

    This makes me, as with other subject you discuss , like poker (Ah, the lost archives) feel like i was raised by peasants. Never ate a tamale, that I know about. In spite of having owned and run a Mexican Restaurant once years ago. enchiladas, burritos, and killer chili were our menu in brief.
    At any rate, ‘con mucho gusto’ to you and yours. Some day we’ll finally have ‘Taste-O-Vision’, and readers will be able to lick the screen.

      Never had a tamale? Add that to your bucket list! There’s probably not a good tamale to be had there in your home country, so if’n ya ever make it to Colorado I’ll feed ya proper.
