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. 🙂
