Hot Tamales

For two years in a row, I have been wanting to go to my friend Mara's house to make tamales and every single year something has come up. The first year I had just lost Cole and I didn't think I'd be up to it. Last year I was pregnant with twins (and no one knew yet) and I was sooo sick. I didn't think I'd be able to make tamales or be near anyone without getting sick - so I had to cancel at the last minute. This year I was finally able to do it!!!

I am going to apologize in advance because my iPhone camera had the flash stuck on and I didn't realize (the night before I had set it to stay on flash). Oops. But I want to post the photos because they're still memories!!

We ate the tamales for Christmas Eve (this is our third year hosting Christmas Eve Dinner) and Tim's Birthday! They were a big hit!!! I made two dozen this year, but I think I'm going to try three or four dozen next year so I can keep some frozen for a tamale dinner later in the year!

I have lots of photos from Christmas Eve and Christmas that I'll be sharing soon!!
