Not that anyone will care about this. . . but I just made my first homemade hot tamales. Have you ever had a tamale? They are a meat mixture covered in cornmeal and wrapped in a corn husk. Sounds weird, but my grandmother used to make them. I remember eating them as a kid at her house with chili. I called her the other day and asked her for the recipe. The recipe sounded disgusting. I asked her if she was sure that was how she made them when I was little (she’s 81 now). She laughed and said, “Of course.” I have had the ingredients for a week, but no time to make them. And let me tell you. . . they take some time! It was pretty disgusting to make and Robin would die if I told her how I made them. But I just took them off of the stove and tasted one. Surprisingly, they tasted just like my grandmother’s! And I made chili last night so it could sit for a day and the flavors could “meld” together before we ate it tonight. So, dinner for us will be chili with hot tamales!! Yum! I forgot to send a “love note” to work with Rick today so maybe I will put a note by his bowl of chili tonight and say “You are my HOT TAMALE!” Am I cheesy or what??
