The Prairie Fire Lady Choir is on haitus until March or April, so instead of getting together to sing, we got together to make tamales!
Valerie hosted us, with the husks and sangria prepared.
There may have still been some singing and piano playing while we were together.
Molly made masa all day long. Masa for meaty tamales, masa for veggie tamales, and sweet corn masa for plain tamales.
Valerie (and her husband) have beautiful cats and Buddha alters.
These cookies were homemade and covered in edible glitter. Me = impressed.
Valerie showed us a few example tamales to get started, then we let ‘er rip!
We were putting our tamales into the big silver kettle for steaming.
We made so many! They took much longer to steam than anticipated.
Annette decided to grab my camera while I was making tamales. Proof that I helped!
Ready for eating!!
Yum! I can’t wait to do this again!
