The Answer Is----
Ta Daaaa--- my daughter bought tamale making classes for her husband. They are both good cooks so they will probably enjoy it but I am anxious to see if they ever make them on their own. Reminds me of when my mama helped our neighbor Mrs. Fuller make them. Mrs. Fuller grew up in the country with mexican neighbors. She was in and out of their houses all time so she learned to speak Spanish or more like Tex-Mex and she learned to make tamales. In the 50's most people we knew didn't have air conditioning or even a fan. I wrote here once before how Mrs. Fuller always kept her windows closed so she was ready to go when her husband took the car out. She didn't want to be left home. Anyway her house was hotttt. Making those tamales was a hot job and a lot of mess to clean up afterwards but they sure were good to eat.
