Yesterday was full of family and friends. And lots and lots and lots of tamales! We all gathered at Val and Buffalo’s house for a tamale making party. 50lbs of masa, a turkey plus three turkey breast, and a couple of pork roasts later we had hours of wrapping and folding and talking and making. It was a lovely day.
