Alfie made tamales yesterday in celebration of the Christmas holiday. There is rarely an opportunity to eat traditional Mexican tamales around here that, when the occasion arises for an opportunity to make them, everyone is more than willing to help consume them.
Being a follower of my blog, Alfie (my mother) was encouraging me to take many shots of the assembly of tamales and arrangements that they made, as they lay prettily in their cooking pots. Funny enough I thought the pictures resembled flower bouquets rather than food.
The deliciousness of the tamales and the ambiance of my family made the trip worth the taking! Happy Christmas to everyone and I hope that the New Year brings you happiness and love.
