HOT Tamales and Monday Christmas Memories
Yesterday my husband was so funny! I'm sitting posting my GTS post of my Christmas Cactus, and he comes up and asks me Out of the Blue,if I know how to make Tamales. We both love Tamales, and I've watched some friends of mine make them. So I told him, if he goes this week sometime and gets the ingredients, I'll try and make some. My favorites are the Sweet 'Dulce' ones with Pineapple, and the Spicy Red Chili Pork Tamales. He used to work as a Restaurant Manager, so he knows his way around a kitchen. Another thing I told him, He had to help me make them! I couldn't have all the Fun myself! So we'll see how they turn out!
Since I'm writing about my Husband, here's a funny Christmas memory I have of him, when I was pregnant with Katelyn. I told him he could buy me some nice warm JOE BOXER P.J.s, some really cute and comfortable ones. When he comes back after shopping, he looks so proud of himself for buying me EXACTLY what I wanted. The only problem was it was size XXXL. They were cute, but it was like I was wearing a tent, even being 7 months pregnant. He does a wonderful job in the gift giving department, this particular year, I'm not sure what he was thinking!! Anyways I get a smile when I think of him pulling the top out of the bag and the smile on his face, and then the look he had when he saw the look I had! Priceless!
This Thursday I'll have a special post about him!

What a guy. I love tamales and they are part of my Christmas tradition. Every year I make them -- like dozens of them, posole, homemade tortillas and if I have time I make empanadas too. I do so much other baking that I don't usually have time for those. But I can't wait!! Yummy.

And thanks for the "plug" at Mommy the Maid's blog. You're so sweet.

Sounds like you have a real sweetie for a husband. Isn't it sweet when they are so proud of themselves for things like that?

I love Tamales!! Send some please. :)
