Those tamales look amazing Scott! Much better than the mass produced frozen stuff we get here. Bet the taste is out of this world!

Thanks!

 

I posted that because last season we were talking Tamales on Jamie's glog, and we've been wanting to make them. The recipe is from Alice's Mom, who's from Mexico, and it's just plain killer. I would recommend making a half sized batch, as we spent 6.5 hours today making them. But dang they eat good! I sure hope some of "Yall make them!


It's all about the pods....

Last night was not only new years eve but my old man's birthday and his neighbor brought bacon wrapped venison tamales. I don't even know how to describe the party my taste buds were having.

Now that sounds good!

 

And say Happy B-Day to the old man <--I resemble that remark...LOL

 

When Alice and LB used to make Tamales together we would stew down 10lb of Venison and Alice would bring the Pork, it was then mixed.

Those Tamales look very tasty........I don't envy all the work that went into those, but I can see it was all worth the while.

 

Soil prep looks great , nice and clean rows. Betcha can't wait to get the 1st plants in the ground.

 

Best of luck with the 2015 season !

Mmmmmm tamales, one of the few benefits of working in foodservice in Texas almost exclusively with Hispanic coworkers. Plus if you make more than you can eat you can freeze em and reheat later. Good on y'all for doing em up right Devv!

Scott, you're gonna have to start a Flog too!

 

...and, GO BUCKEYES (I know it has nothing to do with THP, but the game is just about to start)

So many peppers, so little time!             GO  BUCKEYES !            Anymore, it seems the only thing I get done quickly is get older

LB and I moved to Tejas in 1978; although we miss the East coast cuisine, we have most definitely embraced the local fare ;)

LOL, I struggle to keep up in the glog section ;)

 

Well 44 for 70 in 12 days isn't too bad; sure beats last year!

 

Funny thing, I had saved the Jiffy pellets from last year that the seeds never germed in and decided to reuse them for the tomato seeds. Just in case some old pepper seeds germed. I knew I wouldn't have any pepper plant mix ups. Well the old seeds are popping. Go figure ;)

Love me some Tamales, but I can't have them too often... :eh:  Yours look delish Scott! :drooling:

 

The garden looks great too! I love that lush green look it had just before you tilled it under. Man... planting onions already... you got me officially jealous. ;)

Man oh man Scitt, there I was looking a my and reading all your garden and soil love and then you throw this tamales at us. That's just not right bro but I bet they were mighty tasty :) I'm loving what your doing with the cover crops and all. It's a lot of work but well worth it to grow and replenish the soil and the soul.

Peace be with you and a Happy New Grow Year!

Those Tamales will last us a long time, I'm in the same boat, they taste great, but are a bit rich. But I'd rather get the calories from them versus cake ;)

 

Onions go in the ground in 2 weeks!

That Tamale recipe is a real keeper! We were pleased that they came out exactly the same as when Alice mixed the ingredients.

 

"It's a lot of work but well worth it to grow and replenish the soil and the soul." Well said! I just love being outside "doing something", even if it's stacking wood.

 

Last night we were watching a movie and my wife thought she heard thunder. In January? Well she was correct. Nothing on radar, but it was just like a spring storm and we got an inch of rain. Can't beat that!

 

We brought everything inside that we could lift. It's supposed to freeze 3 mornings this week :confused:

I've always heard people mention tamales, I guess on tv, but I've never known what they were. I don't think its something we have over here.

They look really good, I bet they taste good too! Maybe I'll try making them one day.

 

Your plants are coming along nicely, the bed too. Good work dude

I was born in NY and lived there until a month before I turned 20, never heard of a Tamale before that. I try most anything, except raw fish. And it wasn't long before I tasted Tamales. They're a quite heavy food, but very tasty. The Masa (Google it) might be the hard thing to find in your locale. Here in Devine it's really easy to find. I would start out with a 25% recipe to see if you like them....

I'm hoping the soil works well this season!

 

I hope a few peeps actually make them, the recipe is fantastic!

Man, the glog is off to an awesome start! I love the soil prep - nice work on the cover crops.  I want to do more with cover crops as I'm reading and hearing a lot of positive stuff about them.  And then the food... oh my... Looking so good!


Righteous heat!

I'm with you on the raw fish, I hate it.

I'd like to give this recipe a go I'm always up for cooking something new

Scott,

 

So evnvious of your long grow season, good to see your of to a good start with the soil prep and hopefully you can get a source for more leaves. I'm taking notes and I hope to add some more leaves in the spring to mine as well, THP member "catherinew" has been a very helpful source getting leaves for me. Also, wanted to mention that when I was over at her garden last season I noticed she had peices of old carpet down on her pathways for keeping the weeds down, Ive never had a garden big enough to worry about keeping the weeds down but thought this idea was brilliant, I may have to give it a try this year if i can find some remnants on craigslist.

 

I will also give ya a big thumbs up on the tamales! They look damn tasty, I have never made them before because was a little sketchy on the whole process.  Thanks for the tutorial, with it I may have to give them a go.

Man, that tamale essay pushed me over the edge. I just gotta try making a batch --now that my freezer's getting a little room in it.

That soil looks good enough eat! It just don't look like Tejas anymore :D

Ahi Tuna. A  light searing with a cold center- wasabi until you cry. I could eat my weight in it. You gotta try it. Raw oysters too for that matter ;)

Good to see some little ones popping.
