Just a quick post

I am making tamales tonight. I know it's a big task, but I'm always up for the challenge, but wish I had some help. Anyway, everything is prepared it's just the actual assembling of the tamales.

Another Christmas is here and I never had the chance to make my Christmas cards! Well, I made a few, but I had to mainly buy cards, grrrr! I love vintage collectibles and love, love graphics of years gone by. I found this really fun website that you can download (they have freebies, too) many different pics and graphics to make into cards or print on fabric, etc. It's called The Vintage Workshop. So I've been having fun designing and making Thanksgiving and Christmas cards. Although this one is pretty simple, because I was in rush to get it sent off to my cousin and I had to make do with I had on hand or what I could find! Did I mention that alot of my stuff is packed away and who knows where it is! It's been really frustrating.


Today has been beautiful compared to the last 6 or 7 days we've had. It's been raining like crazy, we need the rain, but this was rediculous. It seemed like it would never stop. I think yesterday morning was the worst. I managed to take a pic from our garage, yikes!


Okay, enough for now. I have to get back to my tamales . . . . I plan on another post for tomorrow -- I want to get something in for Ann Kroeker's Food on Friday. I still have some last minute shopping to do and I have a request for trifle for dessert on Christmas Day! Do I hear another challenge? Yikes, another busy day tomorrow!

Here you go, one last photo . . . . this is red chile sauce I made today to have with my tamales. Not a pretty picture, but the sauce is pretty tasty.


Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back tomorrow. And if I don't, wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
