I want tamales!

I looked up how to make tamales today on the internet. It doesn't look that difficult. Many steps involved, but none of them look painful. You have to cook all your meat first, then make the masa with the broth from the meat, soak the husks & put it all together. Easy peasy, but definitely a weekend project.

We always had fantastic homemade tamales at school when I was growing up. Our cooks were Hispanic and didn't speak much English, but they could cook. Interesting. I'll bet most of the kids in Kansas don't even know what a tamale is, and we had them a couple of times a month for school lunch. Texas vs. Kansas. Private vs. public.

It's 9:30, and I'm hungry

I hate being hungry right before I go to bed. It doesn't help that I've had 2 snacks since dinner. Ugh.

I've had a 5 day weekend, and I got a ton of stuff done. Sarah's room is re-done and touched up. I started drawing her name on the wall tonight, and will hopefully finish tomorrow. I cleaned and did about a million chores, had some great naps, and exercised my butt off.

Speaking of exercise, I'm trying to burn 300 calories 4x a week. Hopefully, some of my rear will start to disappear.

On an unrelated note, how gross is Dog the Bounty Hunter. Seriously dude. Lose the mullet.

Why I Need a Peek

I'm entering a contest to win a Peek portable email device. Too freakin' cool! You all know how much I hate the phone, and this little beauty would allow me to continue my hate affair by keeping in contact with YOU at all times by email! Yeehaw! Plus, it's bright pink, which would mix nicely with my apple green purse.

Think good thoughts! Learn more about this contest at:
