Ep 73 – Tamales!

Ali made tamales!
I combined parts of 3 different recipes to get what I wanted.
I used this one to do the pork and sauce – https://leitesculinaria.com/106882/recipes-red-chile-pork-tamales.html
I used this video from Cowboy Kent Rollins for the masa and some pro tips – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sR5eXtIbEDY&t=504s
and for instant pot portion of the cooking I used this recipe – https://cookingwithcurls.com/2018/04/23/instant-pot-red-chile-tamales/
They turned out awesome!

More work on the inexpensive memorial garden. It would have been my mom’s 75th birthday this year. We lost her19 years ago, and have still always celebrated her birthday. This year, I wanted to be sure to get the plants into the ground because she loved her summer flowers.

We were planning on converting an unused shed into a greenhouse, but we were unable to get the shed relocated, and I’m kind of done with this mess.
I think I’m throwing in the towel on getting this garden up and running this year
