She put a pork roast on at 7:30 this morning and we just now washed up all the dishes, although there are still about 2 dozen tamales in the steamer. We soaked corn shucks, removed the seeds and pulp from dried Ancho chiles, made dough from Crisco, water, and masa harina. What a job! Dorothy said, "That's it", for her. Of course, it was labor intensive, but good grief, we made four dozen. Only two left in this picture. I ate those. They were so good it made me want to say "Ya no bueno por cungada!" Spanish? No. I just made it up.
