Cherry Caribbean MockaritaPosted: May 19, 2012
I made tamales today, again. But I made some changes to my recipe which I’ll change in the recipe itself.
It’s almost getting too hot outside to make tamales, it got to a whopping 68 degrees here today. Oh Spokane. . . seriously now, you had your winter, 8 months of it in fact, since you are determined to only recognize 2 seasons, that obviously means it is now summer. Please act accordingly. Sincerely, Laura
Despite the “warm” weather, cool drinks are always great w/ Mexican food, and my sweet mom gave me her old ice chipper. It’s loud and it doesn’t work very well. Often it stops working all together and I have to un-assemble it and melt the blade with warm water, then reassemble for it to work again. Matt questioned whether the Snoopy ice grinder, beloved by our generation would work better. I think it would.
But as long as Margaritaville ice shavers are $199 at Target and I have a conscious about spending $199 on something that shaves my ice for me, we will continue to use the beast with a thankful heart.
