the tamale lady is my hero

Pork and Chicken Tamales, originally uploaded by cheezemaster.

She's been hounding us for a year now, and tonight we finally gave in. I don't know if it was the fact that it was 8 pm and we still hadn't eaten dinner, the driving 10 hours from Utah all day, or her awesome persistence, but the Tamale Lady in the Walmart parking lot found some more customers in us this evening.

And wow.

We should have bought our 6 for $6 spicy pork tamale wonders the very first time she quietly shouted (oxymoron?), "Tamales!?" at us. They are soooooooooo good.

So if you come to visit us, you might very well be served a meal by the Tamale Lady. That is, if we don't wake up with horrible food poisoning tonight.

Let me know if you're healthy tomorrow! The fear of that always keeps me saying no. But I know exactly who the 'tamale lady' is. :)

Nope, we're good!
