This Week's Menu

The last time I ate tamales, I was 18 and in Mexico. Recently, I was invited by one of John's coworkers to join her Mexican family in their annual tamale-making night. I'm sad to say that it's not going to happen. Rita was bound and determined, but there were too many obstacles. Can we all take a moment of silence to morn the loss of a perfect evening?

Thank you. 

Like every Sunday night, I'm posting my little menu:

Burgers and brussel sprouts
Grilled cheese and cream of tomato soup
Breakfast for dinner
Lemon-garlic kale salad


  1. I'm sorry you have to miss tamale making. Last Christmas a co-worker of my husband included us in their tamale making day. We took 3 of our boys and made enough to bring home a huge brown paper bag stuffed full of beef and pork tamales. We froze them for Christmas Eve and a couple other special occasions last winter. The kids are bugging me to do it at home but its so much work....

  2. I really need weekly menus like you. Maybe I'll just copy yours! Sometimes my brain is so tired of thinking, supper ends up being hodgepodge, last minute, random stuff.
