I'm grinding my pork, chilies, onoins, garlic and spices for my Tamale filler for Christmas dinner, today. Will make my masa later.

For today...turkey pot pies.

Tamales are awesome. I made some for Christmas a few years back!

One of my nurse aides and I usually do up a huge batch every year, but they have a new baby and he's not up to it this year. (gee, I wonder why) Last year we did up 40 pounds of pork into tamales. They ran out in August. I'm just shooting for about 4 pounds this year.

They are definitely more fun to make as a group project.

Oh yes, before we moved to Missoula, my Sister-in-law and I made them each year. I took me about 10 years here to find a tamale partner.

So last Sunday we were on the road so I wasn't able to tailgate. We did make it to the Windy City Dawg Pound to watch the game and I wanted to make sure to thank them for their welcome.

This week I had planned on making chili for the game. Friday my friend called and told me he had a goose for me so plans, well, they changed.

I have the goose cooking, it won't be ready for the game but that is ok as we have a large container of pate.

What are you having for the last regular season game?

SO is making individual chicken dinner pies with puff pastry crusts for us tonight. I'll be watching the Patriots walk through their last game against the Dolphins.

Why is it the food that is the most time intensive gets talked about the most?
