I love tamales. Just yesterday I stopped in one of our oldest little family-run Mexican restaurants and ordered a tamale and a root beer. The owner told me that since they are so popular, they have started taking orders from the townsfolk. I'll definitely get in on that. They want $2 apiece, and I'm more than happy to pay that since they are so good. Lots of corny masa flavor and a decent amount of filling.

Asparagus!!! I'm not going to get the chance to get there this season, but think I will plan on it next year. 😉
If you don't like the food, have more wine!

Try Herdez salsa with a dollop of sour cream on the top. It's a quick cure for dry tamale's.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Here is a link to our fine little Mexican Grocery located between Peachtree City and Fayetteville Georgia. You know the place is fairly authentic when most of the signs are in Spanish and the help speaks mostly Spanish.
