Tonight I finished shopping, wrapping and baking. I'm exhausted and ready to head to Ventura to make tamales. I absolutely love that I am part of the tamale tradition now. On Monday I will be covered in masa, freezing my butt off, drinking coffee with all of my favorite auntie in-laws, Grandma Stella and cousin in-laws!
