OK, so I decided today to make tamales. Pork tamales for Christmas Eve and sweet tamales for New Years Eve. Tomorrow jalapeno and cheese tamales. I bought masa at a Vallarta Supermarket. I love that place! If you have one in your area… go check it out I you’re into Hispanic cooking.

I also bought Buenelos. … a New Years tradition but this year I didn’t have to make them.

Off to our friends house for dinner! Happy New Years!

I went shopping yesterday for pork tamale¬†meet and some masa. Found it at Vallarta¬†Supermarket. Wow, what a superstore for my tamale needs! Thanks to my friend Linda and Becky’s mom for letting me know about this place!

Today I am going g to get started on my holiday baking and candy making. Above are some of the new magazines that I am going to choose some recipes from. Busy day. My kids are anxious to deliver goodie boxes to friends and teachers.

Have a great day, Cherie

I am sitting at home relaxing with a cup of coffee … using my new coffee cups! I love them! Today will be a busy day, baking holiday cookies, finishing my shopping for the last gifts, and watching some good old movies.

I have been thinking about Christmas movies… I am wondering what everyone’s favorites are… please post yours!

Have a wonderful Tuesday and have fun with your last few days before Christmas!
