Everything is more fun with friends! And while I did not take any pics of today’s fun, trust me when I tell you it was great!
My friend Penny raided her freezer for a few pork roasts, I prepared everything else to make our Corn & Green Chili Tamales – and we dove right in today!!
Our kids played so sweetly while we cooked a few pork roasts, made about 6 cups of Masa to mix with the corn, green chilis and cheese to make about 5 dozen Green Corn Tamales!
Once things settled down this afternoon and the pork was finished slow cooking in the oven, I pulled it out, sorted through the fat and yuck – and got lots of great meat. Then I used a pinterest tip I learned about shredding chicken breasts in your Kitchen Aid mixer, and I used my Bosch to shred our pork, instead of the 2 forks! I hate to shred cooked meat – and oh my!! This tip was amazing!! So I have more shredded pork than I have ever seen, and tomorrow is full scare pork tamale production!!
Meanwhile, the kids played Monopoly, ran around outside, and jumped on the trampoline. A perfect day in everyone’s book I think!
I will try to get some pics tomorrow of our tamales to share!
