I'm just a little late on sharing about Christmas with you all. We had a fabulous time with the family! This was our first Christmas in Dallas, so I wanted to show-off my Latin skills in the kitchen. Christmas dinner consisted of 4 types of tamales and brisket tacos! Ay yi yi! They were awesome! This Latina wanna-be doesn't use lard in her tamales. I made some using extra virgin coconut oil and some with extra virgin olive oil. This was my second experience making tamales, and my first time experimenting with tamales de dulce (my Mexicana Amiga told me they tasted like her mom's, so I guess I did good).

I think nephew #2 likes his super hero tent.... He drug it around all day. :)
