The Great Tamale Roll of 2009

It was a fun.. weird day. Today was the Tamale Roll for tomorrow’s 1st annual Tamale Fundraiser for the Youth Mission Stay. I haven’t blogged about the Mission Stay.. (just wait until August 2nd- 7th) But here’s an overview.

Instead of going somewhere for a Mission Trip the Middle School and High School youth groups are going on a Mission Stay. We are “staying” here where we live, and serving our community for a week.

We met at a friends house to rolled the tamales. We made Chicken and Beef. Here’s what we did… in photos of course!

Here’s the shredded beef, with the masa and corn husks.

The girls are really serious about rolling their chicken tamales.

The beef rollers seem serious.. but they really were not.

Maybe it was the paper flowers in the middle…

Here’s the Beef.. all steamed and ready to go..

Chicken.. ready to do their job… feeding the tired, poor masses yearning to eat some tamales.

Rolling the Tamales.. makes the girls tired…

** For those of you wanting the recipe for some Tamales.. I will try to post it tomorrow in the “cooking” section.
