Happy New Year (Texas-style)

Howdy, y'all. Welcome to the new year and the new decade.

We welcomed 2010 with tamales. They weren't the delicious tamales hand-made by my mother-in-law. (She'd made tamales for every New Year's for the past few years.) They weren't the southern traditional collard greens and black-eyed peas nor the Korean traditional duk gook (a bland soup with flattened ovoid dumplings). They were our family's own tradition, and felt very appropriate in light of our move.

So here they are. Our tamale assortment from the Texas Tamale Company in Houston, Texas.

In Texas, our children disliked tamales. Today, they enthusiastically gobbled them up. Maybe they miss Texas a bit too. At least they miss Mexican food.

Perhaps we'll welcome 2011 with tamales home made in our renovated kitchen.

Happy New Year! May it bring you great food and many happy times spent with family and friends, new and old.
