Tamalada, It's that time of year for tamales!

December 19th, 2012 at 10:01 am

We made and sold tamales at church twice this past week. The first time we planned a tamalada we made 20 dozen tamales but we kept getting orders so we made them again a few days later. In all we sold 43 dozen tamales to raise for missions. We charged $7 a dozen so we made 300.00 or so.

Have you ever been to a tamalada? It is alot of fun if you have several people helping and you get to chat and laugh for hours. Good for the soul!

I'm doing great with my grocery spending this month, so far I've spent 134.35 for the month and have 115.15 in the budget that I can spend. I've had several no spend days, but that's easy to do when you live out in the boonies!

I've spent way too much on Christmas gifts, I haven't gone over board but have spent more than I normally do. Oh well, it's a special time of the year!

My mother goes for her very first chemo treatment tomorrow, I hope she makes it through these treatments without it making her so sick that she regrets her choice. She had considered not taking it as she was afraid it would diminish the quality of her life. She didn't want to spend what time she has left being bed ridden and sick. She's lost so much weight now and is so sick to her stomach that surely it can only help. Anyway, please send lots of prayers and positive thoughts our way, we can use them!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!

    I will keep your mother in my thoughts.

    I LOVE tamales! I'm not surprised you got lots of orders.

    That is great about the tamales, they sound delicious. Here's hoping that the treatment leads to some insurance of success and health for your mom in the coming year. Take good care of yourself, too!
