Default That's a lot of tamales

Maybe the rescue mission in your area could use donations of rice and pinto
beans. Any little bit helps. I'm going to Cash and Carry today to pick up
a couple hundred pounds of each to drop off.

NAMPA -- It's become an annual tradition - tamale making for holiday
dinners.

The Boise Rescue Mission and 75 volunteers rolled up their shirt sleeves at
Skyview High School Saturday to make 5,000 tamales.

The popular Mexican treat has become a holiday tradition at Thanksgiving and
Christmas meals.

"The Hispanic population is so large at our events in Nampa that we give
them the choice between a traditional Thanksgiving turkey meal or a
traditional Hispanic tamale meal," said Meagan Ellis, who helped make
tamales. "So they can have tamales, beans and rice or turkey, mashed
potatoes and gravy."

The Boise Rescue Mission still needs donations of Mexican rice and pinto
beans to help with the holiday meals.

Donations can be accepted at any Boise Rescue Mission facility.

More tamales will be made next weekend for the Rescue Mission's Boise
locations.

Janet,

Anything worthwhile is always a good cause.


Janet,

Good for you!!!

Yes, that's a good cause!

I have my charities in Philadelphia.

Funny though, I can't picture you picking up a couple hundred pounds of
anything... without my help. VBG

Best,

Andy

Well, come on over. With your help my husband will be a lot happier hefting
those 50 pound bags into the truck. I may have to wait until tomorrow. We
don't have a cover over the pick up bed and we are getting snow/rain today.

I don't know why, but the Thanksgiving turkey donation never really got to
me although I would send my $ donation to help out. Talking about making a
specific food for someone's traditional holiday made it more personal. And
maybe all those people making tamales got to the cook in me.

mmmmmm tamales. See, I'd go *there* for thanksgiving.

Of course, you can't make just "one" tamale, you sort of have to make
a bunch of them at a time. 5,000 is a pretty good "bunch".

There is a HUGE Hispanic population here where I live, and I don't see
any of them needing a handout. Tell the ones in Boise to come here
and work at the Tyson plant, they'll be giving us crackers handouts in
no time. Heh...
