My favorite things. In these little cubbies are some of my teacup collection, my mom's Christian Dior perfume, some gifts that my sister has given me, and my metal type blocks. I love my sunny little studio, its my girly space where I can make a mess working on projects, I will miss it when we move.

It all seemed to fall into my lap. I found a great deal on Pork
Butt Roast, (you'd think that they'll call it something better like rump, or tocks) less than a dollar a pound, then I went to the thrift store and found a streamer for my pot for $1. For the rest I made a visit to this great Mexican Market, Carnicerias Guanajuanto, where I found all the ingredients I needed for under $10. Not bad for about 5 dozen or so pork tamales. I used the directions on this website. http://www.sonofthesouth.net/tamales/Tamale_Recipe.htm
The directions are a little bossy about saving the meat juice but the tamales were so tasty.
