Joe


actually, the lobster liver, is also called "tamale." Maybe that's why in the US, the tamal (which is the singular for tamales) is called a tamale? I dunno, but in any event, for some reason, in the US, we call a "tamal" a "tamale," which is spelled and sounds the same as the tamale (the liver), of the lobster.


Right, except the liver of the lobster is spelled tomalley.

HA! Oh, dear, I guess I did not see ann's wink. I was thinking too hard about Hello Kitty. Anyway, I was talking to a guy from Mexico today about this Tamale Fest, and he says he's traveled ALL over Mexico, and there are HUNDREDS of different types. It's funny that the LOS ANGELES (!) TIMES piece mentioned Strawberry Tamales, and this guy Raul just brought that subject up out of the blue! Now, that I want to test out. How about blueberry tamales? Sounds good to me. I really love the green corn tamales in the summer at El Cholo here in LOS ANGELES (!). Those are practically dessert. Raul says you can pretty much put anything in there. I can see that. How about say, a pizza tamale, with chopped salami and mozzarella? Or a nice pesto tamale, with basil (duh), garlic, parmesan, and toasted pine nuts? If you're gonna go as far as strawberry, well, hmm... How about adding Mexican chocolate? Like in moles? Or you could do a ratatouille (sp?) version, with zucchini and everything. I won't even approach Asian additions, I don't know enough about that subject. Oh, the mind reels here. A Soul Food tamale, with black-eyed peas and stuff. Hawaiian tamales. Swedish meatball tamales. And wait... What about adding booze? Champagne tamales. Single malt scotch tamales. Tamales with beer. I'll quit now.

When I (Amy) first moved to Maine, people always asked me where I was from. When I replied L.A. (as in Los Angeles), nearly everyone replied "Oh! Lewiston Auburn?"

Lots of great tamale ideas Salin!

How about Tamale Tamales, or tomalley tamales?, made with that other kind of tamale, or tomalley.

Oh, Hawaiian tamales, those are made w/ Spam.

And, don't forget the South American tamales, made w/ bananna leaves.

Ah, PJ8, Spam tamales. W/pineapples. I think the native Hawaiian interest in Spam goes to what they call "Cargo Culture", wherein we ran around in DC3s, etc, dropping "cargo" all over the Pacific. With parachutes. Maybe not so much Hawaii, but Guam, New Guinea, places like that. I AM NOT calling the recipients dumb, OK? Please nobody get on my case about that, let's stop that before it starts, but I do think it's interesting that these folks thought we were aliens, or gods, or something, flying around dropping "cargo" for them.

History flash, we may all be aliens! Looks like the building blocks of life may have come from outer space. Makes sense to me cause earth was a molten ball of rock. That is not to say that a bigger hand did not have a part in things.
