Today was errand day. I replaced a lost pass to my parking garage, made a run to West Memphis for groceries, and dropped off some liquor I’m donating to the New Year’s Eve party in South Main tomorrow night. On the way back I stopped at BP Riverside for gas. I came in and gave the deli selection a look.
“Let me give you a sample,” the guy at the counter said. He gave me a homemade tamale covered in chili. It was really good, good enough that I bought another one to take home. They sell them for $1.99 each – beef, pork or chicken tamales covered in chili and cheese or salsa. They also have a dinner with two tamales and two sides.
I think he knew I’d mention the tamales in my blog in exchange for a sample, but what the heck, I’m not above whoring out my blog for a free tamale.
Info about Orleans on Front still to come.
