It's Raining, It's Pouring....

Which would be fine, except that I still have a little leak on the porch.  That makes me so frustrated...they have been out here four times trying to find it.  At least it diminishes with each visit, so perhaps the next time will be the charm.

I made a pot roast in my new slow cooker - which was tasty, but tooooooo large. Hopefully it will accommodate smaller meals.  My mom used to make tamale pie for us kids when it was cold like now.

I loved it!  I am sure that it isn't really the best meal for someone as it is "pre" prepared, using the canned tamales, but to a hungry kid they were awesome!  Her recipe is as follows:

Tamale Pie

2 cans prepared tamales (take off the wrappers before using)
1 cup of pitted ripe black olives
6 3x3 slices of american cheese
1/4 cup chopped onion.

Lightly grease (or spray) 1 1/2 to 2 qt. casserole.
Arrange 1 can tamales on bottom.  
Add half the olives and onions, cover with half the cheese.
Repeat in same order with other half.
Slice up a few olives as garnish on top of the cheese.  
Bake at 350 until bubbly - about 30 minutes.
Let it set 3 or 4 minutes before serving so it isn't goupy. :o)

I'll have to make some to post a photo...could not find one on the net!
