Tamale Casserole, Steamed Broccoli and Cauliflower, Cherry Muffins

Dinner 11/15 by Dan

• Tamale Casserole

• Steamed Broccoli and Cauliflower

• Cherry Muffins

Masa was the highlight of this casserole, which Dan based on a recipe from The New Farm Cookbook. It's not something that we have handy and he picked it up at the seconds store in town. Also included pinto beans and spicy peppers. Very tasty with salsa. Optional cilantro on top for those who aren't totally soaped out by it. :)

Broccoli and cauliflower came in from the garden. To my knowledge, at this point, due to the cold, we only have brassicas left in the — broccoli, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts. Maybe a head of cabbage. Plus the celery and carrots that we picked before the frost. But no worries, we have lots of canned, dried and fermented deliciousness to enjoy through the colder months!

Cherry muffins used cherries canned last year since this year's fruit didn't really happen. They had big, yummy, juicy cherries in them and he even used the canned juice as the liquid in the recipe. Though I don't know what recipe he based them on. Here's a pretty nondescript pic. Next time I'll cut the muffin in half or something:
