The Somerton Tamale Festival has been growing, and it’s getting to be somewhat of a hassle. Every year the crowds get bigger and more vendors are set up. And parking becomes more bizarre.

But it’s still a good festival to see.

It didn’t occur to me until I got there that I needed to search for a “heart-healthy” tamale, if such a thing even exists. I decided that the closest I could get was chicken and peppers, and spinach and cheese. The cheese is a problem with any tamale, but that’s the way it goes. I kept the number eaten real low.

I’m going to Quartzsite tomorrow where my “heart-healthy” choices are pizza and a reasonably good Mexican place.
