Cooked some corn in husk on the grill the other day.  Saved the husks and have been letting them dry.  I have fine ground some corn meal.  I have lard.  I didn’t render the fat for the lard.  My bad.

Today, I am smoking a chicken.   Gonna bone it out and use some for tarts.  The bones will still have some flavor to give so they go into a stock pot in the a.m., the rest of the meat?  Tamales.
