Stay out of our corn husks!

So I screwed up.

In this week's review of Lily's, I mentioned chicken tamales. Dutiful readers have been dropping by Lily's and asking for said tamales. One problem: Lily's doesn't have chicken tamales. They have pork tamales, which is what I ate there and meant to write but, well, just didn't. Chalk it up to what we in the biz call a brain fart.

My apologies to the Esparza family for the mistake. And all you readers asking for the chicken tamales, try the pork: They're, uh, just as good.
