Tuesday's Tidbits

After today the weatherman says we may have 4 days with very low chances of rain. There is a lot of outside work that needs completed if it hold true. basic stuff like mowing and weed eating. And did I say that the temps have been in the 90's and the humidity has been at least 80%.

I am going to share a recipe this week that I found HERE. It is for Navajo Fry Bread. We just love this stuff around here and although I do not fix it as often as would be liked we still have it more than we should. I know this because of the way my jeans fit! Come to think of it though it is probably not just the fry bread!

Navajo Fry Bread

4 cups flour
2 T baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 powdered milk
1 1/2 T. shortening
2-2 1/2 cups very hot water

Now I do encourage you to check out the link and see how it is done. She will show you pictures and step by step details. 

But basically I mix by hand, dry ingredients first in  bowl then incorporate the shortening. Then I add very warm tap water with my hands until it all sticks together and forms a soft dough. I knead a couple of minutes more using some leftover flour if needed. I sit it aside for about 10-15 minutes and then proceed to separate and roll and fry.

**I will say sometimes it takes all the flour and sometimes it does not. It probably has to do with the weather or humidity or something like that. But cooking is something I enjoy doing and actually done care why it works out that way! But it does.

** I form mine by hand most of the time but sometimes I use an old rolling pin that is just like a dowel about 2 inches around, it doesn't have handles on it.

** I make them about 1/8 inch thick if we want them soft and chewy. But sometimes we want them a bit crisper so  roll them about 1/16 of an inch for those.

Let me know if you try this recipe and how you eat them or what you put on them.

  1. Looks wonderful. My husband's nephew makes fry bread all the time for breakfast. I have no idea how he makes his, but this looks good.


I try my best to read every comment. And I love hearing from you all.
