Navajo Fry Bread

2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon powdered milk
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
3/4 cup warm water
Oil for frying

Measure flour, baking powder, salt, and powdered milk into a mixing bowl; stir to combine. Add butter or margarine and cut into flour with a fork until mixture resembles coarse flour. Add warm water as needed to make a sticky dough. Divide dough into six parts and shape into balls. Flatten each ball to a circle about six inches across. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat, add 1 inch of oil. When oil is hot, fry dough circles until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels.

Serve with taco toppings, chili, or salsa.

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
