By the way, Kelly's recipe ended up making 64 (med. to small) Indian Fry breads. =) ~Here are a few of the 64~
~Indian Fry bread~
From Sis. Becker
1 Pkg. rapid rise yeast
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. shortening or oil
2 cups warm milk or water (Sister Hooper uses dry milk. Really nice flavor and texture!)
5-7 cups Flour
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar, salt, shortening/oil, and warm fluid. Stir well and add flour.
Mix till well combined. Cover and let rise one hour. Roll or pat into circles 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick and let rise a little.
Heat oil in skillet and fry till golden. Drain and enjoy!
Makes 6-8 large taco breads.
My friend Ruth Hooper shapes her breads with her hands on an oiled cookie sheet. This prevents the flour buildup in the frying oil which sometimes burns and taints the flavor of the bread.

~One thing I love about having company over is setting a fun pretty table. BUT... this time I was toooo busy rolling out and frying 64 Indian fry breads, so I never got to set my pretty table. Our dinner ended up being more like a buffet. =)
~Indian Fry Bread~
from Kelly Jones
Mix together in a large bowl:
1 cup of oil
1 TB salt
3 1/2 TB yeast
3/4 cup of sugar
Add 6 cups of warm water and stir until yeast is dissolved. Stir in 14-16 cups (this was always up to the maker's discretion) of all purpose flour until dough is no linger sticky, working it in with your hands near the end. Cover and let rise for 1 hour. Roll into desired shapes and fry in hot oil. Drain and serve
It is VERY important that your oil be hot. To test drop a small piece of dough in. If the dough floats to the top quickly and begins to brown your oil is hot and ready to go.

~Here are Kimberly and I rolling and frying away.~
~Our company and my family loved them.~ =)
~Since we don't have any living room furniture yet, we turned the table long ways and added another one, so we all could sit together.~
Dear Sis. Farly held Mary for me...which was a HUGE help.~
~Mary is showing you what we all felt like doing after we got done eating the delicious Indian Fry bread tacos!~ =)
