  •  We were at Taos years ago. (5+ / 0-)

    We watched them baking bread in the beehive shaped ovens. Beautiful area.

    Thanks Rich.

    I am a work in progress. Still.

      they call 'em, and if you tasted the food fare that comes from such ovens you might want to get rid of the fancier modern kind and start cooking in one of these ancient designs. They're not even hard to build. Thanks for posting, broths, and long live tribal fry bread!

      Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.

      •  Actually, they're called HORNOS (6+ / 0-)

        And that "tribal" fry bread? That came about after Uncle Sam sent our first peoples onto the rez, and having inadequate arible land to feed themselves (part of the point), they began food subsidies to tribes, largely consisting of refined wheat flour & oil, which = fry bread

        I usually go with the sourdough loaves instead, but sometimes the lure of a "navajo taco" tempts me.

        PrezObama's only mistake in the sequester is that he assumed that the Republicans would be more loyal to their oath of office to serve the people than their oath to Norquist to never close tax loopholes.

          they have always been on. Their lands may be more circumscribed, more encroached upon, but they haven't been moved halfway across the country like the Eastern tribes were.

          I think of fry bread as a Navaho thing (who also have stayed in their original lands) but maybe it's just a southwestern tribes thing.  I don't much care for it.
