Tonight's "Poor Man's" Dinner

I mean rustic...RUSTIC dinner!

Navajo Tacos! I am pretty hit or miss with the fried bread. Tonight was a miss. I didn't have the right kind of flour, so the bread turned out flat and chewy, as opposed to light and fluffy. Oh well! I topped the bread with a can of "Ranch Style" beans, cheese, onions and lettuce. Fairly yummy! I also made a plain piece for everyone to eat with honey. What is it about frying stuff that makes it taste so good?

My ex husband's new ex wife just moved here to Arizona. (We've been very friendly for YEARS. It's just easier and more pleasant that way.) I'm going to have her over to teach me how to make "authentic" fried bread. If you want to come learn, let me know and I'll set it up!

My mom used to make fried bread. We were just talking about it last weekend. I told her she should make some more. Yummy!

This looks delicious and nutritious. Nothing wrong with that in my book. You are right...frying does magical things to food....

Hi Drama Mama
Thanks for you comment! I really do hope you get a chance to visit NYC someday -- it's the greatest city in the world :-)

Congratulations on 500 posts! WOW!!!

Your fry bread looks delicious!

PS: Thanks for the "Blurb" web site info! I bet that costs a fortune to do, but I'll look into it as it would be fun to have.

OK, it's official..I am a blogger. You have hooked me up with a cutesy background. You have put me on your blogging friends and now I have lost where you wrote to me about your email address and the other stuff. Please go to my blog and leave your email again. I have to use up all my brain cells on my job. I think you may have changed my life with the cutest blog on the block. OMG. I was clueless. Write me. :)

Seriously, these are the meals your cousin wishes I would make.

In a word, YUM!!! I used to love going to MayFest at the U of U just for the Navajo Tacos. We used to have neighbors here that made the fry bread, but they're gone now :(

Will you make me some???
