"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Directions:
Whisk dry ingredients together. Add water gradually. Mix and knead dough until soft, but not sticky. Take out a baseball-sized glob and roll into a circle. The Navajo tradition is to poke a hole in the center of each circle to let out the evil spirits. This also has the practical advantage of helping the center of the dough cook through. Fry in 1/2 inch of hot oil. Serve with honey or use for Navajo tacos (see recipe).
